    We actually had it in our campaign that we stumbled upon a fully intact STC on Aubrey's Anvil, trapped with a bunch of AdMech Explorers inside a Necron Tesseract prison.  We took it straight to Mars, abandoning everything that we were doing, and when we got there we just handed it over.  Thing is, the AdMech would kill for something like this, they'd wipe out a sector for it, and all the other factions that exist that may want it too.  So, all you can do is hand it over and hope for something good to come out of it, which did happen.  
     
    That said, it will take hundreds of years to figure out what the STC can do and what patterns it can make, not to mention the maybe thousands of years to decide what exactly the AdMech WANTS to do with the thing.  The return of an intact STC may seem like its the salvation of humanity but in the grim dark future it really only causes more infighting and civil wars on Mars as powerful Magos try to decide what it is they want to do.

    When it comes to inquisitors vs rogue traders, its not so much an issue of necessarily revoking a warrant as it is an inquisitor going out of his or her way to really make things difficult for the dynasty.  Yeah, Inquisitor X can't do anything about the Warrant or the fact that in the Expanse Rogue Trader A speaks with the voice of the Emperor.  That said, the tithes and shipments headed back through Port Wander can be subject to searches and seizures which effectively cut off profits from reaching the dynasty at large, making trade difficult and cutting off resources for repairs and acquisitions out in the Expanse.  If that goes on long enough, other RT's are likely to step in and take advantage.
     
    Can RT's get around this?  Of course, but a well connected Inquisitor is likely to be a major pain and bring about the downfall of a dynasty without touching the warrant directly.
