Among the arrestees was Admiral [[William Ross]]. He was murdered by FSA agent [[Margo Dempsey]] in retaliation for the death of her husband [[Clark Dempsey|Clark]] in a shuttle crash which had been engineered by Section 31 to assassinate a Federation diplomat. The FSA and Starfleet later determined that following her husband's death, Dempsey had taken steps to ensure that the information did not show up in any of the background investigations the FSA conducted of agents who would be guarding Section 31 operatives taken into custody. Following Ross' death, the FSA worked with Starfleet to revamp its procedures, with anyone who would be coming in contact with those Section 31 operatives subjected to complete background checks. Furthermore, the list of people approved to have contact with these operatives was limited and required approval from top officials in the Federation government. ({{n|TNG|Available Light}})

:''It appears that the organization has gone through several name changes during its existence. As the TOS novel Memory Prime lists it as the "Federation Security Service" in the 2260s, the "Federation Security Legion" in the 2280s, and finally the "Federation Security Agency" by the 2380s. This is not dissimilar to the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) which was originally established as the Bureau of Investigation (BOI) in 1908, before it changed its name to the United States Bureau of Investigation (USBI) in 1932, and eventually to its current name Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in 1935.''
