Background[edit | edit source]
I had never seen this billet used in any broadcast, pro fiction or fan fiction Trek prior to my using it in "Belonging". I interpreted the billet's duties from the unnamed Kzinti A-T officer in Larry Niven's "The Warriors," the 1967 Known Space story that introduced the Kzinti.
