[0.9-1153-g324a8a7] Wandering undead scientists?

So I’m 13 days into a new game and building my vehicle in a bar across from the church and there are zombie scientists, plural, wandering the streets now. This town was absolutely tiny (Three Houses, a Bar, Two Liquor Stores, and a Church)

Where the hell did the zombie scientists come from?

This sounds cool just saying.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s making things interesting but at the same time why scientists? They’re deploying manhacks to counter my manhacks and those damn skitterbots are apparently made from a dead star, the corpses weigh in at 600+ LBS
