Crusader Industries is a human spacecraft and spacecraft component manufacturer. One of four corporations in the United Empire of Earth to own a planet, Crusader Industries designs and constructs its spacecraft in the upper atmosphere of Crusader, while the corporation and its employee-inhabitants reside on Orison, a latticework of floating colony platforms. A producer of large commercial vessels, among its more popular products is the Genesis Starliner, a luxury transport operated by civilian passenger lines across the galaxy. Crusader also produces a number of military support ships, including the M2 Hercules military transport and the Mercury Star Runner.
In 2799, August Dunlow, an anti-Messer political activist, acquired a controlling stake in the small shuttle manufacturer Seraphim Systems located in Tram. Dunlow rebranded the company as Crusader Industries, with the goal of generating significant profits that could be donated to fund charitable causes. As CEO, Dunlow expanded Crusader into producing large transport ships, landing government contracts and becoming a prominent aerospace manufacturer across the UEE. He instituted an ongoing policy of donating a portion of profits to charity, which has continued after Dunlow's retirement in 2846.
Expansion under Caplan
In 2863, starliner designer Kelly Caplan took over as CEO and purchased the gas giant Crusader in Stanton as a new consolidated headquarters. This saved substantial costs in ship construction. Caplan encouraged other companies to establish outposts on the gas giant's three moons, though with mixed success due to onerous rules. Under Caplan, Crusader became the primary funder of the youth homeless shelter Angeli's Angels, which had helped Dunlow earlier in life.
In recent years, Crusader has struggled to provide security across its sector of the Stanton system. Critics have suggested reducing charitable donations to bolster security funds. An independent watchdog revealed Crusader had under-reported crime rates, prompting revised protocols. However, effectively policing its extensive holdings has remained expensive. Despite these challenges, Crusader maintains its commitment to charitable work.
While travelling within Crusader Industries governed space, be mindful that you are subject to not only UEE laws but to the local jurisdictional laws as well. If you violate local laws, even unknowingly, you may be expelled, fined, arrested, or imprisoned.
Just like UEE Military and Advocacy agents, local security personnel can require you to submit to identification scans to establish your identity, conduct searches of your person and vessel, and detain you with due cause. Always obey the directives of authorized security personnel.
Be sure to familiarize yourself with the jurisdiction's criminal activities and comport yourself accordingly.
