A planet which has one upgrade into each of: Defense (Blue), Range (Gold) and Speed (Purple)
This planet has an active “Pyramid” artifact. Which gives it a bonus 10% (1.1x) increase to Energy Capacity — among other bonuses. This can be seen by looking across from the single lightening bolt icon, which represents energy capacity.
This planet has a moon granting it 2x Energy Capacity. This can be seen in the planets information pane, where a green “x2” is positioned by the single lightening bolt icon.

Generation

This celestial body has a Lava Monolith artifact, which gives a bonus 15% to its Energy Generation — this can be seen by looking across from the double lightening bolt icon, which represents energy generation.
This planet got very lucky — it has a moon for both 2x Energy Generation (Green) AND 2x Energy Capacity (Grey).
