"In Extremis” means in grave or extreme circumstances and has been the moniker for special operations dealing with very difficult missions for centuries. Originally adopted by Old Earth’s renowned Delta Force, members of this elite group were sent on missions that no one else dared to attempt. These forces were reputed to contain only the most qualified and hardened veterans.
Apex Continuum’s "In Extremis” Division tries to replicate this long standing tradition, accepting only those with the highest qualifications. The Division provides escort, search and rescue, facilities and space lane security for the corporation, but is also highly trained for other security missions to include ground operations, trade interdiction, and other paramilitary actions. The Division includes both members with extensive deep space combat experience, as well as those who specialize in ground combat operations and ship-board security and boarding operations.
