For the first time in a while, some New Skaro work. With an outline of one of the bird-like beasts that live in the swamp, notorious for killing Daleks in the swamp and being an overall nuisance and menace.
Based on the most recent redesign based on Tardigrades. Well, an attempt at it.
The casings are closer to what I intend, but it still needs work. They're built soeley for transport across long distances, and the Daleks are perfectly capable of surviving outside of them. The New Skaro Daleks expect casings to be obsolete within ten generations.
Gestation sacks are similar to molted Tardigrade skin. A Dalek looking to breed would wrap up old skin and deposit its gametes in it, then pass it off to someone else to put theirs in it. Either one of them will keep the sack, or agree to leave it to the care of those who work in the nursery.
I've also rewritten the origin of the New Skaro Daleks. There were thousands of scientists affiliated with the Cult of Skaro, and when the Time War emerged, they were ordered to flee as far as they could to preserve themselves. Sec, Caan, Thay, and Jast remained behind and sealed themselves in the Void Ship, but left dormant copies of themselves with their scientists before they were sent away. Upon the death of the original, the copy would activate with all of its memories. However, the Cult of Skaro lost contact with their scientists, and were quite certain that they and the copies had perished. In actuality, they went into space far beyond reach of the Daleks, making it impossible for communication to occur. From there, they started work to rebuild the Daleks into near-Kaleds.
After several hundred years, the copies activated. Thay and Jast were barricaded from attempting to destroy the new Daleks, and Sec isolated himself from them, working closely with New Skaro's geneticists. He took the aspiring and assertive Miar under his tutelage, who would soon become enamored with him. Sec is aware, and isn't sure if he can reciprocate, believing he lost his connection to a human mind; if he did, he wouldn't be feeling anything for anyone, let alone Miar.
