This settlement is the center of Somatek’s efforts at animal uplifts. In addition, it is where a majority of the genetically-engineered animals that live in the various Lunar settlements are designed and grown. Today, Clever Hands concentrates most of its efforts in producing new and exotic species of pets and genetically tame and hygienic animals. Their most recent popular success has been five species of lemurs that are all as intelligent as chimpanzees as well as being both tame and clean. However, researchers at Clever Hands are also working on reptilian and avian uplifts. More than a third of the 60,000 personnel living and working here are uplifts. There are also persistent rumors of Somatek working on cutting-edge animal pod morphs and uplifted animal intelligences that are designed for military use. Firewall has obtained a report indicating that in at least one incident these creatures have escaped.
