Re: The Genesis planet...

...It shows a planet of fixed size already being complete, just with some swirling clouds around it. "Pulling together to create a planet" is overstating the case by a wide margin.

Really, the simulation we saw already featured something very similar: a grey, dead moon or planetoid briefly glows orange as the Genesis wave races along its surface, and then coalesces into lakes, forests and whatnot. So for all we know, Genesis did almost exactly what the Marcuses wanted it to do, with the modification that the wave was initiated at a distance rather than at the surface of the target world.
