    The concept has been dealt with before by sci-fi authors with the uterine replicators of the Vorkosigan Saga. Which, I am just plugging...

    Well those were clearly alien beluga whales because they sounded like dolphins and their eyes are in a different place. :)

  13. Charles Phipps liked Llywela's post in the thread Plots you'd like them to follow up on from Season 1.
