Darkevilme, I take it that the reported dollar figures are totals
for all ships of that class under construction? As in, you are constructing eight Predator
class vessels, each of which costs 80$?

They're human-based cat people bred for some strange purpose by an outside force.
They make us curious.
But the Diaspora remains the core of our research.
So, curiosity killed the... OW!

Of course not, they're the single most efficient way to deliver witty puns and make people laugh before you do horrible things to them.
Or, for that matter, make people laugh after you do horrible things to someone else, whether you're going to do anything horrible to them or not.
Unit 7 no doubt has fond memories of getting away with killing dozens of people in brutal fashions and getting away with it by the appropriate use of one-liners...
Oh, no, the robots have probably observed that things like teeth and glowy eyes have an unnerving effect on biologicals and thus serve an important psychological warfare purpose.
(Actually, they may purposefully design some units to maximize the 'uncanny valley' effect for different reasons-- to put someone off their game during negotiations, or to freak out adversaries in combat).
Wouldn't be surprised. That may explain why the robot the Pendletonian spoke to was built to look
like a rather attractive woman... but spoke in a man's voice.
