Kong Interstellar Corporation is a defense manufacturer dating back to the Star League era.
During the Star League era Kong Interstellar was a major defense contractor to the Star League Defense Force, with manufacturing plants on at least two worlds - Connaught and Loxley. The Loxley facilities didn't survive the Succession Wars. By the thirty-first century Connaught was the primary factory world for Kong Interstellar. The Connaught factory complex was severely damaged during the Succession Wars, losing its manufacturing abilities. It soldiered on as a repair and parts fabrication facility. These repair kits kept the company afloat, but were limited to the products Kong produced. Only after the Clan Invasion did Kong begin to rebuild its manufacturing abilities and resume production of some of its products. The CEO in 3067 is Ryan Phillipousis.
