Black Tide is an independent exploration company, founded in January 3301 by CMDR Kuroshio. We have no ties to any major powers, but cooperate locally with Cuachini Services, as well as the Sirius Corporation in Lambda Andromedae.
Our portfolio is focussed on short- and long-range exploration, though we are able to provide local trade and security services if needed.
Our main offices are located at Gibson Gateway, Cuachini.
For I dipt into the future, far as human eye could see,
Saw the Vision of the world, and all the wonder that would be;
Saw the heavens fill with commerce, argosies of magic sails,
Pilots of the purple twilight dropping down with costly bales;
Heard the heavens fill with shouting, and there rain’d a ghastly dew
From the nations’ airy navies grappling in the central blue;
Far along the world-wide whisper of the south-wind rushing warm,
With the standards of the peoples plunging thro’ the thunder-storm;
Till the war-drum throbb’d no longer, and the battle-flags were furl’d
In the Parliament of man, the Federation of the world.
There the common sense of most shall hold a fretful realm in awe,
And the kindly earth shall slumber, lapt in universal law.
– Alfred Lord Tennyson
