Stupid newbie question: what is "The Star"? Is it a particular strategy, or is it just the opposition of Asia and Russia?

Does speed come with practice? I tried playing smaller unmixed fleets in my last game and I nearly didn't have enough time to place my silos (which would have been pretty embarrassing). I lost anyway. I should probably practice against the AI a bit. To a certain extent it does. I would say that wit...
