OK, I jsut tried it out and it's really quite like I thought:
I just started the scenario "orign of corruption" as a ZC player. You start on Hypori. I immediately took Mandalore, Ryloth, Bothawui, Kashyyk, Kuat, Honoghr and Nal Hutta (all of which were occupdied by another faction) within the first 2 minutes and without taking any losses using the following genius strategy:
-Put Silri, Urai Fen and Bossk in one fleet
-Move the fleet above a planet
-initialise a ground battle and press "auto-resolve"
You are free to try the same strategy (although perhaps I should claim it for myself due to its ingenuity, dunno....)
