Erinys wrote:They are not a "Hive Mind", but rather an endlessly repeating city of trans-carbon entities. One can imagine them as a collective or commune, but they do not surrender their individuality to the whole in any way; that would smack of humility. The City Core is the residence of all the minds grown too abstract to be self–motivated personalities.

In game they currently avoid going to a system where another Sphere is going, so I was wondering if this was from some form of communication or just them detecting and avoiding each other.

Does it feel that it is part of a collection of perfection, or does it think that it and it alone is the pinnacle of being and that the rest of it's trans-carbon brethren are just along for the ride? If an individual locust is destroyed (say because of combat or a cosmic mishap), is it recreated and if so, is that process automated or initiated by other locusts?
How is it then that some of the minds have grown too abstract to be self-motivated?
Erinys wrote:The Locusts feel entitled to take anything and everything they need from a system. The members of their own race who decided not to join them and transcend a carbon lifestyle were treated in a predictable fashion. If the remainder of the parent species is ever found, it is likely that they will be living on a stripped world, trapped in a Stone Age from which they can never escape.

I wondered about that - but if so why don't the Morrigi unlock them automatically like they do colony and asteroid traps and wreckage? I suppose Morrigi get a bonus to research unlocking them (relative to other (non-Zuul?) races). Also, a bit odd how AMs have such an emphasis on ballistics (and missiles) - hardly strengths of the Morrigi - though maybe the preference for energy weapons is new in recent millennia.
