The latest Project Blackstone communication via Twitter explores a bit of an enigma concerning zerg Overlords.

07-overlord

This conversation is composed of Xenobiologist Dr. Talise Cogan and Xenobiologist Dr. Leah A. Martine.

As discovered a few days ago, Leah is actually Winlaleah Martine — former Ghost Academy trainee (Tokyopop manga — StarCraft: Ghost Academy by Keith R.A. DeCandido).

Dr. Talise Cogan: Do you mind if I pick your brain, Dr.? I understand you’re an expert in psionic neurology.

Dr. Talise Cogan: I’m going over my notes from a few weeks ago, and I’m struggling with a question.

Dr. Leah A. Martine: Of course.

Dr. Talise Cogan: Specifically, I want to talk to you about the zerg overlord.

Dr. Talise Cogan: For lack of a better word, is it possible for psionic neurons to emit an “echo” after brain death?

Dr. Leah A. Martine: Do you mean neurons salvaged from the overlord’s brain at the moment of its death? A cultured neuronal network with an MEA?

Dr. Leah A. Martine: That seems like a rather old-fashioned approach, so I’m thinking you must have something else in mind.

Dr. Talise Cogan: We estimate that this overlord has been dead for quite a while. My investigation in this area is purely incidental.

Dr. Talise Cogan: But I found that I was bombarded with despair whenever I dissected the specimen.

Dr. Talise Cogan: My previous procedures with other zerg species were unremarkable in this respect.

Dr. Talise Cogan: It is a phenomenon I have only experienced with the overlord.

Dr. Talise Cogan: That’s why I’m bringing this to you. I suspect that the emotion originated from the overlord. Is that possible?

Dr. Leah A. Martine: In that case, no. It was well into a state of decay, incapable of generating the impulses required for psionic communication.

Dr. Talise Cogan: But the zerg habitus is so adaptable. Our science has a poor record of charting its course.

Dr. Talise Cogan: Perhaps a new mutation has allowed the overlord to give off post-mortem psionic emanations of grief?

Dr. Leah A. Martine: Sometimes there’s room for doubt and speculation, but not here. The zerg aren’t magic; dead still means dead.

Dr. Leah A. Martine: I suspect that this was a product of your imagination. If you don’t mind my saying so.

Dr. Talise Cogan: Not at all. Thank you, Dr.
