Lurtor was deeply concerned about the collars. There were good reasons why the guests are fitted with one right away. They have proved very valuable in monitoring the guests to make sure they stay out of trouble.
But still the idea that with one word, no, one thought, he could end the existence of anyone wearing them in a second. This bothered Lurtor greatly. He has taken up the teachings of the Bladed Sun. He was to protect the weak. Show those who do bad a better way. The guest program could be a great program in giving those who everyone has given up on a second chance. But those collars.
What he really needed was a few more steps in the collars. He needed the ability to knock out someone instead of liquefying them. He recently ran into one where he felt bad for them, even thought he could help them. But they were holding hostages. The needed to be stopped. The collars allowed him to identify them, but only the step of final death unless he tried to fight them directly. And how many casualties would have been caused by that fight. What’s worse is that some of their guests have the ability to nano plague or annihilate things. In those cases he currently couldn’t chance leaving it to a fight, even if he thought he could win.
FLIT was already researching ways to expand the collars use to non lethal uses. But how long would that take. How many would he be forced to terminate before they were able to do this. All he knew was he hoped someone would figure out something sooner than later. The use of the current collars troubled him greatly.
