History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

The company dates back to the period immediately following the Civil War, when Empress Arbellatra resettled many nobles - both supporters and rivals - on new border fiefs.

  • In 700, a group of these nobles pooled their resources to buy bankrupt fledgling lines, merging them to form GeDeCo.

Economic historians credit GeDeCo with raising the frontier's tech levels to the "average stellar" range.

  • This continuing goal of technological dispersion is supported by a variety of planetary industries that manufacture goods for offworld export.
