“Diplomats are negotiators and problem solvers. Peace will come to the galaxy only through open communication between species.”
- - In-game description
Computer-controlled alien species with this archetype are very easy to ally and are much easier than any other archetype empires, except Traders, who are also friendly from the start. Diplomats make great allies since they generally do not attack other empires unless when paid to do so, unlike other computer controlled archetypes which can attack other empires allied to the player. Diplomat species are also fast colonizers and can reach empire level 5 in less than an hour. Despite their fast colonization, their star systems usually have a T-score of 0 so they are still vulnerable to empires that are specially suited for combat. Diplomat empires have a Grand Council for a government, which is often mentioned in communication.
Diplomat Unique Power Edit
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 that you own, all enemy ships will be disabled, not your own turrets or ships)
Gaining The Diplomat Archetype Edit
Through Evolution Edit
The Diplomat archetype is awarded to species that gains an equal number of green and blue cards.

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: You may not make 5 alliances, and then automatically complete the mission upon its acceptance. You must accept and pay for the mission first, followed by forging five new alliances.
Diplomat's Philosophy Edit
"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."
CPU Diplomats act similarly to Ecologists and Shamans.
The Diplomats rare treasures are the Scrolls of Order. The combined value of the Scrolls of Order is $450,000. However, if you have all of them in your cargo hold at the same time, the set will sell for $4,500,000 instead.

- Some part of a Diplomat's dialog sounds like normal English words. For example: When a Diplomat empire has declared war on yours they sometimes will say "VANISH? I WON'T VANISH! NO NO NO NO! / I'm Zufali." Or another, when they start saying something that sounds like "Meelish kehn, hahb e nahb nahb", then it sounds like they are saying "Hahb e nahb Fought? Not!" (The english sounding dialog is "Fought" and "Not".) One of the parts of dialog after selling them something sounds like "Hahahaha! What'd he do?"
- When doing the archetype changing mission, Diplomats will say it is galactic policy to only have one ability at a time, even though with Galactic Adventures you can have up to three.
