Ha! Luxury! I've never had more than 3 administrators.
None of the techs that promise more administrators actually deliver them (the descriptions don't seem to match the code, either). I always choose the malevolent option on the Outpost event just to gain the 5 extra administrators, but although the extra five admins get added to the administrators tally, they aren't immediately usable. To add insult to injury, I then find out that the malevolent part of the event actually occurs when I hit "Turn" and some rapscallion murders my five new administrators! It's like some sort of bait & switch scam. Sure, administrators are a misguided fix for a non-problem and getting rid of them altogether would be ideal, but this just seems downright cruel.
Even if this were the only problem with Retribution (and it's very much not), it's a game killer. Experience tells me that Stardock will eventually get GalCiv back on track, but from here it looks like they've got several weeks work ahead of them, at the very least.
