Icheb?Edit

Wasn't Icheb and Augment? -7th Tactical

How do you figure? I mean... really. How do you figure? -- Sulfur 19:48, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
The only modifications I can think of were either Borg implants, which don't make him an augment, and the pathogen put in him by his people. Was that pathogen said to be genetic, or just some virus or something? --OuroborosCobra talk 19:50, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
From the episode: "He was genetically engineered to produce the pathogen, from birth.". --Jörg 19:54, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
Well then, depending on how wide a definition we want to use, he is an augment. --OuroborosCobra talk 19:56, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
The category should make it clear as to what's going on. The Icheb article has been amended to add the word Augment to his species -- Sulfur 20:02, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
No it hasn't. Whatever are you talking about? :P --OuroborosCobra talk 20:06, 29 April 2007 (UTC)

Augment quotesEdit

From "Borderland":

ARCHER (referring to Soong's augments and Khan's supermen): They were augments. Their genetically-enhanced DNA matched embryos stolen from a medical facility over twenty years ago. Stolen by you.
TUCKER (referring to Khan's supermen): So there could be a bunch of augments from the Eugenics Wars running around loose.
ARCHER (referring to Soong's augments): The Klingons have threatened to retaliate with everything they've got. We're the fastest ship and the most experienced crew. We have to find the augments and bring them back. It's the only way to avert a war. We launch in six hours.
SOONG (referring to his augments): If I could examine the DNA samples the Klingons recovered, I could tell you something about the current state of the augments.
TUCKER (referring to Khan's supermen): Well, if I remember my history, these augments you love so much had plenty of slaves.
ARCHER (referring to Soong's augments): Then tell me how to find the augments. You know where they're going.
SOONG (referring to his augments): He didn't need to suffer. Genetic engineering could've cured him. Those who want to suppress my augments are the same ones who condemned your father to death. Turn the ship around, Captain. Go home. Leave them alone.

From "Cold Station 12":

SOONG (referring to Khan's supermen): Some claim humanity rose up against the augments. Others say the augments began fighting among themselves. Whoever started it, the war devastated Earth. Millions perished. And when it was over people like you were feared. Humans will always fear you. They fear your power, your intellect. They fear you because you're everything they want to be, but can't be. Which is why I brought you here, where it's safe. I've raised you like my own. You call me father. But I'm only watching over you. You belong to the future, and someday you will fulfill humanity's promise.
ARCHER (referring to Soong's augments): Captain's starlog, supplemental. Doctor Soong and his augments have escaped on a Klingon bird-of-prey. Without any other leads, we've proceeded to the coordinates Soong gave us when we began this mission.
ARCHER (referring to Soong's augments): For an augment, he didn't put up much of a fight.
PHLOX (referring to Soong's augments): He isn't an Augment. He's an anomaly. His DNA is similar to the others, but not identical. He was born with none of their enhanced abilities.
MALIK (referring to Soong's augments): Why shouldn't I lead? Augments should be led by augments.
UDAR (referring to Soong's augments): I'm an augment.
PHLOX (referring to Soong's augments): Even an augment needs oxygen.
TUCKER (referring to Soong's augments): Augments and one Human.

From "The Augments":

In the title (referring to Soong's augments)
SOONG (referring to Khan's supermen): You did the right thing. If he deploys that weapon, he'll be confirming everything they've said about augments for the last hundred and fifty years. They'll destroy all of you. You have to help me stop him. We can sabotage the engines or the torpedo launchers.
SOONG (referring to his augments): My children. The augments are planning to attack a Klingon colony.
ARCHER (referring to Soong's augments): Your story doesn't sound very plausible. I think we were getting close to finding your augments. You may have put yourself into that escape pod to throw us off.
ARCHER (referring to Khan's supermen): None of that would have mattered in the end. It's in their nature. They were engineered to be this way. Superior ability breeds superior ambition. One of their creators wrote that. He was murdered by an augment.

From "Affliction":

PHLOX (referring to Soong's augments or Khan's supermen): I have seen these sequences before. Six months ago, to be precise. This is augment DNA. How did modified human genes find their way into this virus?
K'VAGH (referring to Soong's augments): Is that really such a surprise, Doctor? It took only two human augments to commandeer a Bird of Prey and murder its entire crew. The Empire could not allow an inferior species to gain an advantage on us. Imagine, every Starfleet vessel manned with genetically engineered humans.
PHLOX (referring to Soong's augments): Earth banned genetic engineering decades ago. The augments who attacked you were relics of another era.
PHLOX (referring to K'Vagh's prisoners): You were trying to create Klingon augments. But Soong's experiments were all killed. Where did you get the genetic material?
PHLOX (referring to Soong's augments): Their cranial ridges started to dissolve. Augment DNA was more aggressive than you realised.
ANTAAK (referring to K'Vagh's prisoners): For a time it appeared we were quite successful. Our augments might have looked Human, but they were Klingon. Stronger, more intelligent. Then, their neural pathways started to degrade. They died in agony. One of the test subjects was suffering from the Levodian flu. The augment genes modified the virus.
ANTAAK (referring to K'Vagh's prisoners): They wouldn't destroy us if they knew we had created Klingon augments.
ANTAAK (referring to K'Vagh's prisoners): It succeeded for a brief period. If Phlox and I can find a way to stabilise the human DNA prior to the onset of stage three, our augments would survive. If we're successful, you could use them as leverage, force the High Council to give us more time to find a cure.
PHLOX (referring to K'Vagh's prisoners): You don't seriously expect me to help you create Klingon augments?

From "Divergence":

PHLOX (referring to K'Vagh's prisoners): You want me to create Klingon augments. Living weapons. I won't do it.
PHLOX (referring to K'Vagh's prisoners): Yes. Yes. That would stop the genetic effects of the virus in stage one. There'd be changes of appearance, some minor neural reordering, but no development of stage two characteristics. No enhanced strength or speed or endurance. But then General K'Vagh would not get his augments. He would never allow it.
K'VAGH (referring to his prisoners): The Denobulan is close to perfecting the augment's genome.
K'VAGH (referring to his prisoners): Command chose his unit for the augment experiment when we had exhausted our supply of prisoners. My son was a warrior. He asked for no special treatment, and I gave him none.
PHLOX (referring to K'Vagh's prisoners): Why did you think you'd succeed in perfecting augments when Doctor Soong failed?
PHLOX (referring to Khan's supermen): Augments don't. Their increased aggression is matched by their decreased inhibitions. You'd lose control of them, just as Humans did.
K'VAGH (referring to his prisoners): Cure? You were supposed to perfect the augment genome!
HARRIS (referring to K'Vagh's prisoners): I called to thank you. Everything went according to our projections. The Empire's been stabilized. I doubt very much they'll be experimenting with augments anytime soon.

There, according to these quotes, all of the supermen that Soong hung around with were augments (except for Udar), as were all the Supermen in the Eugenics Wars. Only the Klingons who died in Antaak's experiments were "Klingon augments," as the point of Section 31's involvement was that Klingons wouldn't want to try to make any augments again.

Augments are referred to as "supermen" 4 times in "Space Seed" and genetically engineered people are referred to as "mutants" (by themselves, likely derogatorily) in "Statistical Probabilities" and "Chrysalis".--Tim Thomason 20:53, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
