Description:

[3025] Rumor has it that corporate giant Interconnectedness Unlimited appears to be looking to Grehville Plastics, a small manufacturing firm on the planet Edwards, as its next acquisition. The Grehville employees are not happy with the idea of working for an eccentric trillionaire, and are currently preparing to fight off the takeover by buying into the company themselves. Interconnectedness has always had labor problems, and so it will be interesting to see how they handle these employees if they should acquire the company.

[3067] Konradd College on Edwards is the largest private university affiliated with a religious body—in this case the New Avalon Catholic Church—in the Federated Suns. It began as a seminary attached to a monastery in the early 2500s and slowly expanded its operations, first to include training educators of all sorts by the beginning of the next century and then adding general liberal arts degree programs by the end of that century. The college remained fairly stable throughout the Star League era and the first two Succession Wars, but at the height of the Third Succession War school leaders decided that they had a duty to prevent further loss of knowledge, and they devoted themselves to preserving what information they could. Within cavernous bunkers constructed deep in the bedrock below the college grounds, they secretly built a tremendous library containing everything from computer data tapes, books, personal letters and papers, plans and mechanical drawings, audio and tri-vid recordings, working models, and even paintings, sculptures, and other pieces of art. At the same time, the college assembled the single largest collection of religious artifacts and relics to exist alongside its massive collection of historical weapons and armor.

Safeguarding this incredibly priceless treasure for almost two hundred years, the college allowed few people to know of its existence, lest someone attempt to take it from them or destroy it. But by the end of the Fourth Succession War it was clear to school leaders that they could begin to slowly release some of its accumulated knowledge, and so they expanded the school’s degree programs. Today, the college offers degrees in a variety of liberal arts and science and engineering fields, though it continues to concentrate on training clergy, teachers, and others in similar service professions. The library and archives remain off-limits to all but a select core of faculty and researchers, though the school has apparently digitally archived everything, making a significant portion available on the NAIS Information Network — certainly the cost for perpetual access to the NIN.
