Your Lab

Safely away from the general station population, the Xenobiology lab is at the cutting edge of cutting up definitely not helpless slimes. The primary purpose of this lab is research on the breeding of slimes, the extracts of which have a variety of fun effects, by feeding them large numbers of monkeys until they are large enough to "breed" or be cut up.

It also contains pens capable of safely housing strange and dangerous aliens which might find themselves aboard the station.

See Guide to Xenobiology for more information.

Weird Science


  • Slime cores offer you a wide variety of effects.
  • Releasing the slimes is one of the most dangerous things you can do short of releasing the Singularity, especially if you carefully breed and augment your specimens instead of just releasing a gray (slime) tide.

Gimmicks: You have one of the most fun and most mechanically diverse jobs on the station. In addition to the pedestrian slime-mobbing, you can manufacture an army of Prometheans using sapphire slime cores. Unlike the Xenobotanist's Dionaea, your Prometheans are more than capable of any number of violent acts-- ahelp asking for antag status for them and enjoy your army of self-regenerating commandos! A skilled Xenobiologist has the station in the palm of their hands, and can well pull off any gimmick they'd like-- mad scientist, political radical, or even rude prankster.
