[[Image:Programming Genesis.jpg|thumb|right|Carol and David programming the device.]]The '''Genesis device''' was a device intended for terraforming entire planets.  The device was developed by Drs. [[Carol Marcus|Carol]] and [[David Marcus]] on board the [[Federation]] [[spacestation]] [[Regula 1]].  They sent a detailed proposal of their intended research project to the Federation to receive the resources they would need for their research, which included the [[starship]] [[USS Reliant]].  The video proposal outlined the benefits to the Federation which included new planets for colonies and agriculture to alleviate the problems of overcrowding and food supply.

[[Image:Genesis effect simulation.jpg|thumb|right|Computer simulation of the Genesis effect]]The project was to proceed in three stages.  Stage one was conducted in a lab.  Stage two was conducted in a lifeless underground cavern.  Reliant was to search for a lifeless planet for stage three while the scientists put the finishing touches on their research and development.  Unfortunately, Reliant got its planets mixed up and was hijacked by [[Khan Noonien Singh|Khan]].

As with most pieces of miracle technology in fiction, it has a horrible downside.  [[Spock]] speculates that it would destroy any life in the area of its effect.  David confirms that it could be perverted into a terrible weapon.  Khan learned of the project from a mind-controlled [[Pavel Checkov]] and added stealing the device to his objectives in addition to seeking revenge on Admiral [[James T. Kirk|Kirk]].  The devastating potential become a subject of great controversy in the quadrant, with the [[Klingon]]s doing everything from launching protests against the project to trying to steal it for themselves in ''[[Star Trek III: The Search For Spock]]''.
