The Oxioni Galactic Trade Coalition, often referred to as the 'OTC' or 'Oxi-Trade' for short, is an independent coalition of nomadic merchants who make a living from travelling across the galaxy while trading exotic goods to the highest bidder.
After millenia of war and disease the planet of Oxios was slowly dying. With decreasing numbers and no allies to help them the Oxioni poured all of their remaining resources into constructing the Pentagon Station.
Their new home and salvation from a horrible fate. Forming the OGTC in the year of 2250 the Oxioni became pacifists who travelled the across the galaxy as merchants.
After a few rough first years they slowly settled in and now many systems depend on the OGTC for rare resources otherwise unavailable to them.
