I.I. specializes in high-tech non-computer or non-communications devices that are too expensive for other mega-corps to produce. More galactic patents are held by I.I. than any other mega-corp, and its research labs are the finest on the Frontier. Since Industrial spying is a way of life with most mega-corps (and I.I. is no exception) its private security force is reputed to be the best in the Frontier.
