I like the Intrigue expansion, except I'm not thrilled with the Crisis feature. In three games I have twice had the space monster show up and each time I managed to not win the crisis and lost a planet. I find that the mechanism of dealing with the crisis, getting two screens each with three options, is rather off-putting compared to the rest of the detail in the game. I'd rather just play Intrigue without this feature but I can't seem to find a way to turn it off. Can this in fact be done, disabling the Crisis feature? If not, then it really ought to be made an option.
