Um.... mix up? How about genetic engineering?

Being a slave to canon shows both.

See that? A new and interesting idea... Genetically modified blood-suckers. Boldly going forward rather than quoting canon and scripture. ALSO, unless there is a mistake in-game somewhere... The DEV BLOG episode clearly states COPPER.

Ayup. Reading is fundamental. COPPER. not sulfur.

If you want a small universe that references itself every chance it gets pick up a ST novel. Don't sit here and discourage the devs when they try to expand the game.
