  5. Xeno-Technology
The Xeno-Technology Department focus on the technological advancements of alien species through their weaponry, communication systems, computing technology, and military advancement – we study the very technology their species is built on in order to create awareness. We understand how their technology is used, so if needed how we can counteract that technology.

For a chronological view of events and discoveries, visit the Canonn Timeline in the Lore pages.

More recently the Thargoids have…
