A lesser racial trait, Bleeding Edge Technology increases the speed and limit of miniaturization at the expense of making new tech items (i.e. those for which you have exactly the required tech levels, but no higher) twice as expensive.

Some items require tech level 26 in one field. These are:

Because level 26 is the highest that can be researched, it is not possible to exceed the tech requirement and so a BET race will always pay double the standard cost for these items.
