(UUNN HQ) A recently-retrieved DSS has yielded an entirely new kind of data — an image. As with other DSS, this one was made up on long strings of characters. In some cases, these are indecipherable … in other cases, once decrypted, they yield various types of information in text form. But a DSS-1 “Rare” found in Lesser Locks four months ago, turned out to be an image in encoded form.
The document dated AT 102.3.15 appears to be an internal memo from the TRI Evolutionary Council (TEC) welcoming new members to its ranks. There is some data missing from corruption of the data, but some things are fairly clear: that becoming a member of the TEC was a lifetime commitment; that the TEC was involved with research that involved conflux genetics–not surprising since it was widely suspected that the TEC was the organization behind the Conflux Containment Center; and most shockingly, that the TEC supported human experimentation and denial of freedoms.
In 102AT, the TEC was tied to the attempted assassination of Dr. Holly Q’son and the disappearance of TRINN Reporter Zoe Vexel … among many other things rumored but never substantiated such as the attempted assassination Dr. Nevin Yrral (then Director of TRI Research) and the successful assassination of Zhilaa Katdinal (then Director of TRI Bureau of Stellar Cartography).
While the TEC was a part of TRI during The Reconstruction period, it was not part of the reorganization into TRI Corporation in 105AT. There has never been any information on the TEC membership roster.
