God, from the mount of Sinai, whose gray top Shall tremble, he descending, will himself, In thunder, lightning, and loud trumpets' sound, Ordain them laws.

Orbital Defense Pod is a base facility in Alpha Centauri.

Effect[ | ]

Each undeployed Orbital Defense Pod has a 50% chance to prevent a Planet Buster, Fungal, or Tectonic attack against any of your bases
Defense Pods may only deploy once per turn; when no undeployed Pods remain, a Planet Buster can only be stopped by sacrificing one of the already-deployed Pods
