Catherine Glimp (b. 2??? - d. 2???) was a professor of Computer Science who would (likely posthumously) leak enough information on the Space Defense System to the SLDF to allow for Operation LIBERATION to succeed.


Leaked filsEdit

When SLDF forces captured Nirasaki in 2775, they discovered the Nirasaki Computers Collective research facility abandoned, with all electronic files and hard copies destroyed. However, a small portable computer belonging to one of the researchers, Professor Glimp, was discovered hidden in a closet. Professor Glimp, knowing she had to find some way to help the SLDF overcome their own defense system, had stored a treasure trove of data on the SDS' control system into the computer and hid it, hoping it might be found eventually. The information Professor Glimp and her colleges left behind allowed the SLDF to create an electronic counter-measure system which would jam the SDS' communication channels and disrupt targeting systems. The system worked perfectly in its first test during the invasion of New Home, and would go on to provide the SLDF a much easier time liberating other Hegemony worlds.[1]
