LifeNeeds Corporation’s Board of Directors are looking for the next big thing to meet the demands of an ever-changing market and fill their pockets. While the heads of LifeNeeds Research and Development departments scramble to survive in their cutthroat business, C’Bre Rah designs a marketing plan to die for. Will he save his project from budget cuts and make humanity the latest commodity hawked on the universal market?

If any R&D department head kiped his ideas… C’Bre controlled his rampaging heartbeats. LifeNeeds Corporation patents were available to all. Furthermore, he’d taken the precaution of storing information about the special modifications in the safest place aboard the Starcruiser: his brain.
Only the board’s shortsightedness and their greed threatened his product.
