ORPEC was born,
On humanity’s homeworld earth around the year 2880 with the hope to rekindle efforts to explore the solar system. The Organization was founded when the UEE was looking to reshape its image and reach out into further systems. Because of this willingness to show off a different side of the UEE many government contracts were awarded such as the contracts for the Chronos Constructions of 2872. The founders of ORPEC seeing a chance to extend the knowledge of humanity saw this as a chance to venture further into the stars and were awarded a contract for deep space exploration in 2881.From 2881 to 2884 ORPEC was key in funding the development of the CHARIOT engine developed by Dr. Russell Valam. After the engine exploded in its test bed the company began to slip into obscurity.
Little known to many, ORPEC’s Voyager division had already received a prototype of the engine for one of its RSI Constellation Aquilas, and would proceed to test it in an undisclosed location. The test was a disaster The initial explosion vaporized the flagship and all tertiary craft in its vicinity. All other observation craft due to an electromagnetic pulse were unable to leave the system or send out distress signals. In a matter of seconds, ORPEC’s exploration fleet was left floating dead in space. Some of the survivors were able to escape the blast using escape pods and landed on various uninhabited moons and planets, to this day they have not been found. Given the nature of the tragedy and their loss these individuals have been labeled as voidborn and are celebrated as early heroes for their sacrifices for human expansion. This was a devastating blow to exploration for the UEE and The Outer Rim Protection and Exploration Corporation with very little exploration taking place after this event. The public would not know about the failure until 2941 with the passing of the Historical Truth Act by the UEE. Due to this fact the Organization would continue to run in obscurity until in 2944 when the Organization once again began to push the agenda of exploration backed by more government funding and the newly founded Spartacus, Jove and Atlas divisions.
For many years ships had been going missing in the outer rim systems only to reappear without their cargo or crew. By 2947 it became clear that this was becoming more and more of an issue for PMC’s and Contractors in these systems. This crisis came to a height in 2948 when images surfaced of an ORPEC ship boarding multiple trading vessels in crusader. While the main corporate structure of ORPEC covered up for these allegations to this day ORPEC ships have been taking part in grey operations not sanctioned under UEE law.
How Do You Fit In ORPEC’s Next Historical Chapter?
In the year 2946 ORPEC began to hire outside of its corporate circle and began to bring more operators into the organization. With the creation of the Spartacus, Jove, and Atlas, the needs for new recruits continued to grow and does to this day.
As a new recruit, you are tasked with finding a career that now suits you in the organization. Are you an explorer, or do you think you want to transport goods? As our operation grows these opportunities multiply. Now with the addition of the private sector captains program, you can also be a captain in Voyager and atlas divisions, managing your own operation, your own crew and your own ship with the support of ORPEC’s infrastructure.
Throughout ORPEC’s history, the company has sought out connections with other organizations for trade commerce and protection. Because of our commitment to diplomacy in 2948 ORPEC opened our TIKOS branch which is dedicated to promoting co-operation and peaceful coexistence between organizations.
ORPEC As A Gaming Group
ORPEC was started by two Canadian friends at the end of 2015 and since then has grown into a multinational gaming community with roots in multiple games. As we grew we understood the awesome potential of this group and have worked hard to mold it into the group present today. Our home will always be amongst the stars but that has not stopped us from reaching out to other games as we grow.
From our inception, we have focused on delivering a respectful and fun place to play games for mature individuals. From our humble beginnings on skype to our now very active discord server we have made a commitment to delivering interesting gaming events and experiences to our members while achieving our goals in game. We have active and helpful staff who are always ready to answer questions and a multitude of veterans to help new players get started in the verse or in other games.

THE MIGHT OF THE OUTER RIM
ORPEC although a peace-loving corporation understands that not all players of the verse hold the same values.

Anyone with a combat focus, a willingness to learn and an attitude fit for team play will find this a welcome home amongst the stars protecting the people and shipments of the Outer Rim.
