Black ops are those operations done by the shade government, which operates in the shadows of the known government, and is far more powerful, but either of these arms of human civilization, are nowhere near the power, the energy, the wealth, etc. of the Shadow.
Shadow is now financing the Universe wide war between the Constellation and Rowdies Rangers, as well as supplying them with new ways of protecting themselves, and causing the Constellation forces to fall into fighting among themselves.
Shadow is the organization governments go to to make deals for off planet mining, trade, etc., for only Shadow has the ability and the ingenuity to make this real.
The governments sign agreements to pay Shadow, for all their help, equipment, supplies and transportation- from their target planet to Earth, with minerals, etc..
America owes Shadow in the neighborhood of 600 trillion dollars, gold, diamonds, etc., but this is a small amount to what they’re going to bring. from their target planet
Shadow works with the Designer, who is the creator of bio-habitats, that acutally work, energy suits to be able to be outside on the surface of the plane,t for hours at a time, and who builds recreation bio-habitats, for workers r&r, as well as to bring in alien races, to create challenges and games to allow them to get to know each other.
The Constellation, the Ancients and the Dank don’t like this, but they allow it, for they couldn’t stop it, even if they wanted to.
Shadow has a strong influence all over the Universe(s,) as a business organization, scientific organization, social organization, financial organization and medical organization.
Shadow has its own security, the main one, which is g-stryker, a past-present-future warrior, who is death, and can never be known, for he/she/it is never the same as he/she/it was, when anyone interacts with G-Stryker.
One of the main wars he/she/it worked in, was the Vietnam War, as protector, and assassin, as well as, destruction agent- on a large scale.
He/she/it is the Security Head of Shadow.
