History and specifics[edit | edit source]
As it was founded in the relatively early part of Federation history, this firm quickly became a principal contractor to Starfleet Command. Its major success came in 1/94 when it designed the first phaser weapon system, namely the Mark 1. This new weapon system replaced the previous generation of laser based emplacements seen on Starfleet starships in the final days of the Four Years War. The firm was later known to have worked closely with Daystrom Data Concepts which led to the creation of the Mark 3 (FH-3) that employed an M-1 multitronic computer. By later years, they maintained at least 17 full-scale production plants that operated twenty four hours a day in order to meet both civilian as well as defensive needs.

In the 2280s, HiBeam, Kloratis Drives and Daystrom Duotronics provided component materials used to manufacture the prototype torpedo for Project Genesis. After the prototype was detonated in 2285, all three companies petitioned the Federation to offer them a new government contract to build replacement prototypes.
