The NovaRiders were an outlaw group that entered notoriety in the early 2500s when they became the first known people to steal a spacecraft mid-flight. During this time, ships were sold at such a high cost that they were primarily owned by the wealthy, and were commonly stolen at stations and ports. The gang was known for their practice of playing loud thrash metal music on all communication frequencies in order to prevent their targets from calling for help. The group was disbanded by the military in 2517, but formed again a few years later, utilizing the same techniques. Since then, it has formed and dissolved again multiple times.
