That same year, Captain Grumby sent a message to Commander Horton at the Terrestrial Defense Division about STFL cargo manifest 045-349374. The cargo was sensor drones, which were delivered to Starbase 74. There was concern that Commander Quinteros would be unable to acknowledge readiness for deploying sensor drones. In that case, the captain suggested to the commander that a secondary readiness scenario should be prepared in the event that sensor drones would have to be deployed prior to full operation of the data transmission network. The commander was then asked to advice the captain of their decision.
