See, also, we don't know what Meta-tech and Canon devices or magics that a TG spook would have available to them.
I mean, we're field operatives of a sector task force. Our job is to tackle the situations that a regular field operative can't, such as large crossovers, multiple S.U.E.'s, very powerful S.U.E.'s, and Meta-threats.
The equipment available to us is probably quite different.
And a spook's equipment will be directed towards infiltration, sabotage, and counter-intelligence. There's no telling what kind of abilities that this spook could have.
Actually, Sector HQ does have Meta-comm systems. Would be kind of dumb to get a comm suite to talk with our base, if our base didn't have one.
Also, first thread, Holtz was saying that they had lost contact with the branch bases, implying that there was a way to communicate with them.
When we got to the Mulder Building, we found that they have a Meta-comm array to talk with Sector HQ, and that it was one of the systems that the Sandmen were trying to unlock. They got the local radio up, but the Meta-comm was locked down.
As for Mouse closing the backdoors on the Indefatigable, Relentless, All Under Heaven, Guardian, Valiance, Mikasa, and Hercules, I agree to those.
The original poster excluded A.N.O.N. and the Storm because attempting to do so would likely trigger a High Command override in A.N.O.N., and I agree with their assessment.
