At the start of a encounter, you may send one of your ships to the warp to lend your power to another player for the duration of the encounter. Until the end of the encounter, that player is considered to have your power instead of his or her own. The player may not refuse the loan of your power.
Super
Any player to whom you give an encounter card must play it in that encounter if he or she can.

Philanthropist is an alien that gives its cards away to other players.

StrategyEdit

Philanthropist seems like a non-power to new players, who would normally think that giving away cards is a hindrance. However, after a little while, one begins to see how Philanthropist can easily dump bad cards to get a new hand faster, while at the same time filling up others' hands with junk.

In addition, the Philanthropist can donate a good card to the player he is helping. This can be a good tactic to prevent the offensive player from obtaining the last foreign colony.
