MetaDrive was a company founded to pursue new drive technologies. In secret, it had obtained a Thargoid ship drive and was reverse-engineering it to create technology that would conceal Frame Shift Drive wakes, which would allow ships to pass through territories undetected. The Club arranged for MetaDrive's board of directors to be bribed or coerced into selling out to Sirius Corporation, which maintained a monopoly on other drive technologies; MetaDrive's chairman, Femi Dakarai, was opposed to the acquisition and was quietly assassinated, with his death publicly attributed to illness. MetaDrive's research was given to Bill Turner, an Engineer and Club operative, to complete.
