Our company’s objectives are related to the field of Mining. The careers that find it, dig it, secure it, transport it and trade it. This would include careers in Logistics, base building and Repair to name a few.
Currently in 9 time zones. From New Zealand going East into Western Europe.
From the Fleet Admiral…
We are a corporation striving to be a Medium sized org in-game. Presently, Cig places a Medium sized org as between 11 and 49 people. We feel orgs over 500 players should be classified as large orgs as some orgs are in the thousands. As a Medium sized org the hope is for a couple hundred people. These numbers would be split amongst the European, American and Pacific time zones.
That tells you what we want to be…what about who we are?
Presently we’re made up of people who wanted to join a org so when the game is ready, they’re good to go, we have a member who streams Star Citizen 5-6 times per week, we have members who play regularly and we have members who play other games in the meantime. While the game is still in Alpha, having people to compliment the members who are active is always a better thing. More over we would like to expand our European memberships so people across the pond can find more members to play with. I myself, have been to a few Bar Citizen events, both small and large. Other members have made it to such events as well. I feel that the effort going to an event that celebrates Star Citizen is really worth your time and really allows people to soak in your opinions, suggestions and to listen to theirs.
Have a great day!
The above quote happened on Earth in a time before flight was achieved. But the embodiment of those words ring true for every generation of men, women, other genders, or even other species that find their true purpose in life, up in the stars. Individuals who push the limits of exploration for themselves while teaching the known Universe something new each day.
That’s a lot to think about…but let’s keep things simple for the time being.—-
This Corporation is currently designed as a Medium sized Unit that is Pro UEE, so we’re striving to keep things professional while keeping things social and friendly. While larger Orgs try to increase their ranks into 5,000+ members to wage all out wars. We take your characters lives very seriously and won’t jeopardize them on a whim to see what would be really cool this week. We’re trying to create a sense of camaraderie for our members, while not trying to pick fights…but like Chess, sometimes the best moves are those that wait for their opponent to expose a weakness.
Now, there are countless videos out there in the web that show you how to open a door or pick up a box…but doing things in Star Citizen, much like in real life is not done by watching countless videos or by reading an Org manual that would put any normal librarian to sleep. It’s done by placing yourself in a situation to do it yourself and by practicing it. It is the goal of this organization to train people who ask to be trained one-on-one. That’s right. We want people who would like to mentor other players. While we don’t dictate you take any training at all. We do expect you to be proficient, patient and can communicate well with others. You see…I, we…realize that you are the current embodiment of a family chain thousands of generations long. Those who came before in life and progressed through life with great difficulty. For that reason, we’ll assume your brain works.
Science Fiction in general is about more than just shooting things up. It’s about growing. It’s about perseverance. And it’s about family….or those one would include as family. For instance Star Trek had Kirk complaining to Bones about how one deals with getting old. How about Picard dealing with the loss of Data who was not just a crewman but much like a son…. And yes, we watched Wesley (hated his character) finding his own direction in life while on the flip end, we see Kirk’s friend…truly being “ the most human” person he’d found in his travels.
What if we could create something that was just half that in SC?
I think that’s a pretty cool goal….
CEO & Fleet Admiral
Interstellar Exploration & Heavy Industries Inc.
– Those who join are reminded to check Spectrum org site for Discord link –
This Corporation has been formed with the intent of fulfilling a function which allows greater results than any one ship or crew could accomplish on their own. The purpose of this company is to discover mineral locations, mine those locations and transport the minerals to market. We will also provide in-house security and pursue discoveries in engineering and space.
This company’s structure will focus on the following Divisions.
The Mining division will mine minerals and gas deposits for the benefit of the Corporation. In a best case scenario, our Exploration teams will discover locations that satisfy the needs of the Mining Division. This would negate the need to pay another firm for information regarding suitable locations… If we feel an area can be sold off after a time period to a broker so our mining can move elsewhere, that would be financially advantageous.
Transport of supplies and mined minerals will be pursued. Normal cargo missions aside from mining operations will also be done to provide different streams of funding. This division also provides fuel transportation to ensure operations run smoothly. Low tier cargo hauls will be primarily to acclimate new members to the corporation which allows the company time to decide if we want to keep the new recruit…
This division will be used for the protection of ships, mining locations and other assets.
For the Exploration of systems which will direct the company to successful locations. This information can be used for either IE Inc. itself, or it could be sold to information brokers depending upon the size and type of find while gathering data.
For the Engineering Brigade…these member locations will be restricted to even the overall org, and their data can be useful for everything from standard nav studies, Rich Asteroid Fields to jump point discoveries. Microscopy, zero gravity experiments and biological studies can also be performed.
Members will try to adhere to appropriate protocol while with the company. No unwarranted engagement shall take place that will endanger the crew, ship or mission unless it’s necessary. To disregard this, could place mission in jeopardy.

It is understood that certain new members may have more added value than most new recruits. Taking that into consideration, new members may be field promoted due to that fact. For instance…a new member may have acquired a Polaris Corvette which would be a vital ship to the organization. Unlike some Orgs who want complete control of their ship, we want that owner to take pride that they’re in our Organization and that we here at IEINC acknowledge and are thankful for the use of their ship(s) and the hard work they do for the Corporation. That being said, a larger ship owner shouldn’t be placed into a Recruit or Ensign role but at least a Lieutenant or possibly a Lt. Commander rank. An inexperienced person directing others will have their rank appropriately adjusted in those rare occasions. The Vice-Admiral or another senior rank would mentor and instruct these chosen candidates in how to interact with organizational members and how the workings of the organization are on a level that seems fitting to their position and length of service. *see “Need-to-Know” below under Officers.
The following ships show example of automatic field promotions.
- Javelin Class Destroyer – Lt. Commander
- Idris Class Frigate – Lt. Commander
- Hull E – Lt. Commander
- Endeavor Research Platform – Lieutenant
- Hull D – Lieutenant
- Orion Mining Platform – Lieutenant
Officers will be added as soon as deemed appropriate. (EXAMPLE – the necessity of needing 7-10 Admirals isn’t likely early on.) Furthermore, this corporation will be set up using a Need to Know basis. Meaning, officers will be granted further knowledge based upon rank into the operations than say a recruit/ensign would have. This ensures people with command decisions have the information they need to do the job right but also helps ensure that espionage can be curtailed to a certain degree. New members with Field Promotions will be monitored for appropriate behavior for the rank they hold.
– Communications (VERY IMPORTANT)
While Spectrum is usable right now, the majority of communications is done via Discord. Once you have been approved for full membership or affiliate status, check the Org Spectrum site under “***Communications *** for the current link to it.
It is within the authority of this Charter, that Amendments will be needed as time dictates upon the release of Star Citizen. Amendments shall be brought forth by an Officer vote ONLY, but any member may request an officer to take up the issue if the officer feels it’s appropriate.
- End of Charter -
All members should routinely check the Org Spectrum page for access to the current 9 Chat Lobbies, 14 Forums, along with the link to the org Discord found under the FORUM – “Communications / Hardware & Software”.
