Esperia Incorporation is a Human spacecraft manufacturer that adapts, reproduces, and sells existing xeno spacecraft and weapon designs. The company was founded in 2873 by Jovi and Theo Ingstrom, brothers interested in preserving spacecraft-building history. Apart from manufacturing alien vessels, the company also funds several xenoarchaeology research grants through the University of Rhetor. The current CEO of Esperia is Charlotte Hussion. The company is headquartered in Kutaram, Terra, Terra. The United Empire of Earth Navy (UEEN) makes use of Esperia's replica spacecraft for testing and for aggressor training their combat pilots.
Esperia has always stayed true to the original experience of the ship; that was the tenet established by the lngstrom brothers when Esperia first branched into ship reproduction. Esperia's astroengineers are not allowed to diverge from the original construction method when it changes the experience of the ship, even though ship construction techniques might have made significant advances in efficiency, safety, and aesthetics since the time that the original design was first introduced.
Esperia began with the reproduction of the Prowler after an original Tevarin Prowler ship were found on the abandoned planet Kabal III in 2941. Esperia were contracted by the UEE to assess the technology and reproduction of it with newer technology.
Ship schematics archive
Esperia has a digital archive dedicated for archiving original ship blueprints of spaceships due to the founders' obsession with them.
The lngstrom Fellowship selects eight recipients a year for their work in the advancement in the field of xenoarchaeology.
Esperia was started by Jovi and Theo lngstrom, two brothers who were obsessed with spaceflight while growing up on Terra. As they tried to learn all' they could, these two brothers realized that only a fraction of ship designs managed to be passed down through the centuries. While there were many ships that never saw production runs, that didn't mean that there weren't any kernels of good ideas in the designs. Created in 2873, Esperia was initially conceived as a repository for these lost ship blueprints, in the hopes that current ship engineers could be inspired by the missteps of the past. The business exploded, and it wasn't long before the brothers decided to try and build their first ship based off one of the long lost designs.
Since then, Esperia has expanded its manufacturing arm to build ships not only for private collectors, but for military training exercises. It provided xeno-spacecraft reproductions for the UEE military.
Conflict with Vanduul
"The Vanduul War is not some distant threat, to paraphrase Admiral Bishop: it is at our door. Vega. Now Oberon. Who knows what system could be struck next? Citizens and civilians need to be able to protect themselves against the Vanduul, and they need to be able to do it now before it's too late. I am thrilled that Esperia has the ability to facilitate this important effort. These Blade light fighters are not only effective defensive tools, but more importantly, they are ready and available for purchase today."

Esperia has promised to donate a large percentage of it's Blade sales to the UEEN Veteran Relief Fund after the attack on Vega II.
