Summary0023343: Change the name of exogalactic strike to prevent confusion with extragalactic war units
DescriptionExo- and extra-, as prefixes, mean the same thing; exogalactic and extragalactic have the exact same meaning. This personally caused me confusion as a new player, as I thought that exogalactic strikes would contain extragalactic war units and was confused when they never showed up. Exogalactic strike, as a term, is not very descriptive of what the strikes actually are. A more self-explanatory term would be something along the lines of "Provoked Strike", "Targeted Strike", or "Reaction Strike". Alternatively, they could simply be called Exostrikes; dropping the "galactic" would also prevent mixups.

I like using Exostrike, then renaming "Extragalactic War Unit" to "Galactic War Unit". The notion is "These are the units used to attack a Galaxy". This should shorten both terms (which were real mouthfuls) and make it much harder to confuse them.
