Had an idea for a PR but wanted some feedback, basically MDs and Roboticists would start with them. MDs and Roboticists would be unaffected since they have them already, but anyone wanting to job transfer into MD would need to get one.
Not having one would mean you fail surgery steps. I would toy around with the numbers, but basically this would stop chemists and psychologists or anyone else from being able to walk into medbay and print off tools and do surgery just as well. It would also mean sec officers can’t just do surgery themselves and would have to rely on medbay (cope) or their brig physician.
It never made sense to me that my character presumably went to medschool and learned all this stuff while anyone else that just grabs a hemostat, scalpel, and a bedsheet can magically do surgery just as good.
Is there anything I’m missing here or overlooking?
