They were referred to as human-form replicators.
You know what doesn't make sense to me is this. The drones are out to destroy all technology so whoever invented them has a thing against any civilization with technology. Yet the drones themselves are also technology. Why don't they destroy themselves?
Destiny is not a military ship, it's an old rusty science ship made by a pacifist civilization. It's not surprising that drones are dangerous to Destiny.
True dat.. Heck it seems that until the Ancients encountered the wraith, they were VERY pacifistic in their ways.
Attack a planetary fortress with 200 lings. A good 150 of them will die a horrible death. However even with their small 4 dmg per attack they WILL kill it if you attack it with enough zergligns pretty fast too.
*Drones vs Destiny
Fly in 3 Brood Lords, they will sit and shoot at the PF for much longer then the 200 zerglings would have.
They will leave alive once the PF is dead tho.
*Blue MS vs Destiny.
Sorry I just hadda draw out 'zerg rush;
Depends on why they had the drones in the first place.. And i doubt they were in more than 1 galaxy.
