Code Expert: The protocols use poly-phasic entangled waveforms. Quantum encryption, Black Quartz stuff, way beyond military-grade. That's what you demanded, so that's what we delivered.
Ted Faro: You don't code something you can't crack. All we need is a back door. Upload the latest service pack update and the problem goes away.
Code Expert: You specifically forbade us from leaving anything resembling a back door in code: "Every protocol to Black Quartz standard." Your words. Look. If you need me to fudge some projections, it's nothing we haven't done before.
Ted Faro: I don't need fudged projections! I need a way to reassert control over the Hartz-Timor swarm.
Code Expert: ...I don't know what to tell you, Ted. You're asking the impossible.
