Do you think that others are starting to think the Empire is becoming to big and unwieldly? Would checking out the loyalty of bureaucrats be a good use of Ally and Tisiphone?
I'd say seeing trillionaires and billionaires hanging from the gallows or in prison for life would dissuade anyone else from trying the same thing for a good while. There was also the Rish element - they wanted an Imperial sector or two to secede and weaken the Terran Empire as a prelude to another war.
I couldn't see Alicia and Tisiphone sitting in an office doing loyalty tests. Bo-ri-ng, not to mention there's an ethical and morale issue here. They've become the Empire's top detectives, so they'll be handed difficult, not-entirely-legal cases probably involving undercover work. Think Sherlock Holmes crossed with James Bond.
