The Trust

From The Stargate Omnipedia

(Redirected from Trust)

TheTrust.jpg

Coalition of rogue U.S. operatives, formerly associated with the N.I.D., who have chosen to acquire alien technologies in the defense of Earth (and personal monetary gain) at all costs. Enemies of the Goa'uld and any force who would encroach on the sovereignty of the human race, they are self-appointed overseers who lust for financial power while maintaining planetary security.

The Trust has never been cooperative with Stargate Command. They have a Machiavellian history of justifying the means by the end. They are fully prepared to shed innocent blood to keep the human race in their opinion of safety. Their history includes, but is not limited to, kidnapping, blackmail and mass murder.

It is unclear how long the Trust has been operating. Though their name has only been revealed in recent years, the group may stem to the first years of the N.I.D. itself. It is also possible rogue elements of the N.I.D. only recently arrived at this designation to define themselves and their goals in anticipation of achieving greatness in United States history books.

Members of the Trust include (or have included):
Brooks
Kevin Hartkans (possibly hired)
Hoskins
Jennings
Kent
Parker
Wayne
