I know we get to vote on issues, but do those issues come up randomly or does there come a point when we can choose them?

they come up randomly, there will be further development on the diplomatic side to increase the dialogs.

I only vote for others to help an ally, or to send revenue to a weak AI next to an AI that bothers me.
You dont know how the AI's will vote. I was surprise a few times by the Yor that voted my way, as they were at war with another and wanted me to weaken it.

Thanks! I can't wait to see the upgrades.

Another suggestion, would be a counter telling you when the next vote was coming up.

ALso remember to give your enemies the Prison colony and Space Zoo, since they tend have undesired effects later on, hehe

Actually, there is a way to semi-control the UP Agenda but it can be tedious and time consuming to get the issue you are interested in voted on and, hopefully, get the decision you wanted on that issue.

I found that the only issue I really care about is getting all the ET races to share their tech with me through the voting of the United Planets. I came across this method of "unrandomizing" the issue: When the AI gives you the warning that the UP meets the following month SAVE THE GAME! You want to save the game with minimal other events going on on the following turn as they slow the process down (no constructors reaching bases, no wars if possible, etc.).

Hit the NEXT TURN button and voila you have your random issue to vote on. BUT IF IT IS NOT THE ONE I WANT I just reload the SAVED GAME and do it over and over again until the Tech Share issue gets voted on AND gets the decision I want. Sometimes this becomes impossible if one or two ET's have too much influence and override all other voters.

But when it works YOU HAVE EFFECTIVELY ELIMINATED THE RANDOMNESS OF THE UP ISSUES GETTING VOTED ON!!!

Just remember sometimes it takes a very, very, very many tries to get what you want (especially me as it seems the Tech Share issue is one of the least selected to vote upon).
