Alpha Centauri Wiki

The Academician's private residences shall remain off-limits to the Genetic Inspectors. We possess no retroviral capability, we are not researching retroviral engineering, and we shall not allow this Council to violate faction privileges in the name of this ridiculous witch hunt!

Vice Provost for University Affairs

Retroviral Engineering is a Conquer technology in Alpha Centauri.

Background[ | ]

Retroviral Engineering, a specialized branch of Bio-engineering (B4), uses engineered viruses to deliver genetic alterations. This application can be used for peaceful, healing purposes, but can also be twisted by the same militant researchers behind Advanced Military Algorithms (E3) into a weapon of terrible destruction.
