In the minds of
most spacefarers, the words "Colonial Defense
conjure images of tough as nails elite soldiers with the skills and the
training to get the job done. Known colloquially as The CDF, these
rapid response troopers are collected from the best candidates from
dozens of different worlds. Clad in advanced armor and armed with the
latest in pulse-weaponry, the CDF are only called in whenever the
stakes are high or when things look hopeless. They often form the first
line of defense on the frontiers of colonized space. If
humans are threatened, the Colonial marines are always ready to stand
in the gap.
As CDF platoons are made up of soldiers from diverse worlds
disparate cultures, it takes strong leadership to get them coordinated
like a well-oiled machine. CDF Officers are known for their combination
of harsh discipline and keen insight into the psyche of their troops.
Being a member of the CDF means putting your life on the line on a
daily basis, frequently while many light-years from home. It takes a
strong will to handle that kind of job. Thereâ€™s a reason the CDF are
considered the best.
One of the most decorated CDF rapid response teams is the A-86
Stompers". During the Harook Wars, they were instrumental in liberating
Persus IV. Harook forces had isolated and pinned down the Kurgan forces
originally sent in. Under the cover of a meteor shower, CDF Gunnery
Sergeant Apollo Mathews lead a small platoon of landers behind enemy
lines and sabotaged the power generators at the Harook base. The
resulting chaos cost Mathews an arm but it also gave the Harook enough
of a distraction for the Kurgan to launch a counter-attack. The
heavily-demoralized defenders fled. With the beachhead at Persus IV
abandoned, the Harook no longer had a foothold in Federated space. The
A-86 "Bug Stompers" essentially turned the tide in the Harook Wars.
