The Colonial Expeditionary Force

Many Terra Novans still carry bitter reminders of the CEF's last attempt to invade Terra Nova a generation before. The CEF returned as a conquering army, accepting nothing less than total submission. 

The CEF is the military force of the New Earth Commonwealth, a government from the remains of civilization on an Earth damaged by centuries of warfare and misuse. The average NEC citizen lives an unpleasant life in a domed city or, even worse, foraging in harsh wastelands. To these people, the government and the CEF are reaching out to take new worlds to settle and develop. The colony worlds are the best choice, as they are already prepared for human residents. The CEF has an ancient claim on all the colonies Earth helped develop centuries before, and the CEF is coming to collect.

Black Talon - Return to Cat's Eye
DP9-9034

Aftershocks and political fallout from the Interpolar War and the destruction of Peace River have left Terra Nova reeling. With Earth identified as the culprit, Terra Nova's governments have resolved to never to be caught off guard again and the Black Talon program was formed for the purpose of being sent off planet to recon Earth’s former colony worlds. Their first mission is the gate world Caprice, with its orbital fleet yards that were the staging grounds for the first attack on Terra Nova. They have the training and equipment with which to observe and sabotage Earth's Colonial Expeditionary Force (CEF) wherever opportunities arise and gain new allies whenever possible.

But it was not enough. The CEF is hell-bent on recapturing control of the colonies and has the largest fighting force in human history. War is coming, a war beyond anything that we've seen before. The fate of Terra Nova is held by an elite few, and they shall determine the fate of mankind.
