So which is better in your opinion? The 2nd edition or the 3rd?
The big differences are probably the TI theme on the 2nd and the toonish theme on the 3rd, some revised alien powers on the 3rd. All ships from the same class have similar specs on the 3rd, some new cards on the 3rd and omission of the ship upgrades from the 2nd, and of course the minesweeper and asteroid fields on the 3rd. So which one is better?
