Allright @Matthew its question time again and this time I think its one that people will actually be interested in (apologies if youve allready answered this somewhere else)
1) If the Lazarus tech is illegal does this mean that the Lazarus men are considered criminals for having the gloves or are they only breaking the law if they actually use them? Will Laz be arrested when he gets back to Hub space?
2) (completely unrelated question but Im interested) How did the Basallisk Empire start a 2nd and 3rd mutagen war? Its safe to assume that starting an intergalactic war is not a slap-on-the-wrist offence so the majority of the Basalisk leaders and scientists would have been either killed or imprisoned by the end of each war. Not to mention that the standard treatment for a defeated nation includes demilitarization so any technology or supplies that could aid in the creation of mutagenetic soldiers would be closely monitored by Hub authorities. How did the Basalisk ever get the necessary supplies and manpower for a second and third war.
