labman: So they're going to have all the cool tech gizmos like James Bond now?   Cool.

"The CIA requests that other federal labs and academic leaders send in their ideas to work together via an online form."

Trust us.

"Some phenomenal innovations have come from CIA over the years..."

They did introduce LSD to America and its citizens.

Meh.. it's just another part of the aparatus the Company have spun up to provide a veneer of oversight by those who ar not 'inside'.

Have they had a member of the Q Continuum show up on Star Trek: Lower Decks yet?  Because I would totally watch that episode.
