** Despite the ban, one ''The Next Generation'' episode had the Federation allow a research station to develop an "ideal" human species. With long lifespans, improved intelligence, youthful appearance, telepathy, and an advanced immune system, they were the scientist's every dream. Almost.
** On the other hand, The Dominion, Federation's EvilCounterpart, is a huge genetic engineering society. Jem'Hadar were created from nothing[[note]]Or, according to some fan theories, from modifying the Tosk (who have weaker versions of the special abilities demonstrated by the Jem'Hadar), themselves genetically engineered.[[/note]], Vorta bred from some other form; and it's stated that [[spoiler: The Founders were once humanoids but genetically engineered themselves into shape shifters. It is even supposed that their close-mindedness is the price they paid for their new body abilities.]]

* The novel ''Literature/BloodMusic'', winner of a HugoAward and a UsefulNotes/NebulaAward, is a GoneHorriblyWrong example: a scientist creates biological computers, each potentially as smart as a human from lymphocyte cells then injects them into himself. [[AIIsACrapshoot They attain self-awareness]]. Chaos ensues.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Comicbook/KryptonNoMore'', Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} tells Franchise/{{Superman}} they are not Kryptonians but mutant humans who got powers through being genetically modified. Subverted since [[spoiler:she lied because she was trying to prevent her cousin from having a break-down. Long story]].

** ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamIronBloodedOrphans'' has the Alaya-Vijnana system, a BrainMachineInterface implant that takes the form of protrusions from the spine called "whiskers." The surgical procedure is painful and dangerous, at least in the crude form used by ruthless mercenary groups on cast-off children. The prevailing "pure humanity" ideology of Earth opposes even basic prosthetics, so A-V users face significant prejudice.

* In Orson Scott Card's "[[Literature/EndersGame Shadow]]" series, a rogue scientist alters the DNA of 24 fertilized eggs to create superhumans, with a possible goal of replacing humanity. They're highly intelligent from an impossibly young age; the only downside is that they [[spoiler:grow so large their bodies can't take the stress and they die by the age of 20]]. The experiment's only survivor is [[spoiler:Bean]], and he does his best to keep his children from inheriting it.

to:

* In ''Literature/Babel17'', exotic, alien-looking "cosmetisurgery" is popular with spacecraft crews. Tails and feathers are common, but variety is the key, and some of the changes are quite disturbing. Those who aren't part of the Transport culture find it very distasteful.

Added DiffLines:

** The Universal Century has Cyber-Newtypes from ''Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam'' on. Using a combination of surgery, drugs, and mental conditioning, ordinary humans can be given the reaction times and psychic abilities of newtypes. The downside is sharp drop in mental stability, especially in the earlier examples.

Added DiffLines:

* The Abh of ''LightNovel/CrestOfTheStars'' were genetically engineered to be humans suited for life in deep space and marked with blue hair. Landers (normal humans) who become Abh (typically through military service or acquiring a noble rank) have their offspring engineered to share these traits. One world experimented with genetic modifications for longevity, but later joined a star nation that severely disapproves of any human modification.
