I just had a thought. Was Tinman in TNG an Undine vessel? Could STO use this?

I see bioships as being an inevitable stage in a species technological progression. Once a race masters nanotechnology and the biological sciences to the point where they can create New Life at will is is a small step to using biological components in technological applications.
The Federation with it's fear of genetic manipulation will not enter it's biological-ship phase for a long time to come. Once that taboo is discarded living ships will become possible for them.
