Just making sure I understand this, if I wanted to build a facility, I have to have the datacard, and there's no other way I can build it, right? except for the basic ones the rules page lists taht everyone can build, correct?
It's necessary for now though. Why would people make/join mining groups if anyone could do it? Same with production. If you could pump out fighters from a factory, why would anyone go to a ship production group?
