Come on, it's cool but it'll lead to zombies and terminators - I know it, you know it! ;)

I think the ultimate premise of the franchise, by now, is that everything leads to terminators ;) - overall, the emergence of something not-quite-biological which will (out)compete / good old evolution...

(a bit harder with zombies; but, weren't they a metaphor - originally at least, and still with clear echoes in later production - for blind consumptionism, anyway? Plenty of that around)
