Augments were created before humanity's development of [[warp drive]] and were notable for instigating the [[Eugenics Wars]] in an attempt to take over the world.  They were eventually defeated, but a handful escaped into space and became problems for [[Federation]] starships in later years. An attempt was made in the 22nd century by a renegade scientist to revive the Augments.

One of the lasting effects of the Augments was a widespread ban on extensive genetic engineering of sapient life by Terran nations afterwards and eventually the Federation.
