Overview[edit]

Founded by famous trader Roy Comrada, Virtue Cartographers are the premier starmap makers in the Lyran Commonwealth, rivaling the expertise of even the ComStar Cartographic Corps. Focused towards the needs of the career trader, the company's skills brings them in touch with various planetary trading companies and some of the Virtue employees will accompany these companies on distant journeys. [1] [2]

The company attempted to expand to challenge ComStar's Explorer Corps near monopoly on deep space exploration in 3025 under its then CEO Louis Comrada, a fifth generation descendant of Roy Comrada. Louis entered into negotiations with House Steiner to purchase used military freighters to achieve this, ultimately successful thanks to the political and financial support of then Archon Katrina Steiner in the mid-3030s. Even with this assistance it would take Virtue Cartographers almost twenty years to obtain enough JumpShips and qualified crews to start launching exploration missions. [1] [2]

With the public release of much more detailed ComStar maps in the wake of the ComStar Schism, Louis Comrada's son Pedro modified his father's lofty mission to increasingly focus on trade and exploration to the Deep Periphery.[2]
