How does the subtitle "The Build Imperative", or "Imperative: Build" strike you?

Build is key, as that's a SMAC concept something besides imperative would be fine, though I was recalling the game referring to the  base govenor priorities that way.  Help me out with wording - how does it refer to the tech categories?

Right.  It doen't have to be imperative, although that means a compulsion as well as an order, but we need the right phrase - [something] Build, or Build [something]

Okydoke; of course we're going to get a lot of "Modders Forum: raf is your King" suggestions, but maybe they'll at least be funny...

Hopefully, everyone will also pay a serious suggestion toll, by making one...

I just noticed that in alphax.txt, they are listed under the line "#MANDATE".

How about "Mandate: Build" as the subtitle?

In the great commons at Gaia's Landing we have a tall and particularly beautiful stand of white pine, planted at the time of the first colonies. It represents our promise to the people, and to Planet itself, never to repeat the tragedy of Earth.
