I think this is a very bad idea, actually. They're about to reboot something they don't understand, which may well result in the package activating properly the way it didn't the first time.
I am going to unreservedly point and laugh at these chickenheads when it blows up in their face. I have called foul on this dodgy operation FROM THE VERY START, because I don't understand how their scientific curiosity seems to be clouding their common sense.
Oh look a shiny unidentified object floating through space, let's poke about in it! Oh but wait, before we do that, let's go right ahead and fiddle about in our genetics, see what turns up. What's the worst that could happen? It's not like the UNS could infiltrate us or anything, quit with the crazy talk already!
It's almost like the Toughs are the only ones remotely interested in getting paid and staying solvent. And not so much these days, at that. Come to think of it, when was the last time they got paid, or even worried about getting paid? I remember when Tagon used to hustle for every pay-cheque and actually bust out his happy dance. Now it's all doom and gloom and and someone dying every other week or someone needing to be rescued or something.
At least when the Gavs blow themselves up there'll be lots of pretty lights.
