The Rock Raiders are a mining and exploration agency.
Soon after, the Energy Crystals were decided to be a suitable power source for Earth. Classic Space sent the LMS Explorer back to Planet U. The Rock Raiders then made a mining operation there.
The Rock Raiders, being linked to Classic Space, have a lot of technology at their disposal. They pre-dominently have the LMS Explorer which is equiped with engines which can achieve faster-than-light travel and a teleporter. They have a lot of buildings they can teleport down to the planet they are exploring, and have more than ten types of mining and exploration vehicles at their disposal.
