The Bio-replicator pod is a remarkable device that was introduced in 2058 by the Weyland Corporation for use by planetary engineers. Later advancements made bio-replicator pods available to off-world civilians for home use. Each pod has a database of over 40 million seed varieties and plant DNA. With the push of a button, it can replicate the requested sample. Growth rates were achieved of about 55%, not factoring unsuitable planetary conditions for a given species. At 1 cubic foot in size, an array of thousands of bio-replicator pods can be outfitted to any seeder for industrial use. For household use, it is recommended that bio-replicator pods be stored outside the home.
