Event: Foreign Relations Failed Alliance

Dec 5, 2015
How does the Failed Alliance event work in the Foreign Relations event box? Does it affect alliance between two alien factions?

At 31:14 in the video below, the Failed Alliance event occurred, but Devin determined that it applies to an alliance between the player and an alien faction. I can't find anything in the rules (pdf word search) that mentions alliance between player and alien faction. I know the player can establish a diplomatic embassy with an alien race, but the rules say nothing about an alliance between player and alien.

Kent Wa,
It was discovered that rule was left out but after conferring with Nathan

"The Failed Alliance event should break an Alliance between two Alien factions. Basically it moves a marker back to the neutral position, and you get to choose which one."
