I think it would be more interesting to release it. We liive with fear, with live with uncertainty. Certainty is weakness. Fear makes us strong. That's a much more Trek way of dealing with the idea.
No Orwellian attempts to conceal the truth. No paranoid security measures. Just a situation where everybody knows it and refuses to let it influence them.
