Originally formed by Emperor-Elect Anton Merin as an Imperial
Tributary to develop high technologies for the Kharkosanth Empire without fear
of tampering, espionage, or sabotage by outside parties. The IDC would
gradually develop into a super-corporation, developing not only new
technologies and scientific theories but also manufacturing and bringing
specific product online for the exclusive use of the Empire or to be sold on
the free market to generate revenue for the Empire. They have the power to
absorb into their framework any technology, team, or work being done within
the Empire that is deemed important enough.
The IDC is a Tributary
overseen by the Tribunal of Scientific Development of the Kharkosanth Empire.
It answers directly to the greatest scientific minds in the Kharkosanth
Empire, who answer directly to the Emperor-Elect. It has holds vast power in
terms of the development, control, and distribution of technology within the
bounds of the Empire.
The Policy Board
consists of 5 officers who have risen through the ranks of the
IDC, all scientists carefully chosen with the interests of the
Empire at heart. They communicate directly up with the
Tribunal of Scientific Development and the Emperor, and
directly down to the heads of the other wings of the IDC. They
set all the official policy for the IDC in terms of what
technology is to be developed, what will be manufactured, and
how and to who it will be distributed.
department of the IDC oversees and directs the development of
all new technologies. It determines the level of secrecy and
security each project requires and facilitates lab and field
testing during development.
department mass produces the technologies developed by the
Development department. Manufacture determines whether it
is more feasible to develop IDC-owned facilities or to farm
out manufacture to existing organizations or corporations.
department markets and distributes what Manufacture
produces. They work directly with the merchant branch of the
Imperial Fury Starforce.
Acquisition monitors independent scientific
development. They will absorb any independent projects deemed
important or dangerous enough. They enforce rules regarding
the development, manufacture, and distribution of technology
throughout the Empire and developed by the Empire. They
conduct intelligence and counter-intelligence, seeking out new
technologies being developed outside the Empire and are
responsible for retrieving any technologies inadvertently lost
by the Empire.
Military & Starship
is a special wing of the IDC tasked with setting special
policy on the development of Military equipment and Starships
for the Empire. They are both policy advocate on the direction
that current technological development should go and
brain-trust, suggesting new ideas and avenues for development
to strengthen the Empire.
