While The Locus isn’t protected the same way that a military or intelligence facility is there are pretty damn good rigor and decent data security as far as getting stuff in there. However, were something false be entered into The Locus, it would become part of the official archive and distribute to all mirrors (eventually). As said before The Locus is the definitive archive. Were it to be altered it could become permanent especially if it was a small detail. Big changes would be noticed and while the archives are considered priceless, they aren’t “sacred”. If an error was caught it would simply be corrected… If it was caught.
Could the locus store data use the superpositioning of particles and spooky action? (I think I said it right(nvm I didn’t, it is quantum entanglement) That way, any change in the locus would result in an instantaneous change in the copies. Right so abyssal lord captured. Hopefully, they can make friends rather than kill it. I know things have only been going downhill but this is the first chance since Patricia’s plan started and the federation went genocidal that something good can happen. Do not kill the angler eel! Maybe just make friends with it, offer it some sushi. Ask it to not let them bombard you from orbit.
