3. "RE: (pre-teaser) Upcoming Thing"
In response to message #0
Is there any kind of special flag in the RZC database to tell allies* "don't worry, it's cool" when a biometric scan doesn't match up properly (or show any DNA whatsoever**)?
*I'm assuming that if an enemy nation has questions about that, it's handled with a wad of either credits or corrosive torpedoes, as needed.
**I'm sure the details of a Mental Model's construction could go deep into "don't investigate this too closely" territory. The only question I'd want to ask is, considering the Grey Goo contingency, how thoroughly does Customs search for stray nanomachines?
