A rookie agent assigned to test a new piece of technology makes a momentous observation about a young woman at a taco truck.

Genre: Science Fiction


The human eye can only see so much. The human senses can only perceive…so much. That is why the Agency established an entire division to develop and test technologies that can augment and even surpass human perception.

DarkGray, it was called.

Episode Art Description: Digital drawing.  A young woman seen in left side profile sitting on a bench.  She is leaning forward and has her mouth parted. In both hands, she holds a wrapped food item. A napkin lies on her lap. Beside her is a paper bag with “Terrific Taco” written on the side, the letter “o” being half visible. A green glow surrounds the top of her head and her legs, the color blending into the background of trees and bushes. Markings on the image indicate she’s being seen through a camera. At top right is a bar graph indicator in three different colors. At bottom right is a label marked “Undefined energy signature.” At bottom left is a display reading “SES Fine Focus: 4/3.1” The drawing is framed in a thick black border. The original image is rectangular. To make it square, a border at top and bottom is visible, with a slightly enlarged grayscale version of the original image sitting behind.
