When humans first colonized the Outer Reach, three massive trade conglomerates moved with them, establishing their assets in a far corner, away from Way Stations and other colonies. Although this made transportation far more expensive, it allowed for much greater privacy and a chance to spread their various departments over suitable nearby planets. Together, these three corporations, Hark Williams, Melcon, and Works Raptor, formed an enormous economic engine the purpose of which was to focus all of its money, influence, and efforts upon creating more impressive and expensive ways one sentient being could kill another. Although they were far removed from other human colonies, this commercial enclave was still under the jurisdiction of Earth. As the oldest colonies began to feel the pressure of expanding populations and exhausting resources, taxes, tariffs, and government oversight in the Outer Reach were more and more burdensome. First the Satellite Charter and then the Terran Commonwealth interfered with the continuing business plans of the corporations. Eventually, the other colonies within the Reach rebelled. The resulting oppression was intolerable for business. Attempting to police the restive populations of the Outer Reach, Terra found itself over-extended in every sense. The financial and physical burdens, not to mention damage to their reputation throughout the quadrant, were destroying the Commonwealth’s ability to lead humanity forward. Seeing their opportunity, the corporations approached the Commonwealth in secret with an offer they plainly could not refuse. For vast, undisclosed sums of money and the promise of colossal technology transfers, the Commonwealth released the corporations and all their systems, now referred to as the Directorate, from any future obligation or allegiance to Terra. It was the hope of the Commonwealth diplomats that this would in turn buy them a solid ally and a reserve of good will within the Reach. Sadly, they were mistaken on both counts.
