So the CEF was formed for those colonies that said, "Hey, your problems, not ours." And they did bring diplomats, but the CEF always prepped for conquest after diplomacy failed.
@Khell, Earth went through several decades of civil war in its own solar system. NEC won out. Then they decided they need the colonies to get the populace of Earth under control. Only problem. Earth abandoned the colonies. Most times, colonies left to their own devices a few hundred years might have a grudge where their descendants have survived without help from their mother planet. S
Neat and yet creepy all at the same time!
Yes, the frames other than the F6-16 are piloted by FLAILS.
So are F6-16 the only normal piloted frames? My understanding was that flail program made grels into organic computers. So are all the other frame types piloted in this manner?
When I condensed the CEF info to get it to fit on the one page with the miniatures, I picked the main points only. There are pages and pages of history in our books about what happened and why.

@Khell, and thank god they did. Can you imagine how boring this game would be if they went the diplomatic rout? I paint and bring my 100tv list consisting of painted 12mm diplomat models in suits and ties with various skills in diplomacy and rhetoric, you bring your "army" of the same. The board is essentially a miniature table with miniature chairs our "troops" sit at. Then we roll dice to see which faction does the best job negotiating a new trade treaty between Earth and Tera Nova. Yup that sounds exciting....
