The Scanner pane is your window on the universe, showing what you do and don't know. All the planets in the universe are displayed, along with every other object you know about. When you start the game, all the planets except your home world are displayed as dim gray specks. Once you visit an uninhabited planet, it turns white in the scanner, indicating that you have data on it. All players see the same map, from their own perspective. Learn about the universe by selecting objects and different views. You also assign waypoints for your fleets using the scanner, and can view fleet locations: those owned by you as well as any opponent fleets that your radar can detect.
