I'm not sure where the planet Bube
might fit best, perhaps in this connection.
What this science might accomplish when it really got going .. For over 150 years, Gaheris has guarded the vault of records and genetic samples that is named Beyond Lies the Gate That Passes From Humanity
. He stands 3.5 metres tall, broad-shouldered, with three heads resembling mastiffs, apart from the keen intelligence with which they inspect visitors.
Gaheris is likely beyond defeat in personal combat, though he wouldn't contemplate a direct attack until the base's other defences all failed. He is a seasoned tactician, expert system operator and charming conversationalist, well-read and with keen insights into history. He might ask about word of his siblings Gareth, Goliath, Kevin and Felicity.
(Gareth has four arms.)
(Much later, the heroes might find one of these individuals lying in stasis on a technological bier.)
He refuses access to the vault except in a circumstance that would convince him to abandon his post, which over a Galactic War and the destruction of the nation that created and taught him, has never happened. However, he can talk circumspectly and examine the catalogues about the contents of the collection, which in itself may be valuable information.

The most impressive of the original majoris, with the exercises, nutrition and medical care suited to their particular needs, developed physical ability scores of 17, b-majors favouring Constitution. Their descendants wouldn't exceed a 16, though they still receive a Durability increase appropriate to their greater body size.
He wasn't the pinnacle of their technology. That would be t-persons. This post has been edited by uncle_jimbo on Dec 29 2018, 03:32
