Anyway, with the basics of the premise out there, and so far no major objections, I will get into the nuts and bolts of this idea...
The best place to start is the beginning.
One of the proposed ways of getting around interstellar travel and colonisation is to do what is called embryo colonisation.
This entails sending frozen embryos on the trip with the intent of raising them to adulthood on the ship when it gets close enough, and then to
colonise the target planet when it arrives.
Problems arise of course when the question of who raises said children.
The idea of having robots directed by an a.i. to perform those duties would solve that.
Of course, being sci-fi minded, after reading an article in this, it occurred to me that an a.i. system, left to its own devices for maybe millenia,
might go a little HAL...
But I digress.
So a civilisation decides to do this great adventure, for whatever reason, be it necessity or just because they can.
A sufficiently advanced civ would likely have technology that would allow for the type of genetic tech I'm talking about.
Why have nuts, bolts, wires, etc., when you can have non invasive biological based implants that are genetic in nature?
It might explain some of our so called junk dna...latent tech that isn't left over, but just has not been activated yet, or even has been but we don't
With such a system.you could implant instructions before birth without the use of verbal communication.
To be cont.
