NovaCorp is a Yamataian manufacturing company, producing, weapons, space craft and other products.
In YE 26 a group of scientists purchased a mining license from the Yamatai Star Empire in order to explore the Kohana Cloud under the false impression that a new element with unique properties could be found within its heart. This fabled material turned out not to exist, however the group began a mining operation to sustain their search and from this came the foundations of NovaCorp (which due to an early administrative argument is on occasion referred to as 'The Nova Corporation'). A wise early investment on purchased ships from the Zero Fleet gave them a Horizon-class Colony Ship, YSS Horizon, to operate out of and the fortuitous arrival of the eccentric genius Ephesus provided them a ready source of new technology. With this NovaCorp changed its operation - from a empty goal to having none at all. Instead it began to use its ever increasing resources to begin an enigmatic but ultimately benevolent scheme with an internal administration system beyond comprehension. Some have theorized that NovaCorp's only wish is to be used.
In YE 34 the company was acquired by the Tamahagane Corporation and is now being overhauled.
In YE 35 the Corporation began upgrading the company facilities, and work started on revitalizing the product line.
