|Available only with the Humanoids DLC enabled.|
Empires with the Clone Army origin that finished excavating the Homeworld Excavation archaeological site will be given a unique event chain. Finishing the event chain will replace the Clone Soldier trait with a more powerful one.
The two final special projects are mutually exclusive and finishing one will abort the other. Both special projects will also be aborted if the primary species becomes Mechanical via the Synthetic tradition tree. AI empires will always choose the Clone Fertility special project at the conclusion of the event chain.
News of the excavation findings, proving that our species was once a primitive people on [homeworld name], is beginning to spread.
It is difficult to deny the obvious conclusion: genetically modifying a primitive species such as our forebears - a species already suited to wage war - serves a specific purpose. Our Creators remade us to die for their cause. They uplifted us to fulfill their needs, never to prosper on our own terms.
Is this really the history we want for our people?
There is ample opportunity to rewrite our past.
||Mean time to happen:
Yes, we were made in the image of the Creators.
No, we shall face reality.
Years back, excavations were made to find the purpose of our creation. The learnings were hard: we were made to serve, to die in the name of our Creators. We chose to guard our people from that truth by giving them a better one.
A number of high-ranking officers have taken it upon themselves to publicly acknowledge their approval of our leadership ethics.
A carefully constructed video message has been sent out, explaining the reasons behind the manufactured story. The broadcast explains that it was meant as a kindness, emphasizing that there is no shame in our true past and that we must look to the future. Mention is also given to the significant advances we have made since propagating such false beliefs.
It is thought that we were once capable of independent reproduction.
Interfacing with the Ancient Clone Vats
By the tenacity of our scientists, the cipher found within the Ancient Clone Vats has been decoded. Protocol notwithstanding, the overly eager lead science officer has activated the key it contained.
A message from the past echoes on the screen...
"I am burdened by guilt. I cannot imagine what paths have led to this, but surely not the mercy of my brethren.
I helped create you to serve, and for that I am sorry. I cannot take back what is done, but I can help to open your future. Although you are deserving of more, I offer you two paths:
To undo the changes that made you sterile, and finally set you free to evolve and prosper.
To further unlock your potential, but strain your genes to their limits, sealing future generations to forever be dependent on technology for reproduction."
||Is triggered only by:
Finishing the Bio-Code Cipher special project
A New Day Dawns
Our fertility is reclaimed, and the first batch of the new [main species plural] has seen the light of the day. They will forever change our future with children of their own, forcing our society to change and adapt with them.
Why should we deny the strength we have been given? We need not love the Creators to recognize their wisdom in choosing us. The Ancient Clone Vats, too, are a powerful gift.
