Could you use prosthetics to increase already normal-for-your-species abilities?
You mean like taping a magnifying glass to your hand? Or wearing steel-capped shoes?
Lol! Haha, no, I was thinking more like very small hearing aids, or vision improving contact lenses.
In hindsight, "prosthetics" is not really the best term. And there aren't really that many "improvements" that you could make without it being really blatant. Anyway.
Have we really seen that many species in TrekLit who substantially lack some human ability? (Aside from the Efrosians possibly being blind. Well, I guess there's also the Aenar...)
