FTL was a rival criminal organization of SD-6, lead by Quan Li. It had cells across the globe, similar to the Alliance of Twelve. Gareth Parkashoff was the leader of the FTL cell in Rabat, Iran (Reckoning). Arvine Sloane claimed that FTL trained the assassin Martin Shepard (Reckoning) but Sydney later believed he was trained by Calvin McCullough at SD-6 when she learns he was responsible for killing her fiancé Danny Hecht (Color-Blind) . Marshall Flinkman commented that FTL "was an enemy for, like, ever...," and FTL was effectively disposed of in early 2002 with the assassination of its leader (The Coup).
