A continuation of the as-yet-unnamed scenario I started in a What If?
over in the SFC: What if Cipher Nine had participated in an operation (just before Agent Act 2, in the middle of Vierce's Act 2) to frame Elara Dorne for espionage? Now we have the interference of Law and Governance.
The entire timeline will have spoilers for Elara Dorne's conversation line and Trooper through the middle of Act 2, and Agent Act 2 spoilers will very soon become significant; additional spoilers will be marked as they come up. 2300 words.
