The Independent Defence Agency is an Elite Dangerous player group dedicated to making human occupied space a fun and adventurous environment. The IDA aims to be a community where commanders can have fun and enjoy playing the game, as well as being a place where new commanders can learn. The IDA organises PvP mini-games and partakes in PvE against both the Thargoids and for bounty hunting.

Categorised by the superpowers as a militia, the IDA is committed to providing defence to human civilisation against the Thargoids and any other foreign invaders.

Currently, we are focused on researching aliens and the recent alien sightings. Our forces include several high-tech research and scientific vessels, which are deployed reguarly to find and inspect various incidents.
