"Adding to Creation"
In Character


Astyn Biological Engineering Corporation (ABEC) is the largest company both in Bakran space and of Bakran origin, dominating the economy by assets and total market share. ABEC is a biotechnology company that is at the forefront of the "bio-augmentation" field, supplying the Bakran Empire with augmentations for both the average citizen and the warrior. Here at ABEC, we strive to create a more perfect you, adding to creation one organ and nanobot surgery at a time. Nothing is going to stand in our way in making you live longer and become more prosperous, starting with a simple visit to one of our ABEC Clinics and you will be well on your way to a better life!

Originally marketing bioaugments and medical supplies, ABEC has transformed itself into a mega-conglomerate under the tutelage of business genius Dendlo Astyn, who has expanded the company's market to auger and "psyker" treatments, exoskeleton manufacturing, and even mining, all feeding ABEC’s desire for more bioaugmentation advances for the average customer. We are known by our customers as being easily accessible, with bioaugments cheap and widely available to the civilian market and highly proficient and effective in our government contract work as well.

Thank you for considering ABEC for your augmentation needs!

Clinics and Services




ABEC desires to move into new markets outside of Bakran space, and to do this the company has offered interstellar governments the opportunity to expand their biotechnology sector a well as bolster the economy. To do this, a prospective government signs a contract with ABEC saying they will pay half of the initial construction and operating costs of new ABEC Clinics, with half of them staffed by Bakrans and the other half by indigenous workers who will learn not only about biotechnology but also be part of ABEC's family. This Clinic will be in the client government's space, offering treatments that are widely available to the average populace, which could raise the quality of life dramatically at the Clinic's location.The Clinics themselves can be a variety of sizes, from a small operation in a nation to an entire starbase, the choice is yours!

Below are just some of the services that an average ABEC Clinic provides. The list will be constantly updated for marketing purposes.

Reprogenesis

The ability to fix diseases works better if they never find their way into the genes to begin with. Rather than genetically engineer someone, which is both illegal in many nations and comparatively expensive, ABEC doctors and scientists eliminate genetic illnesses altogether in the offspring before ontogenesis. ABEC trained doctors modify the male sperm or female eggs before fertilization, depending on who is carrying the genetic illness in question, and eliminate the sperms or eggs that are carrying the traits through the use of pharmaceuticals and if necessary nanobots.

Ontonogeny Procedures

Though genetic engineering is outlawed in Bakra, as well as abortion, the belief that life starts with fertilization allows for the visionaries at ABEC to follow a new path. Through therapy, a newborn can be "cultivated" inside the womb in a similar fashion to how a plant can be cut as it is grown, except additions are possible as well with augmentations and nanobot surgery to fight against diseases and defects within the womb. These are common procedures with extremely low risk to the mother and child in the womb, though there is a small percent of non-damaging failures during procedure.

Cognitive Regeneration

The body may keep living but without a brain it is useless. This fact has been recognized early in ABEC and our researchers have worked for years to combat it, and we now offer cognitive regeneration for those losing their mind! This therapy has cells "reprogrammed" using a conglomeration of pharmaceuticals to repair links in the brain and central nervous system that are damaged by cognitive diseases and nerve injuries (such as strokes, multiple sclerosis, and Alzheimer's disease). Though our medication primarily targets humans, talk to your friendly ABEC professional to have your alien needs met!

Apexification

This refers to "the rest" that we haven't covered already. This includes artificial stem cells to grown hearts, limbs, nerves, etc. Essentially, if can be grown in a vat or needs additional surgery then it is apexification. The term is derived from "becoming the apex" of what one can be, though if one looks at what is grown they will notice it's all repair work rather than creating a better body. This harkens back to the Bakran mindset of "making it last longer is better", and ABEC follows that to the letter. These are some of our most popular if diverse products, where we offer organs, flash cloning, and other procedures to make you the best you can be!

Artificial Organs


The most dramatic bioaugmentation procedures that ABEC provides are artificial organs. These silicon fabricated and metamaterial laced extensions of your body are almost universally accepted by our client's bodies, with 99.6% of our patients easily assimilating them into their bodies. Though mostly geared to carbon based and oxygen breathing humanoids, they can be adapted to most species given time and proper medical attention. Talk to an exobiologist or a medical professional about installing an artificial organ regardless of origin, or contact one of ABEC's free and highly trained consultants now!

