I'm attempting to get a handle on canon's tech level. I'm pretty sure that genetic engineering/non-mechanical bio enhancement is taboo, but I don't remember any books or anything actually telling us outright about it. Maybe the Yuuzhan Vong stuff mentioned it? So, I'm curious as to whether anyone know the general opinion on biotech, and if its taboo, why it is taboo, and exactly how taboo is it? I hope that made some sense. I'm trying to put together a story that actually has a science fiction slant to it, and not just space opera. As an interesting side observation, it seems that there are no actual scientists in SW, just engineers.
