[. . . ] At the end of the year, if you do nothing to change relations, the diplomatic scale will move back toward the neutral setting for both races. Negative Diplomatic Actions: · espionage · sabotage · excessive military buildup along borders · attacking a fleet · killing off planetary populations · using biological weapons against ANY race · possessing too many planets · previously broken treaties Positive Diplomatic Actions: · tribute · trading · non-aggression pacts and alliances · attacking a mutual enemy An accidental encounter over an uncontrolled star system will damage relations, but attacking an enemy colony almost certainly leads to war. Furthermore using biological weapons will make all races distrust you. Every time war is declared or a treaty is broken, a permanent diplomacy penalty is assigned to any future dealings. Therefore, if you consistently break treaties and attack an opponent, he will be very unwilling to form new treaties and will only accept trades which benefit him more than you. Non-aggression pacts and alliances do not immediately effect your diplomatic relations, but instead improve the relations as long as the treaty is enforced. Trade also improves relations, but not as much as a non-aggression pact or alliance. KLACKON workers are incredibly productive. BLACK WIDOW 39 DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS (CONT. ) DESTROYER Finally, there will come a time when one empire recognizes its superior position and will attempt to eliminate all weaker competitors to win the game. At this time no amount of tribute will prevent the enemy from attacking. Declarations of War: Once war has been declared, the enemy withdraws their ambassadors and existing treaties and trade agreements are broken. Until relations stabilize, the ambassadors will not return to even talk over peace agreements. You can increase your opponent's willingness to sue for peace by successfully attacking ships and destroying his colonies. On the other hand, if they are succeeding, they will not be eager to discuss peace. If neither side attacks for a while, relations will eventually stabilize, ambassadors will return and be willing to negotiate for peace. Starting Diplomatic Relations: When play begins, each race starts with a diplomacy rating that reflects their suspicions and prejudices concerning the other races in the game. Then, as the game goes and the diplomacy ratings change, relations will always gravitate back toward the starting diplomacy setting. Therefore, if you wish to remain allied with another race, you must continually perform positive diplomatic actions. The table below shows the starting diplomatic relations for each race. Note that the Humans in general are the most favoured, while everyone hates the Darloks.

As long as you are not actively engaged in a war with a race, you will be able to trade with them. By signing a trade treaty, you agree to exchange a specified amount each year, up to 25% of the lesser player's production total. Both players then receive a percentage return based on the number of years the treaty has been established. Since establishing trade requires an initial investment for organizing patrolled trade routes and establishing customs, your income from a trade treaty begins at ­30% of the treaty amount. [. . . ] They carry extremely heavy warheads capable of inflicting much more damage than their beam weapon and missile counterparts. Ships equipped with bombs each carry a supply sufficient for ten attacks. · Missiles and Torpedoes are seeking drones that track and follow enemy starships, detonating on contact. If the missile or torpedo hits, the full damage of the warhead is scored against the target. [. . . ]
