Heart of the colony

"After the quarantine of the parasitoids they became a subject of high intrigue. As they are highly self sustaining and sentient some had concerns of quarantining them on a small rock in space. Unable to die or move it seemed like it perhaps would be best to evaporate it to extinction rather than to subject it to such imprisonment. Others believe it is more merciful or that it is more important to study it, so letting it live on the rock is a better alternative to its extinction. All the while many more would call it to be destroyed as it is a sentient creature that was created. On the fringes there even are people calling it to be taken out of quarantine. While it is quarantined on the asteroid it remains a difficult problem to the space faring peoples, not from a militaristic perspective, but that of ethics."
