It was then that Rena went from her usual ‘You people are idiots’ look, to her slightly less common ‘oh crap, what have I done?’ look. She then reported that, just before the Tongu slavers fired their stink ray at us several weeks ago, she had been working on an experiment in the ship’s biomolecular genetics lab, where she had cloned some baby velociraptors, and implanted them with human-level intelligence.
I loudly asked the Doctor to confirm that she had created a race of sentient velociraptors who were now running amok on my ship, when the newly-puritanical INFO interrupted our discussion to reprimand me for some perfectly reasonable words in which I had couched my query to the good doctor. Rena tried to explain that she had given the pair of formerly-extinct predators human intelligence ‘so that they could be reasoned with’ or some malarkey. Great, that's all we need, more things we have to "reason" with.
