After looking back through the archives a fabber, as the term has been used throughout the comic, refers to a military grade fabrication system. That implies that there are also civilian grade fabrication systems. Whether a civilian system can make a blood nannies is open to debate, but it's probably more of a software lock than hardware. Since after all they did it on Haven Hive. Of course that begs the question of whether you would be willing to trust your brain backups to bootleg blood nanobots. Although that same strip about watermelons mentions standard hot tanks. So medical grade equipment to do it is probably available. Which isn't quite the same as something you could download off the hypernet and make yourself, but it's better than nothing.

Also while I was browsing I noticed that Tagon expressed real regret learning that Athena had died. Given the whole AI vs. biological consciousness thing that's going on it's interesting to realize that he basically thought of them as actual people all the way back then.

Even if he has downgraded some of them to people he doesn't trust it's always based on their actual actions rather than because they're AIs.

Also those old strips look more colorful. Have they always been like that or did some higher resolution ones get uploaded at some point.

Though that does bring up the question of just how many people the Oafan can treat at once. In a galaxy of trillions there will obviously be a waiting list.
