So do you use the mad scientist gambit in scenarios often?
Or perhaps a rogue geneticist with crazy ideas and no inhibitions.

Space monsters, cave monsters, alien monsters, giant monsters, man made monsters; all of the above.

Not quite "gone wrong".
But when I was designing my GASLIGHT armies, I ignored anything that Science "discovered" post 1885.
The all important Second Law of Thermodynamics was … not quite finalized.
Basically I wanted to do weird stuff that a fanatical devotion to scientific truth might frown upon.
For example, guys pedaling had an efficiency far greater than 1.0 and that allowed fantastic models.

And sometimes not by deliberate intent . . . In Dystopian Wars, there's an ability called "Inventive Scientists" which allows a re-roll on a failed test for such things as putting out fires or a repair. On a roll of 1, the action not only fails, something catches fire.

Pretty much the question answered there :D
