Stars Without Numbers: Out There!
The Striker Combine is a corporation centered around psitech. Various militaries have invested in the Striker Combine’s research projects, as many of their secret experiments focus on the potential use of psionics in espionage and assassination.
Dr. Rafwin sits on the board of directors and handles many of the military proposals, while enjoying the luxury of being able to cherry-pick only the projects that personally interest him.
While the Striker Combine itself is a neutral party, the majority of its laboratories are found on industrialized planets scattered throughout the Republic. Particularly sensitive projects may be carried out on less inhabited, out-of-the-way worlds.
