MEMORY OMEGA EXTRACT / COMMUNIQUE  

SD44402.1

FROM: ADM MIRIAM RANER, STARFLEET SECURITY (CODED/RESTRICTED)
TO: CDR BRUCE MADDOX, CHAIR OF ROBOTICS, DAYSTROM INSTITUTE

You are hereby ordered to report to Captain Thalla at Starbase 206 for temporary duty, specifically the assembly of a red team with the aim of managing one of the most dangerous assets currently in Starfleet’s possession. Its name is Data.

A “red team,” as you may not be aware, is a group assembled for the express purpose of determining vulnerabilities. In this case, the objective is to find the means to disable the asset against its will. Recent events, of which I’m certain you’re aware, have shown this to be a necessary measure. As one of the foremost experts in positronics, your participation is of the utmost importance.

Project: Data Red is classified at the Admiralty-level. Do not disclose the purpose of this reassignment. Cover orders attached.
