Research and Development
Hidden in deep space the Consortium has many research hubs, where its scientists, are able to research and develop the newest and most powerful technology the Galaxy has seen. With the stranglehold on technology seen in the Galaxy, with few assets available, without this department the Consortium would be held back by the inferior technologies available on the open market. But thanks to this department the consortium is able to develop its own technology and expand through its use.
New medical systems are being developed, so those who would once have died of thier wounds are now likely to survive and be able to continue to work, as if the wounds had never occured.
Many are afraid of advancement and instead hold onto the old technology they are used to.This is what sets the consortium apart from the rest of the galaxy, they are not affraid, and will leave the rest of the galaxy behind with its new technology, expanding its reaches, and in time, exploring new galaxies.
