    You a funny man. Your faction just changed from the second planetary power to the fourth one after taking one look at our small raiding force. Why would we waste resources on you?

    One or eight colony pods per turn, they wouldn't have been able to escape the Spartan blitz attacks no matter what,

    Build colony pods.

    when germany invaded russia in 41 they moved thousands of people and evacuated huge areas to counter the german assault. i wont go into the details,but you can look it up if you so desire

    smac has no such quick moving evacuation feature,and therefore the only way to represent this in-game is to raze cities

    perhaps some spartans are simply bitter at losing their prize?

    That's a different way of putting it I see how it happened now.

    knock, knock
    "How can I help you officer?"
    "Sir, you are dismissed." ZAP
    ...
    knock, knock

    Similarly, it might seem as though our forces attacked yours in Mart Pact, but certainly not. The game mechanics are not at all representative here. What actually happened was that we dismantled their weapons and bought them all ice cream. Most of them now enjoy a part time internship on Pholus moon as hat makers.

    There was a reason to do so, but I understand that from your perspective it may be hard to see it at first.
    Well, regardless of whether we can see a reason for your actions or not, it will be interesting to read the private forums after this game is over I mark these dates down for future reference.

    Ah, you mean that strategic planning is useful? I consider this obvious.
    No no, I mean that people are useful. Instead of killing your citizens, you can make them do other stuff. Like ... work. Or give you influence in the planetary elections, or maybe sending them off to war. This is why Sparta prefers to keep our people alive.

    Ha! I remember what that said, and I will now use it to my personal advantage to climb the Spartan ranks. Look out Maniac and Googlie!
    Yeah, right, like the Crypteia wouldn't have arecord.

    Re the infiltration, the gain of this single operation for Spartan Federation according to our analysis is very large. And the implications will haunt whole Chiron. Several Data Angel bases can hardly be compared to what will come in the future.

    And I am sure your infrastructure department can explain you better all the benifits of this "people"

    Well, eliminating prominent military leaders wouldn't lessen the threat on you. In fact, I'm sure you wouldn't like at all to see what the Ministry of Infrastructure could do if they'd take over!
