Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth and Sid Meier's Starships have some sort of cross-game connectivity. As I understand it, new features in either game can be unlocked in the other game by playing the games and connecting both to a my2K account. What are these unlockable features, and what is required to unlock them?

There are two aspects to this question.

What Beyond Earth can unlock in Starships. Taken from this wiki page. Note that the hybrid affinities are strictly better than their regular alternatives, and two hybrid pairs (e.g. Purity/Harmony and Harmony/Purity) have no functional differences.

Planet Type Unlocks Winning a game of Civ:BE with each ending will unlock each of these.

Planet Type - Nirvana: +5% Crew Morale (Unlocked by Harmony victory)

Planet Type - Xanadu: +10% Science (Unlocked by Purity victory)

Planet Type - Earth: +10% Metal (Unlocked by Supremacy victory)

Planet Type - Observatory: Open Communications with all AI leaders (Unlocked by Contact Victory)

Hybrid Affinity Unlocks* You need to reach Rank 7 of each main affinity and 3 of a second affinity to unlock the Hybrid Affinity groups (do not need to win, unlocked immediately)

Hybrid Affinity - Supremacy/Harmony: Start the game with one random Wonder already built and your starship repair costs are reduced by 50%.

Hybrid Affinity - Supremacy/Purity: Start the game with one random Wonder already built and receive doubled resources from completing missions.

Hybrid Affinity - Purity/Harmony: Receive doubled resources from completing missions and your starship repair costs are reduced by 50%.

Hybrid Affinity - Purity/Supremacy: Receive doubled resources from completing missions and start the game with one random Wonder already built.

Hybrid Affinity - Harmony/Supremacy: Your starship repair costs are reduced by 50% and start the game with one random Wonder already built.

Hybrid Affinity - Harmony/Purity: Your starship repair costs are reduced by 50% and receive doubled resources from completing missions.

Mission Unlocks

Mission - New Jerusalem: Protect the religious refugees. Unlocked by completing the Quest "FOUND AN OUTPOST."

Mission - Assembly Required: Protect the cargo transports. Unlocked by completing the Quest "GIFTS FROM HOME."

*Note that the hybrid affinities are listed requiring 3 points in the second affinity, but some sources suggest it has to be 4
