First Appearance: "The Grift."
Quote: Becky: "I don't have the disk! Tell your leader he's wrong!"
QJ-14 A: "You know where it is."
Becky: "If I knew where it was, I think I'd tell you!"
Details: QJ-14s were once black ops soldiers who died while performing covert operations. The corrupt weapons dealer Stephan Bailey restored their bodies and limited brain function, placing implants in their temporal lobes to control their actions. When con woman Becky Dolan stole a disk which threatened to put a damper on his plans for attaining a defense contract, Stephan ordered two QJ-14s to murder her and bring the disk back to him. Though the soldiers were created to be virtually indestructible, Adam Kane managed to tap into their brains, trace the signal back to its source, and turn the QJ-14s against their creator.
From Tribune Entertainment's former Mutant X Lives website: SEAN BAILEY & THE QJ-14 PROPOSAL: Are you watching a lot of “Outer Limits” reruns lately? Because all of your recent cases have an over-abundance of creep factor. This one is no exception. Sean Bailey was once Major Bailey of the Special Op Forces. He racked up a lot of carnage points for Uncle Sam, let me tell you. Since those bloody days he’s moved on to the private sector, building a fortune in the hi-tech weapon biz. Who says our boys in green don’t learn a trade? A few years ago, Bailey made a pitch to the Defense Department to sell them the “ultimate warrior”. Called the QJ-14 Project, he claimed it would produce invulnerable human drones who could march through any disruption and not cease until their task was completed. Sounds reasonable, right? You’ve been involved with similar ideas. So have I. But here’s Bailey’s little twist on the scenario: he would create these particular super soldiers out of the bodies of dead ones! Throw the switch, Igor. How Baron Von Bailey acquired the knowledge or means to achieve this nightmare was never broached. The ghoul was quickly escorted out of the Pentagon as soon as the “reanimation” aspects of his proposal left his lips. I sat in on the meeting, Adam. It would have been comical, if he hadn’t been so authentically serious. I’ve forwarded Bailey’s dossier to you. It’s what you might suspect. A man’s man to the point of boredom. Three failed marriages, neglected children, cut-off parents. The only thing he’s ever been able to connect with was the military and killing. Surprise, surprise, he’s got real ego problems and anger issues. Did I mention he was a control freak? Psych evaluations paint a picture of a hardcore soldier who only felt remorse over the compatriots he lost on the battlefield. And what better way to connect with old friends than to raise them from the dead? Since you connected him to Daniel Foster’s political campaign, I can only reason that he’s backed it to get a congressman in his back pocket and his dreams of the QJ-14 army o’ zombies passed. The defense contract would be enormous. I’m sure you’ve already figured that out, however. Let me know how this one turns out. Oh, and by the way… A NYPD surveillance photo just crossed my desk. It shows a cop car being blown up by a random bolt of electricity. Brennan, right? I’ll expect a full explanation in the near future.
