Damn last pick and too slow in submitting my poem, but since this was what I had probably wouldn't have made a difference.

Ok, since it's unlikely that D'rek will take Technology, we will. In the unlikely event she takes it, we'll take Leadership.
Edit; let me rephrase - well take Technology if available otherwise Leadership.

The only reason why she might take Tech is to be able to time her research of Gravity Drive: that's one of the ways in which she can reach Bereg/Lirta this round (before IH can research Cruiser II) and use its numbers next round.
However, there are other ways, even this early in the game.

I will leave you Technology. I will take Leadership.

As Tapper says, I was highly, highly considering taking Tech simply for the sake of ensuring I can get my tech early enough to use it (with only 2 infantry and no Action racial abilities it's hard to stall around waiting for strategy cards). But I will give it to you and hope that you use it early instead (and even without that I would think you'd want to play it early anyways to force other players to overspend on tech before they have trade goods to even out the cost).

Come to think of it, if you play the Tech strategy as your very first turn (and Trade isn't played turn 1) it prevents Winnu from getting Gravity Drive, thereby stopping them from getting to MR in round 1 with Logistics... (sorry Twelve!)

Given Gnaw picks up Technology, I will happily take Construction.

Well I was debating on grabbing all the nearby planets versus making a run for Rex. Though not sure how I can get gravity drive round 1 without first that blue tech planet. I couldn't get to Rex this round anyway as I had to pick my starting tech before I knew I was even speaker.
I don't know what I'm doing but it sounds good.

Ohhhhh what did you pick for start tech? Nvm I found it 2 pages back, Sarween Tools. Okay, yeah, so the only chance of MR in round 1 would be to get Centauri-Gral, then Diplomacy 2ry, then Tech 2ry for Gravity Drive, and then get a Flank Speed AC from Politics 2ry... pretty darn unlikely. Probably for the best anyway, since we'd have almost certainly stopped you. Winnu getting MR in round 1 is toos trong.

Nom's pick now, then Morgoth, then IH. With Diplo, Warfare, and Imperial remaining.
