I the Master of Orion 1, I have a couple thousand BCs in reserve, and I saw in the Planet menu I can transfer those to another planet.

What use is that? I'm not even sure I understand the difference between BCs and Production.

Also, where can I see the reserves of BCs I transferred to another planet?

I really appreciate ANY help! :)

What your production actually (errr) produces is BCs, so transferring BCs back to a planet simply gives a one-time bonus to that planet's production. You can transfer any amount to a planet, but the planet's PROD can not increase by more than double this way.

So, as an example that will hopefully answer your second question:

Say you're looking at your PLANETS tab and your number 1 planet, say Sol cause you're the humans, has a PROD (or production) of 400. If you transfer 200 BCs to it, its PROD will increase to 600 for that turn. If you were crazy you could toss 1500 at it. It would only increase by 400, to 800 for that turn. But it would apply the remainder over the subsequent turns until it was all spent. So PROD would be 800 over the first three turns, and 700 on the fourth.

Hope that helps.
Added BC is seen at "colonies" tab. Planets with BC boost would looks like 600(400) in example above - actual prod and native prod of a planet. And also transferred BC are subject of planet multiplyers, so its best to be used on Rich and Urich and artifact planets.
Great. Thanks guys!

Actually a good use is also to boost the production of poor and ultra poor planets so you can get them maxed out ASAP, because once they are researching the production penalty doesn't apply any more.

Well, while it work this way too.... but unlike rich and u-rich it wouldnt get doubled and tripled. If you would pour BC into urich planet and set it to "reserve" - youll get a 200% profit each turn (some people see it just as lame abuse tho). Same work good with arti planets, but only if you will research on them.
