Whatever it is the reason why the Ceph on the planet decide to invade the Earth or not or if they have any connection with the overhive that sent the Ceph Warship from the M33 galaxy is unknown.
On the holographic map of the Milky Way galaxy at the cutscene of Mission 6 of Crysis 3. It was showed several location of all spiral arms of the galaxy are marked with cubic-shape crosshairs. On the galactic map at bottom-left us an image displays the galaxy filled with red dots, indicating that the Milky Way is already under the Ceph's control.
Even worse as there are locations in satellite galaxies that marked with crosshairs and there is a map showing the Milky Way's satellite galaxies map with all the dwarf galaxies marked with blue spheres orbiting around the known galaxy, the image heavily suggests the Ceph is also in control of all Milky Way's satellite galaxies.
It is also presumed that it is a cold enviroment because the Cephs piloting the Troopers, Trooper Leaders, Trooper Guardians, Scouts, Orange Scouts, Hunters and Red Hunters within the sphere (which frozed everything in its radius, which means that they are adapted to survive to extremely cold temperatures, presumingly from their homeword.
