Grady & Brunt Prospects in the codex.

Grady & Brunt Prospects is a major interstellar mining corporation and one of five factions in the Everspace universe. Their operations and freighters are frequently found throughout the Demilitarized Zone. They are the only mining corporation allowed to operate in the DMZ as per the peace treaty between the Colonials and the Okkar. As such, Okkar and G&B ships will not attack each other unless otherwise provoked.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

A screenshot of a mining laser at a G&B mining operation, with the fuel tanks of another G&B structure visible.

G&B ships and structures can be found in almost every sector and zone, often being attacked by Outlaws. Many mining operations can be found, with mining in progress. You can stop by and pick up dropped Ore or Gas from the mining lasers before the mining drones pick it up, without negative repercussions from G&B. However, the large mining lasers (if accidentally flown into) will deal 400 hull and shield damage per second.

The ships and structure defenses are neutral, but if attacked or their containers are broken by the player, nearby G&B ships and turrets will become aggressive. The attack can also be reported, which makes them aggressive throughout the entire sector. The attack will not carry over between deaths and the likelihood of them reporting the attack to other sectors be decreased with the Diplomacy Perk. The last two levels of that perk also enable G&B assistance to jump in and assist the player in fights against Outlaws. They will jump out as soon as all nearby threats are gone, and will not pursue other enemies like the Ancients from the Ancient Friends Glyph.

Service Stations are owned and operated by G&B. There are also large, unpowered G&B Factories. Once powered up, G&B freighters will start jumping in and out of the factory, and the factory's services will open up.

Random Missions[edit | edit source]

Occasionally when jumping into a zone, HIVE will inform the player of a G&B freighter or ship in need of assistance. Completing a certain task for them will award credits. These missions can include:

  • Searching an area to find containers with missing products within a large area (usually 'towels' or 'goods', not real in-game resources) and delivering them to the freighter
    • These containers will not show up on the radar unless in very close proximity - try looking for the containers visually.
  • Clearing minefields around freighters
  • Protecting freighters or a G&B ship against an Outlaw attack

G&B Ships[edit | edit source]

There are several types of G&B ships. G&B ships have a yellow trail.

In the Codex[edit | edit source]

Faction Entry:
[[File:]]
Grady & Brunt Prospects is the monolithic Colonial interstellar mining concern which holds several regional monopolies throughout the galaxy. As well as resource extraction and logistics, the corporation has invested heavily in drone, weapons, and jumpgates technologies to secure its supremacy in the industry sector. Close ties with the Colonial Fleet has drawn criticism of cronyism in the past, although there are few viable concerns capable of handling the vast task of Colonial ambitions.

Formed in mid-19th Century Earth by Oswald Grady during a gold resource rush in an area then known as California, an early partnership with another prospector by the name of William Brunt established a two-family enterprise which operated on a small local scale until the mid-21st century. In 2046 the company was inherited by a direct-descendant Zeppo Grady, considered a visionary, who quickly expanded the business outwards with the invention of asteroid-hunting drones to bring resource-rich rocks into Earth's low orbit for dismantling. The concern has continued to grow exponentially since that time. interrupted only by periodic wars and the destruction of its home state. Grady & Brunt was the first Earth-based concern to attain the title "Inter-Stellar Corporation".

Today, Grady & Brunt employs about 21 million workers in every end of Colonial claim and is vital to the continued restructuring and terraforming of the Colonial home system. Other mining operations offer some local, although trivial in reach, competition. These include Antares Deep Space Resources, Pluto Rare Metals, Astro Mining Group, and First Space Ventures Limited. Grady & Brunt, however, hold the sole contract for the Demilitarized Zone of Cluster 34, an arrangement tolerated by, although not protected by, the Okkar administration of the area. The concern utilizes private security to protect their interests in this case.
