Stars Without Numbers: Out There!
The Burleson Cooperative is an up and coming corporation specializing in dangerous exploration and artifact recovery. They have mapped a number of star systems and found various pre-tech artifacts which they either keep for themselves or sell to the highest bidder. Most of the Burleson Cooperative members come from a military background of some sort, though they also have a number of bureaucrats and nobles who look after the day to day administration. Their head office is currently located aboard The Appropriate Response above the tundra world Clytie, in the Majid system.
