As The Force re-franchises for a new generation of potential Jedis, Good Game's Bajo and Hex dissect their first play of the game.

Go to Phobos before landing on Mars itself?  I have pushed this idea for twenty years and now some at NASA agree.  Not only is the larger moon far easier to reach and serve as an ideal research platform, it also has two advantages never mentioned in this article.  It can serve as a logistics hum where supplies can be pre-positioned and tended without complex orbital management.  It also might (some figure) be carbonaceous chondritic material, containing volatiles like water.  If these could be mined and stored and prepared, subsequent Mars landing missions would find all the water and rocket fuel they need, lowering both cost and risk by an order of magnitude.  http://www.popularmechanics.com/space/moon-mars/a17552/phobos-landing/
