Incom Corporation was a Fresia-based corporation known for designing and manufacturing robust, forward-thinking starfighters, speeders, and transports. They were renowned for their production of the T-65 X-wing starfighter, which became a key tool and symbol of the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War.

History

During the days of the Republic, Incom had a standing partnership with Subpro Corporation, and produced several collaborative designs, including the popular Z-95 Headhunter line. In 22 BBY, though, HoloNet News reported that the relationship between the two companies was dissolved.

However, this report may have been premature or erroneous, as the Incom/Subpro collaboration produced the Aggressive ReConnaissance-170 starfighter in the later years of the Clone Wars. Alternatively, it is conceivable that the ARC-170 had had the bulk of its design already in place by 22 BBY, and that production continued after the two firms parted ways.

When the staunchly independent company was nationalized by the Galactic Empire around late 1 BBY, much of its design & engineering staff defected. They made four prototypes of a new breed of starfighter available to the Rebel Alliance, and took a course of action to bring the blueprints and production know-how to Alliance facilities.

In reaction, Imperial officials rounded up the Incom engineers and scientists, and expeditiously sentenced them to labor in the spice mines of Kessel. However, they were spared their fate when a Rebel task force led by Captain Raymus Antilles intercepted their transports and brought them into the Alliance's fold.

The Incom corporation continued, in name, under Imperial contract, but never flourished as it once had. With its innovative soul gone, it only produced "average" fighters such as the I-7 Howlrunner. Several employees, not among the group that went off to Alliance service, and who had managed to slip away during the tumultuous days of Imperial takeover, banded together and established FreiTek, Inc.

After the fall of Emperor Palpatine, Incom seemed to re-amalgamate itself into a cohesive company once again. They modeled themselves after other similar technology fabricators, by maintaining "neutrality" and providing wares to both the New Republic and Imperial Remnant.

Like Sienar Fleet Systems, Incom seems to have had a number of subsidiary plants scattered around the galaxy, most notably one at Ranklinge in the Shelsha Sector
