The logo of Juke Limited.

Juke Limited was the largest mining corporation in the solar system. Founded by Ukko Jukes, he used various ruthless tactics to achieve dominance over the industry. The company had headquarters on Luna.[1]

History Edit

Past Edit

The company was known for using illegal techniques in order to obtain their interests, including bumping - stealing an asteroid from a ship that was already mining it. One such incident occurred in The Belt where a Juke vessel bumped a Bulgarian free miner ship, which resulted in the ship's crew, including Verbatov, breaking up and going their separate ways looking for work.[1]

One of the other advantages Juke Limited had was the Parallax Telescopes, which allowed the company to collect information on its competitors.[2]

Juke Limited also set up mining colonies or cities up on asteroids as a way of claiming an asteroid. One such example was the asteroid Kleopatra, which was home to at least seven thousand residents.[1]

Shortly before the First Invasion, Juke Limited developed two new prototypes - the Glaser and the Vanguard drone. The Glaser was a weapon combining the power of gravity with a laser, while the Vanguard was a prospecting drone, designed to look for viable asteroids.[1][3]

Earth Awakens Edit

After Juke sent their entire fleet of Vanguard drones armed with Glasers to destroy the Formic scout ship, the company's stock took a huge drop as the attack failed miserably. However, the company financed a second mission to infiltrate the Formic scout ship and offered a protection shield using Juke ships to various companies and corporations.[2]

After Ukko Jukes, the company's founder, stepped down to become the first Hegemon of the newly formed Earth Hegemony, he appointed his son Lem Jukes to become the new CEO.[2]

The Swarm Edit

After capturing the Formic scout ship, it became property of Juke Limited by salvage law. Juke immediatley began to research the alien ship, constructing large rings around the scout ship to understand its technology and hull material.[4]

Juke also constructed shipyards in the Belt for building International Fleet warships.[4]

Divisions Edit

Experimental Defense Division Edit

The Experimental Defense Division was directed by Noloa Benyawe after the First Formic War. The purpose of the division was to develop and test new technologies that could protect Earth against the incoming Formic fleet and provide Juke Limited with a source of revenue by selling the technologies to the International Fleet.[4]
