- "Tanks for the memories. Reality is so much sweeter."
- a Rawanna III Laboratory Constructs saying.
- "Tanks for the memories. Reality is so much sweeter."
- The Rawanna III Laboratory Constructs are genetically modified cells grown in tanks until ready for birth. Meant to be the ideal super soldier the Rawanna still have a long way to go before they achieve that goal. In the meantime these special individuals strive to fit in and prove their value as citizens.

When certain rumors came to the attention of Federation Intelligence that the Rawanna people seemed to be purchasing genetic samples from a wide range of different species on the black market they became concerned. As a result an in depth investigation was authorized and conducted.
As a result of this investigation it is believed that as the Dominion War grew and expanded its sphere of influence the Rawanna people became fearful, verging on panic and the government took drastic action. Since their people were for the most part pacifists they needed to find another solution than trying to make soldiers of their own people.
Many ideas were considered and rejected until they learned about genetic manipulation. A clandestine search for more information resulted in their getting extensive historical files from the Federation and other sources. Files that detailed the various successes and failures of numerous different species including the Eugenics Wars on Earth.
They immediately agreed on this as their best possible solution, selected an isolated island with no population and constructed a large underground facility for their scientists to work in. Then they hired certain questionable sources to obtain the necessary specialized equipment they would need in order to enact their plan. This included the gathering of genetic material from a number of different species including the following 8 species Betazoid, Brekkian, El-Aurian, Lumerian, Risian, Ullian, Vulcan and Zakdorn. Samples from other species were also obtained and used as well.
Most of their experiments into genetic manipulation were complete failures but they learned from them. Altered their techniques and refined the process until their success rate rose to 98.436%.
Federation Intelligence is unsure but based on various sources it is believed that they are still conducting experiments and obtaining new alien tissue samples with which to work with. If this is correct then there does not seem to be any end in sight for this experimental program.
These constructs (super soldiers) have no representation in the government and are considered to be the legal property of the Rawanna people. Even with this they are treated just like anyone else, just taught from their earliest age that they exist to serve and protect the general population of Rawanna III and all of their people.
As a species they resemble humans but with black hair, dark eyes and tanned complexions. For the most part they are slim, athletic and fit with a wide variety in height and body shape. Occasionally blonde and red hair crops up as well as black skin tones. These are a result of the genetic quirks resulting from mixing human DNA with theirs. In some cases these unusual characteristics would seem to confirm the presence of other alien DNA within theirs.
As with most intelligent humanoid species they have a very complex system with specialized organs, and unique hormones, chemicals and enzymes. They are typical humanoids with most of the physical, mental and biological medical problems that seem to plague most humanoids.
When it comes to the altered genetic creations much has to do with the various DNA samples used in their creation. As a result there is a lot of variety since each and every one known seems to be completely different from each other. That being said most managed to inherit inner eyelid, stronger bodies and fast metabolism. Most specimens have a low pain threshold and high energy consumption during use of their psionic abilities. Due to fast metabolism and high energy consumption they all need lot of nutrients.
As a whole they all tend to be fairly stable mentally with about half having some kind of minor mental health issue and about one in twenty five tend to be prone to multiple mental health issues. Some so profound as to make them dangerous to the public around them.
Since most of the DNA was borrowed from species that have some type or variation of psionic ability, almost all of the specimens created in this super soldier program have some version, type or combination of ESP abilities. Strength and ability to use those abilities vary radically with each subject.
As with the Rawanna people they believe in Pau Nau, the spirit of the world and Nou-ia the spirit of the waters his wife.
They have many tales and stories about how Pau Nau met, fell in love and married Nou-ia. From their union came the world and everything in it.
For the most part they have adapted and live among the rest of the Rawanna species in peace and harmony. Working and acting just like any other citizen. Ready for when the call may come that they are needed.
They have been raised to enjoy the same forms of artistic expression that the rest of the Rawanna species has. Even encouraged to express themselves in like manner if they feel the inclination.
In this regard they are just the same as their creators, adopting and absorbing the social mannerisms used by those around them that they need for successful daily interactions.
They rely completely on the Rawanna government for any technology they may need. However about 15% of them have become members of the scientific community and work on either improving or creating new technology.
They rely completely on the Rawanna government for their food, housing, medical care and other needs. They are too few in numbers to be able to develop their own commercial needs.
Most of them, approximately 80% have been assigned to work with the emergency response and environmental protection force. Here their enhanced mental and physical abilities can best be put to use assisting the population and protecting their environment.
Federation Intelligence Files
Mailea Labria attended the Academy, graduated and served as an officer in Starfleet. It was only after this that Federation Intelligence learned that the Rawanna people may be involved in genetic manipulation. An in depth examination of her medical records would seem to indicate that this is true.
Federation Intelligence believes they have managed to get DNA samples from the following species. Risans because their DNA is ideal as a base race for their strong body structure and internal biology capable of forming bonds with other races DNA. Betazoids for their ability to control many body functions (heart, respiratory, circulatory, excretory, endocrine), Brekkian for their unique ability to provide a limited natural generation of a bio-electrical discharge from the hands, El-Aurians for extraordinarily sensitive to disturbances in the space/time continuum and ability to remember the original version of history if a change is made in time. Lumerians for ability to form a psionic bond with another person, giving him/her the option to "dump" bad feelings and other "mental waste" onto the bond partner, Ullians for their telepathy, Vulcans for strong body and inner eyelid, or nictitating membrane, which protects their vision from bright lights and Zakdorn for their unique ability to use strategy and tactics as reaction not willing process.
This is an original Starbase 118 species created to fill in the backstory of the super soldier program they created called the Rawanna III Laboratory Constructs program.
