||Early Plastic Surgery, reconstruction only.
||Moderate Plastic Surgery, early body-sculpting, basic disguises. The surgery
is undetectable, but limited, disguises are imperfect unless the individuals
are very similar. [No height modifications, +/- up to 10 kg].
||Advanced Plastic Surgery, body sculpting, realistic disguises as anyone
belonging within the appropriate height and weight range who belongs to the same
human subspecies, and fully functional (sterile) sex-changes. It is now possible
to change skin color, apparent gender, height and weight (within limits). Change
blood type, but not genetic type. Fur and unusually colored eyes and hair
(purple, metallic blue...) are also possible. [+/- up to 5 cm in height, +/-up
to 20 kg].
||Bioengineered Implants, fully fertile sex changes, full disguise (retinal
scan, genetic profile, finger prints, etc). Early vat grown implants are
developed here. These early vat-grown implants can enhance normal function
(Light intensification, enhanced smell and hearing) or they can add wholly new
functions such as full spectrum vision, normal-looking skin as tough as Jack
armor, magnetic sense, gills.... However, each implant can have only a single
additional function. Modified eyes with the capacity for both IR and telescopic
vision are not possible at these tech levels. All Vat-grown implants are fully
living tissue which becomes a normal part of the subjects body. Purely cosmetic
changes like tails, claws, cat-like eyes and similar oddities are possible. At
this tech level a human can be made to look like any of the humanoid Star Trek
aliens (old or new). [+/- up to 15 cm in height, +/- any weight].
||By TL 13 an average human can be disguised as a normal member of most other
minor human races, a Vilani could be disguised as a Darrian). At these TLs
Genetically engineered viruses as used alongside surgery to perform most
||Undetectable, genetic disguises, advanced vat-grown implants and genetic
modifications (IR eyes, etc... ). Change height by up to +/- 30 cm. At these TLs
genetically engineered viruses have replaced surgery in most applications.
Advanced vat-grown implants can have multiple functions, so modified eyes could
be designed to see both in the infrared and have telescopic capacity, as well
as seeing ordinary visual light).
||Any human can be undetectably disguised as a normal member of any of the
human minor races (a Darrian could even be disguised as a Geonee). [+/- up to
40 cm in height].
||Memory dupe to prepared targets (basic memories, no details). By this TL
impersonation is almost impossible to detect unless specific precautions have
been taken to avoid it. To Dupe memories the target must be scanned for 6 full
hours. This process is non-invasive, and can be done while the target is
||[Ancient artifacts only] Advanced Bioengineering: At this TL humans
can be undetectably disguised as most alien species, including Aslan, Droyne,
or K'kree. Sentients can also be transformed into ordinary looking, but fully
sentient animals, or into life-forms which combine the traits and appearance of
several existing life-forms. At this TL all such changes are fully reversible,
and take no more than a month to perform.
