Oh, so they didn’t go with a hive mind. Instead, there are some sort of messengers that transmit the information for the invaders. This brings up an interesting possibility of the ending where one of the invaders somehow survives the final battle and lies in wait to try and colonize again. Though, that may be less likely than the “let’s all be friends, aliens” ending and the “complete genocide” ending.
There sure are a lot of these E-Gene Holders roaming around. Is there going to be some sort of mini-genocide soon to make the final battle more difficult? I don’t see why they don’t just launch an offensive. Although, to be fair, it doesn’t look like there are too many combat types, so maybe that has something to do with it. Anyway, more missions next week.
