The largest corporate entity in the Federation.
The largest corporate entity in the Federation, involved with the production and distribution of nearly every item related to culture and civilization, from food and pharmaceuticals to software, hardware, and even weapons and communications. It is divided into many departments, with the First R&D Division, Second R&D Division, and Third R&D Division forming its core.
It has total control over communications and military affairs, from U.M.N. construction and Realian development to the production of A.G.W.S.s and KOS-MOS. Wilhelm, its CEO, used to work as Executive Committee Director, giving him major clout with both the Federation government and the governments of the assorted autonomous states.
Vector's long history can be traced all the way back to the ancient age of Lost Jerusalem. The excavation of the Zohar in Lake Turkana was carried out under Vector sponsorship, and Vector also handled the later analysis of the Original Zohar. The name Wilhelm is listed as the company's leader from that time, but it is unclear what connection this person may have with the current CEO.
