Fleet Channel Gold Alpha is a communications frequency and encryption protocol used by Earth Fleet vessels to send important information to each other. It is used when secrecy and speed are both important, as anything on this channel has the highest priority to be decrypted and read. It can be used for text, data, and video calls.
Behind the ScenesEdit
The name is an homage to both "Fleet Comline Alpha" from Babylon Five and "Gold Channel" from Battlestar Galactica Classic. Both served pretty much the same role on their shows as Gold Alpha does for TI: a cool term for a made-up communications channel.
