"And I do not trust you, Senator Crawford. You are entirely too glib and entirely too strong. And I do not find that I want any more of your vodka."
- – Menshikov to Lee Crawford
Menshikov met with US Senator Lee Crawford at his Antebellum revival home to discuss the Metasensory Regulation Authority. Menshikov believed that the military use of Telepaths by individual member states of the Earth Alliance should be allowed and did not support the Metasensory Regulation Authority as proposed by Senator Crawford.
Eventually telepaths, including Desa Alexander, were able to force Menshikov to go silent and quietly retire.
