Since we have the protein stealing cell membrane and the spikes, I think we should use the spikes to stick to one of the developing multicellular organisms and absorb food from it directly as a parasite. I'll change my vote if my new team disagrees or if this is too large a change.

I did have a similar plan of that, but instead using one large spike that act like a proboscis to stab into prey "if multicellular work". But your vote is more better of a idea for a parasitic like organism anyways. So yeah seen like a good vote to me.

Develop cells that can contract and expand,
thus allowing the organism to move in an eel-like fashion to increase its speed when in danger or chasing prey.

I would rather not go completely parasitic and would prefer focusing on being multicellular at the moment

I do have to agree with your point there, due to Multicellular is my main target as well.

I strongly reccomend that one of you changes your vote, as these two forms of locomotion require entirely different body plans and aren't really compatible. If I may, evolving some sort of fins in order to more efficiently swim as well as stabilise the body would benefit either of the two votes you have suggested.
But what if they roll max on both :P?
Thats the thing, I just don't know how I could incorporate both designs into one. If someone can offer a valid example/explanation as to why its plausible then I'm all ears, but otherwise they can't do it.
It's fine I can change my vote. Find at each end of the tube.

You're on Team Prometheus with Tiberius and myself. I'm trying to fix our non-adaptive immune system so that the viruses won't just evolve around our defenses and annihilate us. We also need a proper stomach, as cytophagy just isn't cutting it for something this big and active.
