Rather than make a new topic for every such idea, maybe just one ongoing thread. I’ll update it often enough, promise.
Before I asked “since the egg cannon is seen leaving with the mother hen ship coming out of it, did it spawn it? The egg cannon is seen spawning eggshells with plasma, and the mother hen ship is this but with wiring and a yolk like the yolk star. Can the egg cannon spawn frankensteins of other final bosses?”
Your thoughts on that
Other idea: A lot of people must think the Mysterious Egg is a disguised Mother Hen Ship, right? Same size, similar attacks. But I roll you this: it’s an auto pilot test ship designed to see if upgrading the MHS is possible, perhaps via the Egg Cannon.
In CI2 and CI3, MHS doesn’t spin. In CI4, MHS spins controlledly like piloting a regular ship.
But the Mysterious Egg wobbles around inanely to the point it would dizzy or hit everyone inside (forces in space aside).
So I don’t think it’s controlled by the same force necessarily, unless the MHS is a robot to begin with until CI4’s “clone version”. I think it’s safer to say that the ME is testing how rotation works including to its limits, to allow the MHS to be upgraded to allow rotating in its movements and thus move faster.
This would also explain why it’s found in comet areas; it’s using them as target practice to dodge around and is a hidden, inaccessible region good for secret tests.
