Classified information is material that a government body claims is sensitive information that requires protection of confidentiality, integrity, or availability. Access is restricted by law or regulation to particular groups of people, and mishandling can incur criminal penalties, including execution.
Some corporations and non-government organizations also assign sensitive information to multiple levels of protection, either from a wish to protect trade secrets, or because of laws and regulations governing various matters such as personal privacy, sealed legal proceedings and the timing of financial information releases.
This is the case with Level 7. The Union of Allied Planets is governed by the Parliament. It is the Parliament which deemed all activities of Level 7 to be classified. In Executive Order 65, the Parliament stated, “It is desired that no document be released which refers to experiments with humans and might have adverse effect on public opinion or result in legal suits. Documents covering such work field should be classified ‘secret’.”
The dirty little secret about Level 7 is simply that they are a private company sponsored by Blue Sun Corporation and funded by the Union of Allied Planets. The overall goal of the Level 7 is to create the perfect soldier with only one purpose to accomplish: to complete the mission for the Alliance. Because of this, the soldier is to be left with virtually no emotions, doubts, or even memories.
Using the Academy as a Front Organization, Level 7 is provided with the best and brightest of the young men and women of the Central Planets. Using various techniques, participants are evaluated and placed in specific facilities based on their personal strengths and abilities.
Level 7 takes its name from the concept that the mind exists in seven stages or levels. Using a rating system known as the Global Assessment of Functioning Scale, a Practitioner of the Healing Arts is able to classify each Academy Participant from Rank 1 to Rank 7. All Rank 7 ranked participants are immediately entered into the Level 7 Program. Any participant who displays Latent or Active psychic abilities are automatically rated at Rank 7.
Rank 7 participants are placed through a series of experimental procedures with the ultimate goal of creating a perfect warrior for the Alliance. Any participants who prove to have extraordinary success are transitioned from Department 7 which focuses mainly on biomedical research and cloning.
Few people know about the existence of Level 7, and even less understand fully what it is that the organization does within its secret laboratories. Knowledge is a dangerous thing. Blue Sun Corporation employs an entire agency of Operatives who report directly to key members of Parliament.
These agents are willing to kill to keep Level 7 secret. They will leave a pile of bodies in their wake simply to root out a single lost asset or possible threat.
And those are the dirty little secrets of Level 7.
