Lee wins in 5 turns (click the image for a bigger version)
This puzzle is inspired by the other Homeworlds puzzles introduced by @Destructible Lemon. You should explain how Lee (the player on the left side) can beat Ray (the player on the right side) in 5 turns. Ray will of course try to prevent this if he can.
The Homeworlds rules can be found here.
Pieces pointing from left to right are Lees ships.
Pieces pointing from right to left are Rays ships.
Pieces pointing upwards are stars.