Vego's Organ

Created by Dr. Annalita Vegos, her eponymous organ is an inner-ear enhancement that significantly marginalizes motion sickness and dizziness whilst improving the balance of the client. The organ was originally developed for the Bakran Navy to assist in fighter combat, but since then has been applied to civilian racing markets, spacer occupations, and even gymnasts! ABEC's warranty is hardly needed, since this combat tested design lasts for a lifetime!

Artificial Heart Implant

Half the size of a normal heart, this implant allows a person to survive the destruction of their primary heart either through disease or failure (though not at full effectiveness), breathe in low-oxygen environments with their primary heart, and also functions to boost blood flow to other areas of the body. This is used in every Bakran soldier, and only through ABEC can you get your very own Artificial Heart!

Hemocta

Hemocta is a very small artificial organ that imbeds itself in the wearers primary heart and increases the hemoglobin content of the wearer's blood, allowing them to carry oxygen more efficiently. This allows them to have increased stamina, popular among athletes or those with heart problems.


Flash Cloning


Though cloning is not an ABEC innovation, flash cloning is one of their achievements. Originally pioneered during the latter part of the First Uli War, flash cloning takes sample DNA from the host and combines it with artificial stem cells. Once it's reached a quarter size, it is surgically placed in the hosts' body where it continues to grow at a rapid rate. It maintains it's usefulness for a few months while a full artificial organ is being grown before it starts failing. This is ideal for emergency medical situations or while one is waiting for their own ABEC organ to be grow. Since wholesale cloning is forbidden in Bakra, ABEC only provides cloning benefits for organs.


Procedures


Requiring extensive therapy as well as training, these procedures are long-term investments that one can make into their bodies. At first they may not show immediate results, but after weeks or even months of training and personal growth these medical miracles can improve your life where ordinary artificial organs can't! Naturally some do better than others, but unlike most artificial organs these procedures give you ability rather than health.

Optical Capillary Correction

"Correction" is a bit misleading, as it implies those with eyesight problems should consider an Optical Capillary Correction. Rather, even those with perfect or even extreme eyesight can receive this treatment to improve their vision and improve (to some species) one of the most important senses. By damaging the eye with a laser, steroids and nanobots work in sync to rebuild the optical nerves, recreating the entire visual spectrum into a sharper, more focused picture. Though this sounds intimidating, in Bakra this common procedure yields 100% satisfaction guarantee!

Dendrite Superconductivity Enhancement

Both the Optical Capillary Correction and Dendrite Superconductivity Enhancement are used by the Bakran armed forces to give its pilots an edge in combat. Whilst visual treatment improves the senses of the pilots in question, the Dendrite Superconductivity Enhancement improves reflexes. Though the entire procedure is complex, it can be boiled down to an ABEC specialist inserting a genetic formula into one's bloodstream and having the patient's body adapt to it, creating very fast reflexes in a matter of weeks.


Additional ABEC Investments


ABEC doesn't just build bodies, it builds bridges. The purpose of clinics is to start this bridge building, providing services and education to other star nations. These medical services require infrastructure and a certain amount of time for other nations to be a part of this infrastructure. Those that take part in these extended programs provide more resources and technology into the partner nation and allows ABEC to build a larger network of nations throughout the galaxies. We recommend that those who have had a sustained partnership with ABEC, through clinics, continuous orders, or other dealings, for at least three months, or having a positive relationship with Bakra, to apply to be part of these investments. There is only so much that ABEC can manage at any one time!

Regional Distributors

Regional distributors receive supplies directly from ABEC manufactories in the Romera galaxy to distribute to both the host nation's clinics and clinics in their stellar region. A large boost to anyone's planetary economy, some regional distributors are known to partner intimately with ABEC on future developments, becoming the first nations to receive new treatments and getting the cheapest transportation packages.

