Question about Star Trek Catan If I use Pavel Chekov to move the Klingon battle cruiser to the asteroid field, do I receive 1 resource even though I don't have an outpost or starbase bordering the planet?

Answer

It doesn't matter whether you or other players have an outpost or starbase there. You receive the resource because the Klingon battle cruiser disappears and keeps itself busy counting asteroids until the next "7" is rolled.
