Rockforth Corporation is an agricultural giant and classified as a mega corporation. Rockforth farms planets and star systems for food. Such as the Ackwada system's land deeds and development rights are owned by Rockforth. Thompson is the CEO.
The Rockforth Corporation began by running Ackwada earning significant foreign exchange from tourism and 'genuine ground-grown food' which it sold far and wide, making very significant revenues. It has since grown into a powerful interstellar corporation, still specialising in agriculture and tourism, with the corporation running giant corporate farms on habitable worlds across especially Federal human space. It has also become quite acquisitive, buying up many of its client companies.
In 2865, Rockforth Corporation requested assistance of the Empire in defending the Ackwada system from the Federation. After the successful defence by Lanner's Privateers, Rockforth paid a substantial financial reward and signed a contract with Lanner's privateers to guarantee the defence of the system.
