So with the lack of PDCs, will ground-to-space missile/meson combat become nonexistent? It's a bit strange to think that neither can be launched from a fortified position or silo, and that shipyards will be basically the be-all necessity for proper stationary defensive platforms on top of their necessity for basically every ship.

no, regular beams will be able to fire STO from ground units.

Who unfortunately will have no armor saves against orbital bombardment.  :-\

They'll have fortification bonuses, which is arguably better ;)

And you can tow bases around. I build weapon platforms on Earth and then use tugs to get them to protect Mars, as an example.

I like the look of planetary terrain. I appreciate that a moon like Io will qualify as Mountain rather than Barren. 

In terms of sci-fi tropes for terrain, the only one that jumps out at me as missing are frozen-ocean and quasi-frozen-ocean planets, like Europa.

It also makes me wonder if system generation applies a tidal heating tectonics bonus or somesuch to planets.

Will the terrain system play into colonization or colony cost at all?  It might also be a good way of assigning trade goods. For example, a Jungle planet could have medicinal plants, exotic animals, w/e. 

P.S. - are 'Forested Rift Valley' etc. supposed to have a lower tectonics minimum than regular rift valleys?
