Daleks, the genetic abomination.
The Daleks have made use of and been victims of bioweapons several times during their history. One of the weaknesses of a cloned race is that something that affects one will affect all and there is no genetic diversity.
The Movellans (a race of robots) created a virus that turned the Daleks into soap suds. This was bad for the poor little octopus creatures.
In a case of life imitating art, NZ is back in level 4 lockdown after the Delta variant escaped into the community. At least its not zombie pox or xenomorph infestation.
In this third mission, the Daleks have tracked down a genetic anomality that is rumored to have psychic powers. The target is trying to find a ship to escape in. This anomaly might have some genetic variation that the Daleks can use to help develop a cure to the space plague.
