Re: Mimes talking with emotes = valid?

No, it shouldn't make mimes valid.

Re: crystal invasion event (cheese skellies)

They were there because the SM delaminated and was about to explode, with more power than a regular delamination but not enough to cause a tesla. But instead of explode, it gave the crew one last chance to salvage it.

The point was to complete the event and through this restore the SM.
