Founded officially in 2795, the corporation was originally named Ns-Shan Computer Tracking Company. As Ns-Shan, the computer manufacturer was aggressive in selling its quality computers beneath the competition's prices. By 2795 it had 30% of Lyran market and it formally changed its name. The company began to buy up smaller companies to build itself up in dawn of the First Succession War.

By 3067, the company had become a multi-division corporation, with a number of smaller companies as Divisions, including Gulf Breeze Mining Union. It made corporate partnerships with Defiance Industries which allowed them to open up three additional divisions in military hardware. The Nashan was considered at the time, one House Steiner's largest corporations. They were known for producing wide range of products from Pharmaceuticals to WorkMechs.

The organization was infamous for its ultra elite security force known as the Black Guard.[1]

After the Clan Invasion, Nashan Shipping was hiring mercenary forces to guard their DropShips and JumpShips. Later investigations found that Nashan used some of these mercenary forces to deliver supplies to resistance cells operating in the Clan Occupation Zones.[2]

Nashan Diversified had owned some hyper-advanced satellite manufacturing facilities prior to the Jihad,[3] manufacturing such designs as the SneakSat,[4] but these facilities were destroyed by the Word of Blake during the Jihad, along with the facilities of Nashan's closest competitor in the satellite market, Doering Electronics. As of 3084, neither company had rebuilt its facilities, and the damage to various satellite manufacturers had led to surviving civilian industries rapidly expanding to meet the demand for replacements.[3]


As of 3067, Nashan Diversified's CEO was Duchess Margaret Doons.


Nashan Diversified has large range of divisions producing or providing services throughout both the Lyran Commonwealth and Federated Suns territories. Section is divided by named products produced and basic info listed what they produce.

Nashan Diversified has manufacturing centers on the following planets:


  • N&D Shipyards of Alarion - A joint venture between Defiance Industries and Nashan Diversified formed in 3024 to take over the assets of Henderson JumpShips of Alarion Unlimited, who was forced into bankruptcy in 3012 when it was unable to recover from the damage inflicted by House Marik forces during Alessandro Steiner's disastrous Operation Concentrated Weakness. As part of the purchase, N&D Shipyards retained most of Henderson's employees as the core of the new company, who was expected to have resumed full production no later than 3033.[5] The company produced civilian JumpShips and space stations for House Steiner until its destruction during the early years of the Jihad.[6]

  • Nashan Computers - Producer of Personal & Commercial Computers and Software.


  • Nashan Nashan Architectural - Design and construction of buildings.[1] [5]
  • Nashan Foods - Production of Basic and Gourmet Foods.[1] Division head as of 3025: Jacob Deitrichson. Its headquarters originally located on New Exford, Nashan Foods owns huge tracts of fertile land on New Exford, Bountiful Harvest, Graceland, Summit and Hamilton and was one of the few interstellar food companies active in Lyran space after the collapse of the Star League. By the end of the Third Succession War Nashan Foods was on the verge of becoming the sole food provider to a number of the heavily industrialized worlds in the Tamar Pact with a number of contracts with worlds in Draconis Combine space. Nashan Foods specializes in grains, fruits and other assorted products, but by 3025 its meat division was ramping up exports of cattle, pigs, Gnu-Oxen and bison from ranches on New Exford and Hamilton. Though approximately 75% of the company was in the basic food segment, the company was expanding into the gourmet segment with delicacies like Exford Truffles, Meat Lettuces of Harvest, Binsby Berries and Buleen Anchovies placing it in heavy competition with Bountiful Delicacies. The competition was reportedly hostile, with Bountiful Delicacies claiming a damaging outbreak of Henderson's Ich in 3025 wiped out Bountiful's stock of sturgeon was actually industrial espionage on the part of Nashan Foods.[5]
  • Nashan Pharmaceuticals - Producer of Medical Supplies and Pharmaceutical drugs. Built from the remains of Baker Pharmaceuticals, rather than reorganise and integrate Baker's Baker 3 headquarters into the ND family, Nashan chose to virtual liquidate the company and transfer its assets to Nashan's newer Donegal offices.[1]
  • Nashan Shipping - Donegal based Interstellar and planetary freight company.[1] Division Head as of 3025: Elisworth Codorniz. Nashan's smallest division of 3025, Nashan Shipping was originally formed to serve as the transportation division for Nashan Foods, before it began to sell spare cargo space on its freighters to help cut costs. Continuing this policy, including on occasion handling even secure ComStar cargos, Nashan Shipping quickly expanded to handle almost all the transportation needs for the entire Nashan Diversified group.[5]


  • N&D Targeting Computers of Furillo - Joint holding between Defiance Industries and Nashan Diversified. During the Jihad it lost about 5% of its personnel, but by 3079 it was operating at full productivity.[7] N&D expanded its production line by adding the Swallow Attack WiGE its list products by 3092.[8][9]

  • Nashan Communications and Entertainment - News and Entertainment corporation based out of Gallery. Formerly known as Kelly Communications, Nashan acquired the company near the end of the Third Succession War in a exceedingly hostile take-over, with shots fired between Kelly security troops and Nashan agents resulting in legal censor of ND by the Lyran government.[5] The satellite systems produced on Gallery became increasingly important to the LAAF during the Jihad as the satellites were a valuable force multiplier when the combat strength of the LAAF was reducing.[14]
