And of course, the Bifrost’s Resident AI: HEIMDALL

Q Branch are also the people who reverse engineer any advanced technologies that fall into SHIELDs hands. The local Branch Head is Commander (“Doctor”) Leopold Fitz. Doctor Fitz has been responsible for some groundbreaking technological discoveries in his own right and has joined the crew of the Bifrost on its maiden voyage to see what marvels they will bring home.
