So, in the mid 25th century, humanity has become a space faring race, with about 10,000 planets under control of Earth. There are many different ecosystems on different planets, from normal ones, like Earth, to the craziest ones you can imagine.
On the planet Oceanus, a civil war has erupted between two powerful clans, the Skillsi and the Kar’Qom. The Kar’Qom are backed up by a rival of the humans, the Qualian Star Empire, which plans to annex the sovereign planet.
The humans start helping the Skillsi, but there is a problem. The planet Oceanus is mostly aquatic, with only a few islands larger than 100 miles. The human soldiers will need to get genetic alterations to be effective soldiers, but in the UTF there is a law that states “No major changes can be made to a human being through genetic modifications” which means they can’t add extra organs or make the person miss the appearance of a human.
So, considering these laws, how could you make soldiers that could operate underwater?
- The majority of the cities are between 160 and 300 feet underwater, where light can mostly reach.
