I beg to differ. Difficulty is 6, times with number of players on the
Bridge gives the TPs. All players but you have their station switches
set to Bridge when the journey starts. But only active players have a
station switch in the first place, as defined in the previous rule.
Does the wording "the Station switches of all other players are
flipped to Bridge" in R2299 imply that all such players have a station
switch, and define them such if they don't otherwise? If it does, then
it would be at conflict with R2298 that says "Station is a switch
possessed by all active players". And R2298 is lower numbered. If I'm
correct, the number of players on the Bridge was 9 and you had 54
Threat Points, meaning you have created an Asteroid and Force Field a
but not having enough points to go on after that.

I CFJ ((comex has created five threats)), submitting this message up
to now as caller's arguments for FALSE.

Judge Wooble's Arguments:

Rule 2298 defines Station as a switch possessed only by active
players.  By R2162(a), no other entity can possess such a switch; the
switch can't be implicitly created by R2299's assertion that it is
flipped.  As there were only 9 active players on the Bridge when the
Journey began, H. Enemy comex had only 54 threat points to spend; e
successfully created 2 threats for 45 TPs, and subsequently failed to
create any more threats as each purported creation cost more than 9
TP.  I judge FALSE.
