You may be looking for SSSS or SSSSSSS.

The Space Security Service or "SSS" was a military force circa 4000. (TV: The Daleks' Master Plan) Its purpose was to gather intelligence on behalf of the Solar System and when necessary, eliminate threats to that safety. They considered the Daleks paramount amongst these threats, and it wasn't uncommon for SSS agents to find themselves in battle against them.

Overview[edit | edit source]

According to one account, the SSS had its headquarters in Central City on Earth, where computers held records of the chemical makeup of every person in the Solar System. (TV: The Daleks' Master Plan) According to another, this may have been a lie. Instead, the SSS base was actually inside an unknown mountain on an unknown world, with contact through a more public location on each member world. (PROSE: The Outlaw Planet) Certainly, one publicly-known "branch location" was in Carrington City on Micawber's World. (PROSE: Placebo Effect)

The head of the SSS was Colonel Marc Forest who, with the help of the super-computer Compuvac, recruited a team made of Kurt Soren, David Carson, Sara Kingdom and Agent Seven among thousands of candidates. (PROSE: The Outlaw Planet)

Agents wore uniforms and carried blasters. (TV: Mission to the Unknown) The Service had ranks. First Rank was achieved some time after an agent joined the service and Second Rank had greater responsibility. (TV: The Daleks' Master Plan) One agent, Marc Cory, carried two documents, one giving him license to kill, the other the power to enlist any person to aid him in his mission. This included civilians. (TV: Mission to the Unknown)

Agents could not afford to have sentiment or compassion. Sara Kingdom, a Space Security agent, killed her own brother, Bret Vyon, also an agent, on orders. Though Kingdom got her orders from Mavic Chen, the Guardian of the Solar System, the Space Security considered no one above suspicion, including Chen himself. (TV: The Daleks' Master Plan) Serving the SSS was a lifelong commitment, with each agent dedicating all of their time to the defending the Solar System. For this reason, female members of the SSS are required to undergo a procedure which renders them unable to bear children. (AUDIO: An Ordinary Life)

SSS agents were trained in dakaro, a kind of karate which used pressure to cause spine dislocation. (COMIC: Sara Kingdom: Space Security Agent)

History[edit | edit source]

The Space Security Service was "newly formed" at the time of the Mars Probe 7 incident in the 20th century and was headed by General George Carrington. (PROSE: The Ambassadors of Death) It was also known as the Space Security Department or simply Space Security. (TV: The Ambassadors of Death)

According to one account, Sara joined the Space Security Service at the age of seven. (AUDIO: The Sontarans)

According to another account, Sara joined the Service soon after her twenty-first birthday (PROSE: Top Secret) when she was chosen by Colonel Marc Forest and Compuvac as an agent in charge of the Space Security Service's field operations. (PROSE: The Outlaw Planet) To join the organisation, she had to sacrifice her capacity to have children. (AUDIO: An Ordinary life) Both of her brothers also later joined. (TV: The Daleks' Master Plan, AUDIO: The Destroyers)

For her first mission, Sara was sent to divert the plans of the Golden Dalek from Earth to Barzilla by spreading news of its gold mines amongst Dalek spies. She was successful and the Dalek forces were annihilated, an achievement for which she was praised. (PROSE: The Outlaw Planet) Early in her career, she was sent on a mission with fellow SSS agents Jason Corey, Mark Seven and her brother David, who was kidnapped by the Daleks. (AUDIO: The Destroyers)

Sara was sent to Vara to rescue the kidnapped Professor Lomberg and thus keep the secret of the formula of a new metal from the Daleks, who could use it for a new outer casing which would make them unstoppable. She sneaked into the Dalek slave camps, found the professor and helped him give the Daleks the wrong formula, causing an explosion and foiling the Daleks' plans. (COMIC: Sara Kingdom: Space Security Agent)

Charged with investigating the leak of confidential information jeopardising the security of Earth strategic bases, Sara discovered that the upgraded Golden Emperor was able to read thoughts through radio waves. She used Earth's scientists as bait whilst human forces attacked and wiped out the Emperor's fleet. (COMIC: The Brain Tappers) Mark Seven wrote a file about the mission which Mavic Chen consulted when he and Bret Vyon unexpectedly met a future version of Sara in 3999, when she was supposed to be stationed on Venus. As a result of her older self's actions, Sara received a surprise promotion and was re-assigned to Earth. (AUDIO: The Guardian of the Solar System)

By one account, the SSS had fought in the Great War against the Dalek Empire alongside the Combined Galactic Resistance. (PROSE: The Whoniverse
