DARPA Staff are Important

DARPA staff are contractors from companies like Booz Allen Hamilton - they do jobs like schedule things (what else do they do?)

They actually transmit a lot of long term culture. Weirdly they are both contractors and the people with less agency and power, which is the opposite of modern companies so it feels a little archaic, aesthetically similar to British Batmen or Yardham in The Dagger and the Coin. And yet, there’s something about the least powerful being the transmitters of culture instead of the most powerful.
