    Ideas that I like include:
    - Synthesis
    - Biomass
    - Gaia


    Of course, Catalyst would work too. Bonus points if you work cata packs into the update. :P

    When Genesis was first suggested I thought, "that's it. Brilliant!"... but, one thing keeps me now from declaring it the winner.
    Genesis invokes a strong idea of a "beginning". We are far from a beginning either in storyline or in development... so sadly that one doesn't win my favor.

    I would definetely prefer something containing the word "Bio" somehow. Something that dedicates the next big feature for the next big update.

    My suggestions:

    NS2 - BioLife
    NS2 - Biolicious
    NS2 - BioRealm
    NS2 - Bionism
    NS2 - BioLeech
    NS2 - BioWar

    i like "evolved", but it seems too common.
    What makes species evolve and Natural Selection happening?

    Genetic recombination, and Mutations.

    Aw, I'm not good at names, but I got the perfect tag line:
    In Space... <artistic pause> penguins can fly **

    **Note: This plays off on the well-known fact that the mascot of linux is the penguin.

    I think "Evolved", although common, sounds pretty good. It's something everyone will understand, it's tied to the NS theme, and it inherently suggests some form of improvement.

    Also, technically, it's population pressure that causes evolution, and not mutations. The latter happens all the time, randomly, in every living organism, yet there are species which have hardly changed for millions of years, simply due to the lack of significant population pressure. In other words, mutations are not actually the driving force behind evolution, they're just the facilitator, and if there's no new external pressures to naturally select any new traits, a species could just stay thesame indefinitely. :)