Research Centers

The next logical step for any partner nation with ABEC, research centers are the pride of the company. Complete with state of the art laboratories, codexes of scientific research that has taken years for scouts, emissaries, and scientists to assemble, and heavy security to make sure none of the equipment falls into the wrong hands. Those that apply and operate research centers must know that these are prime targets for interstellar crime organizations as well as terrorists, not to mention the volatility of some experiments. However the benefits greatly outweigh the potential consequences, with groundbreaking research by both Bakran and the host nation's scientists boons to the nations and ABEC. To apply, we strongly recommend that the host nation provide a location that is foreign, if not outright hostile to sentient carbon based lifeforms, particularly humans. Worlds with non-oxygen atmospheres, aggressive flora and/or fauna, and changing or dangerous terrain are preferred. This allows us at ABEC to test new developments in strange environments, ensuring both durability and quality, not to mention making our facilities more remote from prying eyes.

Bulk Orders


Here at ABEC we recognize that many clients do not want to start off with outright partnerships, and we respect that. Therefore, we provide "bulk" services, large government contracts worth millions or even billions in an effort to cement relationships with other nations. These go beyond simple building blocks and gestures of goodwill, bulk orders can come in a time of great need by a nation in a medical or military crisis with short supplies. Need artificial stem cells to regrow limbs or fight disease? What about new organs used to squash a terrorist controlled virus? ABEC is here and ready to help, and in a few short months or even weeks your order can be processed and in orbit.

Artificial Stem Cells

The brick and mortar of most stellar nation's medical services, stem cells are not the controversial medical experiment they once were. Rather than using life tissue, artificial stem cells are silicon based life forms that act just as any host body's cells would. Using a closely guarded secret mixture, the cells have a 99% acceptance rate of the host and are both cleanly disposed and easy to control, the staple of any Bakran hospital or doctor. They are extremely cheap and usually sold in large quantities, sometimes tailored to fight diseases and others to grow over scarred or removed tissue.

Vat Grown Organs

The specialty of ABEC, grown organs were once the most expensive piece of medical equipment in Bakra. After years of research, ABEC transformed them into items available to the middle class, a staple of the family medical record. Now they are not just used in family life, but also for more specialized roles such as freighter pilots or station workers, and even more widely used by the militaries of the galaxies. They can be in any size, most any role, and to many specifications, the choice is yours! Simply give us a blueprint or outline of what you desire in your own artificial organ and we will ship thousands or even millions to you!

"Alternative" Products
Secret In Character


If you are here, we know you don't want to be known. Sometimes when the laws of the galaxy don't agree with you it means you have to go to drastic measures. We say you shouldn't have to resort to violence or even more illegal activities other than possessing progress. In Bakra cloning and genetic engineering are banned, as in many other nations, but ABEC recognizes the relativity of morality and legal systems. Even if these are legal in your nation, they are not for ABEC and we would very much appreciate it if you kept these transactions to yourself.

Full Genome Cloning

The open secret of vat grown organs is that they are a very fine line that once crossed into full genome cloning turn into taboo. Why add to a man full of artificial organs when we can build you an entire one, totally subservient and loyal to you? Do you want to build your own breed of super soldier, or simply a secret army to attack your enemies with? Whether it's cloning a dead friend or creating an interstellar menace, we are here to make your dreams realized.

Genetic Engineering Templates

Genetic engineering, while not as controversial as cloning, is still a gray area in many societies. ABEC retains many "research facilities" that conduct genetic engineering experiments in order to create better and cheaper organs and conduct safer procedures, but what happens after the testing no has to know. We would prefer it if we could still gleam some profit from this testing, or even create the guise of testing if it means suiting your alteration needs.




Order Forms and Applications
Out of Character


So far you get the general sway of things: ABEC is a massive biotechnology and augmentation corporation that seeks to expand it's operations through partnerships. These partnerships take the form of commercial orders to clinics, and later on additional investments that can deepen the experience of NSFT. I would encourage people to mention ABEC in their RPs, though I would like to be made aware of these happenings. I would like this to be both a storefront, setting, and experience for NSFT. I have had a lot of fun making this and using ABEC as an analysis of my nation's economy, and I would love to share this with others. My only "rule" is that to respect each other and this thread. If you only wish to use it as a storefront, fantastic! If you wish to mention it in an RP or factbook, amazing! This is first and foremost something to deepen the experience of NSFT by having a "big corporate name" to mention.

