Black Nova Corporation [BNC] originally formed in 2003 from a group of independent pilots, from multiple timezones, in Outer Ring. Their initial key objective was co-operative PvNPC and later PvP combat.

In late 2003, BNC proceeded with a number of Mergers with like-minded corporations including Tranquility Drinkers Club and Hooded Monks Mining Industries. After a number of suggestions for hybrid names, BNC remained.

In Early 2004, Black Light took over CEO ship by unanimous vote of confidence and the current leadership of the PvP focused corporation was realised.

Black Nova regularly purges non-active Pilots and pilots with poor PvP combat records to keep a tight and lean fighting force.
