GLi-Tech, based on GLi-Tech-nia in the Rimshot system, is a major weapons manufacturer. Founded in 2045 AD (circa -735 NC, approximately 1900 years before the game began) under the name GLiMMER, they were forced to change their name to GLi-Tech in the year 120 NC, after an intense legal battle following the settlement of the Glimmer system. GLi-Tech invented most forms of guided missile used in Federation space, though some are produced under license by another company, Kayel Solutions. Many of their methods are unethical at best; for example, they test weapons on other ships, and they use their monopoly on Gravimetric Missiles to jack up the price.


If you have any gameplay tips, hints, or background information relevant to this topic, please post them here.

Gli-tech has customers from all factions, so don't be surprised at some of the ships you may see when visiting the system. There is a brief GLi-Tech mission string, which begins with deliveries available on GLi-Tech-nia, goes on to include the testing of several new weapons, and can tie into the Federation storyline if you are playing both.
