The Terran Empire are on the prowl again. Now they are coming for you territory!
When scouting a territory, you just throw one of the probes out the loading dock of your ship and keep going to the next one.
It´s equiped with a container and a surrogate pod. That alllows you to check out hexes that you are waiting for to be up for grabs!
Just name the pod, and have a TU in the container and then just wait!
