Empire Score
In Delta Quadrant: Horizons, your empire is given points for many things, such as researching technologies, or building a new building or ship. This score is used to rank your empire against all others in the galaxy, and give you a position on the galaxy scoreboard.

You can view your own score from the Headquarters Page , and you may view the scores of all empires in the galaxy from the Scores page .

At the end of the round, your score will be used to increase your all time score that can be found here. You can find more information about all time score here.

Players in first, second and third positions on the scoreboard will also win some GC as a prize at the end of the round. See Services page for details.

Increasing your score
There are many ways to increase your score, these are listed below:

Every time you research a technology, this will increase your score. The amount depends on the number of science points required for that technology. Any research that is incomplete, but that has some progress will also increase score.

For more information about research, see the Science page.

Note: Any research points that are not used each turn are wasted, and do not count towards your score.

Buildings and Ships
All of your buildings and ships count towards your score. The amount depends on the build cost of each item.

For more information, see the Buildings and Ships pages.

Note: If your ships or buildings are scrapped, sold, or destroyed, then you loose any score you had from them.

Also Note: Terraforming does not count as a building when score is calculated.

Empire Treasure
The amount of money in your empire treasury affects your score.

Planets and Population
All of your planets count towards your score. The amount received from each planet depends on its size, resource abundance, class and population.

For more information about planets, see the Planets page.

Note: Guardian planets are very valuable, and increase your score considerably more than normal planets.
