So where did the embryos come from?
I don't know, I'm just saying that if that explanation was given, it was by someone other than me.

Also, regarding the 30 million + death toll, I think a possible option is to consider that it may not refer to deaths in the timeframe of the books, but to deaths in a separate event much later that occurred due to the Eugenics Wars in some way. A revenge attack, or an attempt to pick up where Khan and the other Augments left off, maybe?
Well, they are called the Wars, plural. Try not to speculate too much, though, or it might cross into story-idea territory.
