Experimental Technical Readout: The Society (abbreviated XTRO: Society), is a fan produced TRO created by Battletech fan Maingunnery. Written as a book covering the renegade Clan caste known as the Society and their units they have produced since their failed Scientist Rebellion during the Wars of Reaving in the 3070s.

Included in this book included profiles new units produced exclusively for the Society warriors which include; Battle Armor, ProtoMechs, Combat Vehicles, BattleMechs/OmniMechs, and Aerospace Units.


In Battletech canon history, Scientist castes who had formed the Society did not survive the Wars of the Reaving during the Jihad era. This book presented can be thought of a "What If", the Society had secretly survived the conflict in secret and had continued to survive in the shadows of the Inner Sphere well into the Dark Age Era of Battletech.
