Goota Mining Corporation (GMC)

Organization Name: Goota Mining Corporation (GMC)

Description:

The Goota Mining Corporation (GMC) is a Givin mining corporation which is based out of their home planet of Yag-dahl (L14). Their approach to gas mining is highly academic and research based, but yet is still grounded in actual mining experience and expertise.

Most of the management is Givin, although, those people who are sufficiently academic, math-minded, or unusually gifted in their field have also found a home here, and, once that happens, there is no end to the work available to them. Non-Givin personnel are more heavily vetted in case they are a corporate spy, rebel, or Imperial agent in order to try to keep the business running without complications.

They also employ Ugnaughts for their smaller size, hardiness, and mechanical aptitude; Verpine, for their attention to detail and their ability to communicate without technology which is especially useful in places where technology may not work so well. The rest of their work force fills up with the variable galactic races as needed. In any given work party there are: Givin supervisors and leads, at least 1 or 2 Verpine, a few Ugnaughts, and any other workers as needed.

Why is this Organization Useful or Interesting?
Who do they support and who do they oppose, and why? What do they hope to accomplish long term and short term?

They oppose the Rebellion and the Empire and anyone who would seek to inhibit their work (research or mining) or corporate progress.

They have access to a vast database of gas mining data, nebula and nebula research and maps, high-tech mining technology and techniques, other related academic pursuits.

They are currently working to monopolize the market share for the rare gasses that are present in abundance in a few difficult to mine nebulae as a method to position their company for strong long-term contracts. This is a large capital investment to which they hope will pay off in the long term even though short term profits are hurting due to shifting so many of their resources to this new endeavor. As a result of this shift of resources their normal gas mining productions has decreased which has resulted in some strikes, protests, and other unsavory happenings, none of which pleases corporate, but they are willing to endure these as a short term annoyance assuming the rare gas mining in the nebulae turns out well.
