Well, we're confounding everyone, so I think our mission is in good condition.
Do we even have an endgame victory condition? Infest the galaxy maybe?
Anyways, Accountantbrate shouldn't take extreme risks, but how about building in deliberate deficiencies into the weapons we're producing for the UED? Nothing like overheat=explode, more like an easily detectable energy signature, or a difficult to use handgrip. Stuff that won't tip off the bigwigs, but will affect the guys on the ground.
