Dr. Asakura and Dr. D’Anclaude, take a parallel research field from Dr. Knute, and under shadows, creates the Third-types, who are all female cybernetic organisms not too different from humans in appearance. Due to tensions of any kind of cyborg-robotics use, most research is brought off-world to Mars. Although this classified data is known to certain departments and superiors, the public at-large and most political powers, are not aware or are in disbelief about the Third’s existence.
2045. The Second types that exist to help terraform and do dangerous tasks off-world, are branded as illegal on Earth. Labeled Replicants, these types are apprehended and hunted down by Blade Runners.
