I recently played some Horizon matches and enjoyed the galactic council feature. While playing I noticed a strange behavior:
Galactic council is supposed to gather when all races have met each other (or more precise: When the player has met all races). However, if the player get's knowledge of other races by intelligence (shared information treaty), the game thinks the player knows all races and launches the Council session.
I'd expected that the player has to establish contact first and that it is not sufficient to just know there are other races, so I'm reporting this as a bug
