ThorGate corporation specializes in energy production, giving them a special niche in the terraforming process. If you want a more general approach focused on science, Inventrix is there for you:
The science tag will make it easier to play some high-tech cards, like Lightning Harvest, and the special effect of Inventrix will make it easier to play other cards with requirements. Natural Preserve, for example, canbe played even if oxygen is up to 6%. Many biological (and other) projects require some terraforming to be done before being viable. With Inventrix, the requirements are significantly lower. On top of that, Inventrix starts the game by drawing 3 extra cards, representing their wealth of ideas.
