    Maybe it's a love of scifi, elder race mysteries, and biotechnology, but I really loved this! Really cool concept and great use of in media res. There was a reference in the Spinner room to "two other things" that I had a little trouble parsing. But I'd definitely be interested in seeing more of these characters! The Professor especially was really well characterized and even in a short form story I was totally invested in it surviving.
