History

With the establishment of Universal Cinematics in YE 02, the increase in popularity for Film exploded in the Yamatai Star Empire. With that in mind, long-time producer Victor Strauss came to Planet Yamatai to convey the establishment of a new film company. With YE 10 soon approaching, Victor thought up the name of New Decade Entertainment, which became NDE for short.

As the company was formed, Victor Strauss took up the role as President, while his partner Lucas Hawthorne took up the role as co-chairman for the Board. Long-time director Chris Marcus, an associate of Lucas, took up the role of Chief of production. George Harrot, David Carter & Charles Hayes would become some of the very successful directors that NDE employed, creating multiple film series. Gregory Tam, David Barnes & Billy Marshal directed several stand-alone films for NDE.

The first success for NDE came in the form of the The Train Robber series from Harrot, that ran from YE 09 until YE 14. The series earned NDE a place in the film industry, amongst other giants. The publicity the films brought, attracted investors of Universal Cinematics, who negotiated a deal as subsidiary of Universal. In YE 12, NDE was wholly bought by Universal, becoming it subsidiary. Under their flag, NDE would successfully develop two other franchises: The Cabinet, from Carter, and Red Bonnet, from Hayes. The dialogue used in the films, was revolutionary, and inspired other dialogue techniques to be developed. In YE 13, Lion Effects was created to compete with Universal's Temple Effects & Sounds. However, since YE 19 and the acquisition by Yukosfilm Ltd, it has remained a small player in the effects and sounds industry and is overshadowed by Yukosfilm's own Temple Effects & Sounds.

With the bankruptcy of Universal in YE 19, NDE was once again up for sale, where it was bought by Yukosfilm Ltd, who also relocated the studios of NDE to their own complex. This continued after the destruction Geshrinopolis, and the NDE studios still reside in the complex of Yukosfilm. The work of cameramen Freddy Grant and Lucas Magall led to the development of new cinematic techniques, while the work of designers Juliette Hajer and Miri Kajet changed the way of costume designing forever.

In YE 30, NDE created the Galactic Conflict Franchise, along with Firefly Films, another subsidiary of Yukosfilm Ltd. It has since become one of the most successful film series of all time, also sporting a healthy rivalry with fellow sci-fi series Galactic Adventures.

In YE 34, with the increasing amount of Animation studios, NDE created NDE Animation, who have since produced 2 full-length animation features. In YE 35, Chris Marcus died, and was followed up by his son Henry.
