Sapient is an alien with a noncombat (for her own combats, that is) power that grows with time. Thus, patience and conservative play is recommended. The longer the game goes on the more powerful Sapient becomes.
Sapient's power is the power to Ally. When she is an Ally, she adds experience points to the main alien's attack total in a way similar to how the Warrior adds points to himself.
Gains a token for each win as an ally; gains a token per ship for each ship lost as an ally; adds tokens to total as an ally
Wild: As ally, add one to total for each of your home colonies
Super: Add double tokens when adding tokens to sheet
When you are an ally in an encounter, if your side wins you gain 1 wisdom point. If your side loses you gain a wisdom point for each of your ships committed. Starting at zero, a running total of your points will be kept throughout the game. Wisdom points are accumulated by you at the end of the encounter. Previously accumulated wisdom points are added your side of the main alien's total when you are an ally.
You will see your wisdom points by your Sapient name.
Brewed in the cauldron of a gorgeous planet circling a robust star in a spectacular galaxy, the Sapient race evolved a unique intelligent design which enabled them to genetically pass accumulated wisdom to the next generation. Their culture thus became dominated by those who combined beauty with brilliance. Thus endowed, they spawned the most fascinating and entertaining progeny who became all but irresistible to the unsuspecting and hapless riffraff they encountered. Now they turn their alluring essence outward, secure in the knowledge that all life forms will be charmed into desiring them as allies.
