Drek Industries was a blarg company ran by Chairman Alonzo Drek that featured as the main antagonists in Ratchet & Clank, as well as the 2016 re-imagined game and movie. It was a manufacturer of vehicles, weaponry, and robotics, as well as a terraforming company with the express goal of creating a new planet to replace the polluted blarg homeworld of Orxon.
Drek Industries harvested pieces of several planets in the Solana Galaxy in order to piece together their own perfect new planet, destroying the harvested planets in the process. This led them to be opposed by Ratchet and Clank, who eventually stopped the company. Following Drek's defeat and the destruction of the Deplanetizer, Drek Industries has been inactive, and is presumed defunct.
Pre-Ratchet & Clank
Drek Industries were responsible for polluting Orxon, making it uninhabitable. Following this, Chairman Drek sought to build a new planet. Though he told the blarg and the rest of the galaxy that he was motivated by the desire to create a new home for his people, he was actually motivated by profit, and Drek Industries would pollute the next world. Drek Industries signed an endorsement deal with Captain Qwark, making him the highly paid spokeperson for the new planet.
One of Drek Industries' early targets was planet Novalis, targeted for its renowned waterworks among other things. Drek Industries also sent a robot attack force, consisting of peckbots and birdbots, as well as blarg bombers. Novalis' chairman, Agnogg Buckwash, attempted to protest the attack.
Ratchet & Clank
On Quartu, a Drek Industries sentry-bot factory produced a defect, Clank. Clank fled the factory after seeing an infobot containing Drek's plan, and Drek Industries sent two electroids to shoot Clank down. Clank crash landed on Veldin, where he met a lombax named Ratchet. The two set off to find Captain Qwark and fight Drek, unaware that Qwark was employed by Drek. As they set off to Novalis, Drek dismissed Agnogg Buckwash, who had worn out his patience.
Drek Industries later sent blarg forces to Kerwan in search of Ratchet and Clank when they arrived. Around this time, Drek's Robot Lieutenant was deployed to Eudora, along with a robotic lumberjack force consisting of sawbots and axebots to harvest the planet's trees, as well as a few blarg troopers for reinforcements. Shortly after, after Qwark lured Ratchet and Clank into a trap on his base on Umbris, he betrayed them, feeding them to the blargian snagglebeast. Ratchet and Clank defeated the snagglebeast and escaped, leading Drek to scold Qwark.
Drek Industries also sent an army consisting of blarg destroyers and blarg minifighters in the air, as well as cannonball tanks, blarg paratroopers and blarg bombthrowers on the ground, to Batalia, an attack staged from their Blarg Depot on Gaspar. Drek Industries also dumped toxic chemicals into the waters on Pokitaru with blarg waste disposal tankers.
Searching for a new orbital position for the new planet, Drek Industries created the PlanetBuster Maximus from their factory on Hoven, which would destroy the planet occupying the current orbital position. However, Ratchet and Clank destroyed the planetbuster, prompting them to work on a replacement, the Deplanetizer superlaser. Meanwhile, Drek Industries built the Gemlik Base in the orbit of planet Oltanis, aiming to attack Oltanis to steal its power generators. Drek also sent Qwark to use his starfighter to defeat Ratchet and Clank here. The attack on Oltanis was successful, but Qwark was defeated.
Drek therefore sent blarg elite commandos to defeat Ratchet and Clank when they went to Kalebo III. Meanwhile, the Deplanetizer had found its target: Veldin, occupying the perfect orbit for his new planet. Ratchet and Clank found Drek on the Deplanetizer, and after a long battle, sent Drek in his Ultra Supreme Executive Chairman Drek-Mech off to the new planet, then destroyed the new planet with Drek still on it. Drek Industries was presumed disbanded after this point.
In Qwark's version of events and the holo-film, Drek Industries was a company based on Quartu, the blarg homeworld. Drek Industries, under Chairman Alonzo Drek's father, had polluted Quartu, leading his son Alonzo Drek to work on a new home for his people, named New Quartu. To do this, Drek teamed up with former Galactic Ranger, Dr. Nefarious, to build a Deplanetizer, which would destroy a planet, and then harvest its pieces for the new world.
After the Deplanetizer destroyed uninhabited planets, this caught the notice of the Galactic Rangers. Drek commissioned Nefarious to create a warbot army led by Victor Von Ion to attack Kerwan and destroy the Rangers in the Hall of Heroes. However, one warbot defect, Clank, fled the planet, narrowly evading Victor Von Ion, but crash-landing on Veldin, where he met Ratchet. Drek Industries sent a small force to Veldin to find the defect, but were unsuccessful. Meanwhile, Drek Industries sent a force of blarg to attack planets Aridia and Novalis, after Skidd McMarx revealed secret plans for the hydroharvesters to harvest water for their new world. Along with traditional blarg forces, Drek Industries also sent amoeboids and a robotic force of birdbots and peckbots to Novalis, in an attempt to take down Agnogg Buckwash, the uncle of Skidd McMarx.
The Drek Industries warbot army attacked Kerwan, though Ratchet and Clank were able to destroy the blarg battleship and stop the invasion. The blarg mercenaries attempted to defeat them after, but were unsuccessful. Later, Drek Industries sent a force of amoeboids to attack Rilgar, though they were defeated by Ratchet and Clank as well as the local extermibots. Ratchet and Clank also visited the Blarg Tactical Research Station in Nebula G34, defeating Drek Industries' experimental controlled blargian snagglebeast, as well as obtaining their Predator Launcher prototype.
Drek Industries sent battleships to attack Batalia, in order to destroy the Starwatch Defense Cannon and create safe passage for many of their harvesters. They also sent hydroharvesters to Pokitaru to drain the planet's water supply. Afterwards, the Galactic Rangers attacked Quartu, but were unable to stop Drek. Here, Drek convinced Captain Qwark to betray the Rangers. Drek Industries set its next target for the Deplanetizer to destroy: Novalis, a populated planet.
The Rangers attempted to stop the Deplanetizer, but Qwark's betrayal caused them to fail. The Deplanetizer acquired a new target: Umbris, a planet with an unstable core. However, this was coordinated entirely by Dr. Nefarious, as destroying Umbris' core when all planets in the star system aligned would destroy the entire star system. Drek Industries then sent an invasion force to Kalebo III to stop the Rangers, but were unsuccessful. As the Rangers took off to the Deplanetizer to stop it destroying Umbris, Dr. Nefarious betrayed Drek, transforming him to a sheep with the Sheepinator, and blasting him off to New Quartu. The Rangers then stopped Nefarious and the Deplanetizer, at which point Drek Industries was then presumed defunct.
