Agenda and Questions For Rogue Drones
All this data is potentially out of date, and should be taken with a truckload of salt
This research is focused on us trying to form a clear Agenda for when dealing with Rogue Drones and to work out in advance the types of questions we should ask as well as the phrasing of the question. The sequence of questions, grouping of questions into related topics and even grammer should be considered.
The Agenda for asking question to Rogue Drones should be as follows. The questions should be broken down into groups as follows.
- History, all questions relating to Rogue Drone history should be in this group.
- Ancient Races, all questions relating to Talcon, Yan Jung, Takmahl, Sleepers & Jovians should be in this group.
- Technology/Hardware, all questions relating to Rogue Drone technology should be in this group.
- Culture/Software, all questions relating to Rogue Drone culture, society & intelligence should be in this group.
- Goals/Objectives, all questions relating to Rogue Drone short term and long terms goals and objectives should be in this group.
The purpose of these groupings is to make the questions as logical and organised as possible so that the Rogue Drones have the best chance of understanding the questions and to reduce the chance of any kind of error or incompatibility due to the formatting or ordering of the questions.
