Behind the Scenes
According the novel Southern Cross, a journal by S. J. Fischer titled "Legion of Light: A History of the Army of the Southern Cross" indicates the importance and power of the GMP was attributable to the near feudal nature of Earth society in that time. The Global Military Police served as the only truly worldwide law enforcement agency that provided a check and balance on those who had access to Robotechnology. Thus, they had their own war machinery, combat forces and an intelligence network. Careers in the GMP provided a quick road to advancement though recruits had to say goodbye to outside friendships as such amenities would no longer exist for them.
