Premise


Genetic engineering has been banned on Earth and its colonies ever since the Ninety Percent Wars... But its creations have been kept in cold storage against a desperate need. Ten years ago, a renegade genius, Dr. Moon, stole nineteen embryos and escaped to Salairt II, a desolate planet on the far side of Kirin'zha space. He began to create the seeds of a society that would someday supplant humanity.

But plans rarely go as expected, and Dr. Moon is no exception to the rule. He has been captured by bounty hunters. Now his children, only ten years old, must survive without his help. But even as they struggle, their eyes will be fixed on the stars... Their birthright.


This is a science fiction setting based heavily on Star Trek, specifically the Enterprise series, but I am doing a fair amount of 'filing off serial numbers', so the technology and background elements will vary considerably.

It is inspired by the Augments story arc in Enterprise. Specifically, I had a hard time believing that super-intelligent people would resort to the idiotic violence and chest-beating that ran rampant through the episodes. (Borderland, Cold Station 12, The Augments) Having been enjoying fiction that aimed at more intelligent characters (Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality I thought it might be interesting to try writing a 'road not taken' fanfic.
