On the Verge
Original Allegiance: Starmech Collective
Once a proud Starmech colony in the Verge, the Long Silence treated them fairly well. When the ships from Starmech stopped arriving in 2345, it took only a few years for them to use their technological advantage. With the arrival of a single Starmech ship, the Augustine in 2405, proved to be a knowledge windfall. It also provided them with the strongest military vessel in the verge. This wasn’t to last, the discovery of an alien artifact in 2445, and it’s attempted activation cause the Augustine to be blown in to a billion pieces.
With the last remnant of official Starmech powerstructure gone, Tendril’s power went to the defacto business conglomorates on Alaundril, being led by Ion Industries. With it’s control of one of the few functioning Drivesat relay’s, and as the first stop in the Verge from Old Space, Tendril’s place in the Verge is quite set. With the recent news of Thorn Industries new shipyards, those in Tendril’s shipyards are wary.
