"Diplomats are negotiators and problem solvers. Peace will come to the galaxy only through open communication between species."
Diplomat Unique PowerEdit
The Diplomat acquires the Static Cling unique ability. Static Cling can be used to temporarily disable all ships and turrets on an enemy planet. (Note: If you use it on a planet you own all enemy ships will be disabled, not your own turrets or ships)
Gaining The Diplomat ArchetypeEdit
First you must ally with an empire following this philosophy with a strength factor of 4 or 5, then you may request to become 'like' them from the mission interface. After paying §5,000,000, the mission given is to form 5 new alliances. Upon completion return to claim your reward and you will change your philosophy and associated archetype, losing your old superpower and gaining the Diplomat's Static Cling power.
Note that you may not make 5 alliances, and then automatically complete the mission upon its acceptance. You must accept and pay for the mission first, THEN make 5 new alliances.
"We, the Diplomat Empire follow the Philosophy of Order. Our councils keep the Harmony and update all the forms and Galactic Calendars. It's the way of measurable progress. Without Order, the garbage keeps piling up.
Speaking of which, we have Static Cling Super-Technology. We use this to halt the turrets of disorderly cities anywhere, so we can negotiate them into an alliance... And make sure the forms get filed on time, in triplicate."
When encountered, Diplomats speak with a smooth, polite, echoing female voice.