Second, I would appreciate thought and care put into these applications. Be specific, expand on "Planet or Station Host for Blank" and don't be afraid of "Additional Considerations". Share with us the joys of your creation and sate our love of info dumps!

Greetings! Provided you agree not to breed giant arthropods, giant insects, giant humans, giant reptiles, or giant mammals; it is allowed for your film to do business in our land. The 1957 'incident' in which a giant bear mutated by atomic fallout wrecked Gangster Port and needed the military to destroy it is in our minds. However, your medical applications intrigue us. Therefore we offer the following:
A. Tax exemption for one year to allow your business grow, B. Onsite emergency field hospital for both humans and animals in the event of an accident. C. To be allowed to explain the public by Cable TV 12-The Science Channel-that your products cannot harm them or domestic pets.Also, to show how your products will benefit both humans and domestic pets What say you?

TO: Sales Dept, Astyn Biological Engineering Corporation
FROM: Director McMullen, Bio-Sciences Division, Ximean Ministry of Science
SUBJ: Purchasing

MSG BEGINS:

Your organization has come to our attention. We consider ourselves an advanced civilization when it comes to biological manipulations; however, some of the items and services are novel and intriguing to us.

Artificial Stem Cell Order Form

Nation/Organization Name: Ximean Bio-Sciences Division

Artificial Stem Cells (in thousands of tons): 4 per annum

Additional Considerations: You stipulate that your artificial stem cells are silicon-based. If they are to be infused into a human (and therefore carbon-based) subject, do they require in vivo silicon supplementation, or will the new tissue gradually become replaced by the host's organic biochemistry?

Vat Grown Organ Order Form

Nation/Organization Name: Ximean Bio-Sciences Division

Type(s) of Organ(s): Eight-chambered hearts

Amount: 150 for this first order

Additional Considerations: Ideally, we would like both ventricles and both atria of the normal human heart to be duplicated. The idea here is to achieve circulatory redundancy without adding unnecessary vascular complexity.

Director McMullen of the Ximean Bio Sciences Division,

We are glad to see there are others that share our drive for biological sciences. We are one of the few interstellar organizations that practice exclusively in biological augmentation (at least that we know of) so seeing others in these fields is always an event.

Regarding the artificial stem cells manufactured by ABEC: your second guess is correct. The artificial stem cells are, in ways that I confess I do not totally understand, are "preprogrammed" to indoctrinate themselves into the new host's tissue almost immediately, conforming to the host's cell type. I hope that answers your question well enough.

Your considerations on the hearts are in working order. It is a pleasure doing business with you. We hope for further partnerships in the future.

Official Government Communique
From the Office of Neil Jaeger, Secretary of Foreign Affairs,
Federated Union of Democratic Colonies
To Astyn Biological Engineering Corporation (ABEC)


Clinic Application
Nation Name: Federated Union of Democratic Colonies
Planet or Station Host for Clinic: Tannhauser
Additional Considerations: The Capital World of Tannhauser is the political, cultural, technological, and economic center of the nation. A location on Tannhauser is the best way to reach the 30 billion citizens of the Democratic Colonies. While the people of the Democratic Colonies are new to the types of services that ABEC provides, as they are new to many of the technologies that the wider galaxy has to offer, they have shown a willingness to adapt over time and gradually accept the advanced technologies now available to them.

Vat Grown Organ Order Form
Nation/Organization Name: Federated Union of Democratic Colonies, Department of Defence
Type(s) of Organ(s): Vego's Organ, Artificial Heart Implant, Hemocta
Amount: 5,000 Vego's Organs, 15,000 Artificial Heart Implants, 25,000 Hemoctas
Additional Considerations: These organs are to be implanted into personnel of the DC Army Special Operations Corps and DC Navy Special Warfare Corps in order to study the benefits derived from the artificial organs in military applications. 5,000 personnel are to receive all three organs, 10,000 are to receive Artificial Heart Implants and Hemoctas, and 10,000 are to receive only Hemoctas.

Regards,
Neil Jaeger
