So there's a 4th option and that is that Q's still legit but might have made an error in interpretation or was trying to put focus on a certain thing for a certain reason, even as a point of distraction - look here, while something else is going on over there - Chinese hacking in this case, and isn't it factual that that did take place where there was a hacked missile launch or not..?

For the crew to launch a missile don't they have to have PAL code from national command authority and isn't it that code that actually arms a warhead? I mean even if missile launch can be effected from the boats authority only are they not shooting a dud?
And yes any alternative answer has HUGE import across the entire triad because it means rouge commander and possibly crew.
Anyone ever read "Red Star Rising" ?
Some sort of dead hand switch or mode would have to be initiated from TACAMO making sole launch authority with the boat as if national command no longer existed.

You're a lot closer than I'm willing to discuss here. Lets just leave it at there is always a human element involved.
