THE ZETATECH CAMPAIGN TIMELINE
The Biodynamics corporation:
Biotechnica decides to build
up a new sister-corporation, concentrating to a new form of human augmentation:
Cyber evolutions. One of Biotechnicas leading scientists, Dr. Enrico Alonso
has deciphered some of the human genetic code, or DNA and is certain he is
on the verge of unlocking the entire sequence. That would enable him to make
changes at the most basic levels of the human physique.
The new augmentations wouldn`t be "mere add-ons" to the human body. Rather they would be new evolutionary developments of the human body itself, the next step in human evolution! Alonso has convinced the bigshot suits at Biotechnica that he can pull it off, and so he is made the head of research at the Biodynamics corp. After all, if the project fails, they can bury the new corp as a "bad move" ( along with Alonso ) with minimal PR and financial losses.

17. 8. 2023 - The gloves are off, Zetatech has had enough of Biotechnica and initiates full-scale war against it. The government gives Zetatech a warning, but is rather powerless since most of the congress is behing Zetatech and Zetatech always strikes with surgical precision, almost never harming bystanders. (Accidents happen but they are quickly covered up) Not to mention the substantial tax revenue Zetatech generates...
17. 8. 2023 - ( Got Firestorm Stormfront & Shockwave? I also used these books as Arasaka and Militech fought their wars at the same time, adding to the havoc! I highly recommend buying the books, they`re full of wonderful adventure ideas not to mention new kickass hard-, soft-, and cyberware!!! )
