Science is neutral—so we can only judge its stewards. Chemical Alliance’s executive team immediately recognizes the lethal implications of the cloaking formulation if unleashed in the public square, but they also agree it could save the lives of a lot of kids in uniform. Pressured by shrinking reserves, Peter Holiday, the firm’s CEO, and his CFO, Susan Krammer, give the CIA an arm’s length demonstration. It backfires.
