Brian, you mentioned something about these little critters being used
to lay down things like wired reflexes.
Ever read Rifts? The Juicer OCC? They are drug crazed assassin/cyborgs.
An interesting thing that they have is a 'storage facility' that hold
these little buggers that help repair damages. Unfortunately there
is a limited supply. You run out, you get fixed the old fashion way.
Medics and Mechanics.
If you allocated space in the cyborg for such a 'storage facility' it
would work for a while. It need not take up much space. But there are
a limited number of times it can be used and how much damage to repair
. Even nastier would be that the 'borg doesn't know that his repairs
are limited. Could get nasty just when he needs it the most. Worse
yet, the time it takes to affect repairs. Something that size can't do
repairs all that fast. So it wouldn't be like the Universal Soldier movie
as Jean-Claude's wounds heal as he is in cold storage.
