Re: A Concept for the Virus + Animal Faction Expansion (Update)

@Ygds Yea, it's Davros from Doctor Who, creator of the Daleks. In case you don't know they are boneless green blobs inside of metal caskets, who like to scream "Exterminate!" They were made of a human-in-all-but-name race of Kaleds (at least according to the story "Genesis of the Daleks"), in a way ...

Re: A Concept for the Virus + Animal Faction Expansion (Update)

@Ygds Glad to see you again, you come up with some interesting details at the point where I give up query and refrain to mythology. I think I know, who gave you the idea you're talking about: http://moblog.net/media/t/w/i/twiglet/davros.jpg That's basically what this guy did. Slightly similar princi...

Re: A Concept for the Virus + Animal Faction Expansion (Update)

Your image-browsing-fu never fails to amaze me. But what I was thinking about was not merely naming conventions; I meant the themes, the sources of inspiration. Something along those lines: 1. Searching up the creatures/deities in the three sources: mythology indigenous to specific area (which will ...

Re: A Concept for the Virus + Animal Faction Expansion (Update)

@trooogdooor I do recognize the elegance of your solution; nevertheless it was your solution, not mine. This would only change the nature of the "Amphitryte" stage, which would no longer involve two cells, but an animal cell and a couple of artifacts (as the "compacted nucleus" wouldn't suffice; som...

Re: A Concept for the Virus + Animal Faction Expansion (Update)

Sorry to say, but I wasn't that elegant at all. I meant complete two sets of organelle, including two nuclei, one of them undergoing meiosis and the other undergoing mitosis in the process of gametogenesis. The other nucleus would be only passed to the offspring the way mitochondria are - the sperm'...

Re: A Concept for the Virus + Animal Faction Expansion (Update)

I think I've left it only implied, but the second nucleus - the one coming from the species not responsible for the reproduction - wouldn't be involved in sexual reproduction; it would be transmitted to an egg, much like mitochondrion, and absent in the sperm. Also the supervised creation would only...

Re: A Concept for the Virus + Animal Faction Expansion (Update)

The question is "Why the bioformer should have to change the gametes at all?"! The chimeras could be composite organisms, which require all the components to be in place to take their final shapes, but they would be able to develop in absence of any of the components - which once were self sufficien...

Re: A Concept for the Virus + Animal Faction Expansion (Update)

@trooogdooor Totally agree; separating the two factors and the "active engineering" thing invalidates most of the problems. Two side notes: 1st: the "fancy" biospheres aren't hermetically separated from external environment. The bioformer's grasp and attention would have to have their limits. What w...

Re: A Concept for the Virus + Animal Faction Expansion (Update)

I like Trooogdooor's idea and I was referring to it in another thread. First thing I did before posting here was to read that thread. If I didn't address certain ideas it wasn't because I ignored them, but because I couldn't find a foothold to do so. What I proposed was chimerism on an organ level, ...

Re: A Concept for the Virus + Animal Faction Expansion (Update)

Is it supposed to be a virus or a „virus”, which could be any form of invasive organic matter? If you are looking for means by which the cellular bonds could be destroyed, the most obvious choice is sodium ions. But neither this nor any mechanism I can imagine is able to both destroy cellular bonds ...

Re: 2050-2075: Healthcare

You can just ignore me on the subject of nanites; it's merely nerd rage on my part. But to the point: is this interesting for a backstory of a wargame? It depends. As a stand-alone story probably not, as it has "no pictures or conversations in it". But in a game, for which it provides a backstory, i...

Re: 2050-2075: Healthcare

I like this kind of speculative fiction. The pieces about the development of medical nano-technology are the good reads. The beginning paragraphs less so, as they're lacking some details, without which they seem like speculation rather than history. Ex. "airborne viral outbreaks... the last one in 2...
