Omega Nest
The OMEGA nest is a little hive of artificially-grown organo-mechanical creatures about the of a large grapefruit. It attaches to one of your ship's auxiliary mounts, with the hive entrance facing forwards. The nest is kept in an agitated state via your PSI unit, and when the hive door is opened, a swarm of the creatures will launch themselves from the nest, attacking whatever they can find. They're capable of cracking through steel plate, hunting for liquids, heat sources, and of course, humans to kill. May attack your allies if you're not careful.
