The long strange trip
General Products, LIC: Largely concerned with heavy industry, General is a manufacturer of starships, non-starships, and heavy machinery of all sorts. General is known for inexpensive products of adequate quality, but of late its starship division (particularly its military products) has been plagued with disaster. The corporation was formed by the merger of a number smaller manufacturing concerns shortly after the end of the Civil War, in the period 620 to 622.
