History

Emerald Sky has been involved throughout the galaxy in both legitimate, and sometimes less than legitimate businesses. ES was born out of necessity, to solve a very real problem faced by the organizations founder, Dalamars, early on in his personal history.

The Beginning

Dalamars was part of a group of settlers tasked with creating a new outpost in a remote backwater system. Far from help, and relying on their own devices, this group struggled to accomplish its goal. Unfortunately for them, a gang of well equipped pirates began raiding the settlement and attempting to wrest control of the colony from the settlers. A resistance force was organized by a former member of the UEE military, along with several retired fighter pilots, but given the outdated nature of the equipment at hand it was a futile gesture. Something had to change.
Dalamars, already established as a successful transport captain, formed the company Emerald Sky Limited, to establish a trade run with core planets and get the equipment so desperately needed by the colonists. In addition to legitimate cargo, smuggling runs for weapons and other military hardware were organized to arm the resistance pilots with top of the line gear for their ships, and enable them to better establish a viable defense force for the colony. Emerald Sky quickly established itself with the resistance forces as an essential part of the colony defenses.

Today

Emerald Sky continues that tradition of service by remaining a competent deliverer of services. Our ethics drive our success. We continue to recruit like minded individuals to carry on our company traditions.

Manifesto

There is a theme to our existence. Honor and dedication. We are determined to both enjoy the universe, and make a positive mark on it. We represent the underdog, we help the downtrodden, and we have fun doing it. We look for things where others haven’t the patience to explore. We are curious, we are honest, and we are dedicated to one another. Above all this takes UEC. While we do engage in some charity work, ultimately we have to pay for it. Members of Emerald Sky have been known to bend the rules from time to time in order to get the job done. We draw the line at harming innocents, but if others stand in the way of us delivering on our commitments, we will find a way.

Our core focus is industry. This is a broad term as it covers the entire chain from exploration and discovery, to delivery of goods and services. In the end for us it comes down to a simple formula, if there is a need, we will figure out how to fill it. To that end we are equipped with a large number of vessels to get the job done. The makeup of our fleet is constantly changing with the requirements of our customers, but we have larger scale anchor ships to ensure we can maintain our core roles over time.

Our logistics experts have a long history of gathering, moving, and securing goods and passengers in a safe and efficient manner. Many of our pilots have been trained by the UEE Navy making them very efficient at a wide range of tasks. We protect your goods at all points of their journey, whether that be on the ground, or in the air. Navy Logistics are some of the most complicated humanity has ever dealt with, particularly during times of conflict. Our specialists have brought this experience to the private sector. In many cases, through connections made with various UEE Military contractors, we use some of the same equipment to carry out our contracts.
