Sorta. Sence traveling a VIHRUS along a LAZAHR BEAHM would INCINAHRAHTE the VIHRUS, that's completely out. My twist is that, rather than make the crew into biocircitry, this thing can control creatures, kinda like zombies.

Do they run or walk? And can they use objects like weapons and control consoles?
In space, no one can hear you scream unless your transmitting it on the right radio frequency.

How do I put it... Well, I'll just explain out how "the Infection" works, in those terms.
The Infection is like a hive mind. The more intelligence it consumes (say, it infects a ship full of Photos, it would gain a fraction of the knowledge from all of the creatures), the more intelligent it would get. So at first, no they won't be able to use weapons or interface with items. But as more and more organisms fall to it, it would become able to manipulate creatures under it's control with greater extents of intellgence.

So basically, more like the Flood from Halo. Only it takes more time and bodies for it to use objects. Which makes me think... Y'know, Grox, how about you make a list on what the nanobot/virus can and cannot do.

Actually, in all thought, it can do pretty much anything a normal creature can, given enough intelligence. But, what I would like to clairify, is that it's a double-edged sword: Getting more life-forms increases overall intelligence, but lowers the intelligence distributed to each controled creature, so dumb creatures would be of little value. Creatures with a high standard intelligence would be prime targets.

Let's hurl all of our captive low-class pirates and terrorists straight at the virus! ;D Their hotbloodedness should be enough to dumb down the entire network! :D


Humor aside, this is gonna be awesome. :)

Alright, so they are a virus that when it starts infecting a colony population or a ship crew, it starts with zombies and with the more infected, they grow a hive mind that contains every memory every infected had, but the more bodies it has, the less intelligent the "drones" are. So I'm going to assume there are intelligent infected guiding the "drones".

But I want to know one last thing, how are they part nanobot? Is the virus artificial?

Of course, that's standard with zombies!

Oh, and this:

That's what you get when you mix;
This arc, MS Paint, and inspiration.
[obvious]Kudos to whoever can guess what it is.  ::)[/obvious]
Note: I went skimpy on the fingers, I can't do them in MS Paint.

Is that a good thing or a bad thing?

Wait, you mean you're having second thoughts whether an entire civilization getting assimilated by zombie-viruses is a bad thing?  ???


EDIT:

On a related note: Can said zombie-viruses also infect bio-mechanicals like Orealyianis and Wexxians?

Oh, that?

I think it's fine.

Though, I am getting kinda curious as to what that tentacle thingy actually is.
