Looking at FB2, page 34 "The Phalon Conglomerate is a lose, highly
balkanised federation of individual worlds..." and goes on in that light
- they co-operate against an extrenal threat, but if that threat were to
diminish (say the human/Kra'Vak war cools down, due to, say, the KV
turning the human core worlds to slag with mile-long hyper-mass drivers
:-) or the KV war effort loosing momentum due to internal strife as
mentioned elsewhere, or the Sa'Vasku killing everyone, or the SV
failing to kill everyone so the humans & KV join forces and turn on
them, etc. and ad infinitum - I think I swiped most of these ideas
from B5 :-), then the old rivalries would re-surface...

Hmm... gotta think about this!
