This is where spies earn their keep. Spies have two different actions they can take:
Use a Spy to observe-4 1D6 chits in opponents reserve pile.

Use a Spy to observe-4 an enemy unit. If successful,
The controlling player must declare that units' movement orders immediately.
All players write down movement orders for all of their units.
A unit can move to any world on the map from any other world.

Players reveal their orders.
Example Order: Move Spy#3 to Cassiopia.
Players move their units. All movement is considered simultaneous.
Rebels and Bases do not move (Rebel Leaders may move).
Troops can only move if a Star cruiser transports them.
Example Order: Move Star cruiser #1 and Troops#2 to planet Jungla.
Units not given written orders do not move.
Every enemy personality trying to get on or off a blockaded world must roll D6.
On a roll of 1-2 they are destroyed.
Conduct all the actions on one planet before moving to the next.

Players with units on the World take turns.
In a turn, one unit takes one action.
The Player with more units in the System goes first.
Blockading Cruisers may not do any further actions.
