The prologue of Behind the Gloves is here - please read!
The elusive "Department Sigma" is mentioned many times in the canon books, and the results of their work (and mishaps) are mentioned several times in the show (e.g. Dust, and the Ironheart debacle). Indeed, when it comes to "secret projects" in the Corps, it seems they're behind everything. But who was "Department Sigma," and what were they really up to?
Perhaps surprisingly, they weren't the "evil" outfit the show leads you to believe. Rather, the inspiration for their work came directly from the Vorlons themselves, who took Psi Corps director Kevin Vacit, and his aid Natasha Alexander (Lyta's grandmother) onto their ship - and showed them the long, difficult path necessary for humanity to defeat the Shadows. Telepaths were at the center of the plan.
Director Johnston assassinated Natasha Alexander.
Under subterfuge, Department Sigma plowed ahead anyway, knowing nothing less was at stake than humanity itself.
