The Original 15 Nublar Embryos

posted by Cyberscribe on - last edited - Viewed by 824 users

When Nedry stole all 15 embryos which dinosaurs were they? I'm curious, When did the park brochure that included dinosaurs such as Baryonyx, Segisaurus, and Herrerasaurus appear on screen in the original movie? Because if it wasn't shown at all then wouldn't that bring into question the original 15 embryos? Help me out people what were they? And provide evidence if you can.

    Exactly. That's why we can't count them out of the list just yet until it's been been CONFIRMED that they are an unnatural occurrence on the island.

    My theory is this... the troodons are a known species to InGen, and have been eating toxic plant's throughout the environment (may not be so IDK if they're omnivourous) and like the poisen dart frog (amphibian DNA) have developed a venom from the plants.

    NOTE: Poisen Dart Frogs are harmless if denied the plant they eat that makes them toxic.

  • @jmine83 said: As for Compsognathus, for anyone who has been to the JP Ride in Hollywood, pay close attention to the video presentation that you watch while you're waiting in line. It's been a long time since I've been when the ride was brand new, "but" one of the big, unique little bits of commentary that the video presentation went into that caught my attention, was of the "vital" importance that Compies serve in the park; i.e. as the dung beetles of the dinosaur world. Apparently according to the lore of JP, Compies were discovered to have a natural tendency for eating the droppings of the other dinosaurs and thus helping to manage the cleanliness of the dinosaur paddocks. Sounds critically important to me.



    Well, since we are going off movie canon, Compsognathus had no mention of having that role in the park whatsoever in the films. In fact, this "privelege" if you want to call it that went to Procompsognathus in the novels and is a totally different species and more closely related to Segisaurus than any other dinosaur in this series including Compsognathus. So for integrity's sake, I think that Segisaurus should replace any speculative views of having Compys on Nublar. Segisaurus might have even replaced the Procomp's role of eating the sauropod waste in the films. Thereby saving room for Troodon to be entered on the list if necessary.

  • Original 15?:
    1.Tyrannosaurus*
    2. Velociraptor*
    3. Dilophosaurus*
    4. Brachiosaurus
    5. Parasaurolophus*
    6. Triceratops*
    7. Gallimimus
    8. Stegosaurus
    9. Metriacanthosaurus
    10. Proceratosaurus
    11. Herrerasaurus*
    12. Segisaurus
    13. Baryonyx
    14. Compsognathus*
    15. Mosasaurus*/Pteranodon*

    Secret Dino: Troodon*, Mosasaurus*/Pteranodon?*

    *= Confirmed as being in JP the game

    I'm guessing either Mosasaurus or Pteranodon are not included in the original 15 just like Troodon.

  • up until now, only thirteen genera have ever been confirmed to be on isla nublar on film, either through being seen on screen, on the embryo tubes, or on the park map in the brochure. the sequels, however, added several more genera, both through direct and indirect evidence.

    it recently occurred to me, and correct me if i'm wrong, that the only mention of there being only fifteen species on the island (in the film, anyway) came from dodgson in his conversation with nedry in san jose. that being said, i would suspect, being from biosyn, that dodgson may have had limited knowledge of what ingen was working on, because it's quite obvious that they had upward of twenty species between what was seen on nublar, what was seen on sorna, and what was indirectly referenced on screen. this may be another loophole that both the filmmakers and telltale could exploit to increase the number of genera without contradiction. nedry, as a known mole and the developer of the park's systems, would at least be familiar with the animals in the park, but may have known about others. of course, dodgson may have had other moles, but, either way, between nedry and whoever else may have been feeding biosyn info, the combined list had been maxed out at fifteen by the time nedry stole the embryos. that being said, nedry may have encountered embryos in cold storage that neither he nor anyone else in contact with biosyn may have known about prior to the theft. just some food for thought...

  • One thing that bugs me, both in that brochure and the one TellTale is doing...the brochure either has the car track going the wrong way, or they have the Dilophosaur enclosure on the wrong side of the road. In the movie, Richard Kiley says, "If you look on your right, you'll see one of the first dinosaurs on our tour, called Dilophosaurus." Going by that map, the Dilophosaurs would've been on the LEFT.

  • @hiplobonoxa: So I don't remember but is it stated that there are only 15 species on the first island? Maybe when Dodgson told Nedry to get all 15, he meant the max amount of slots the Barbasol can could carry. If so, could there be more embryos in storage somewhere else?

    It's possible. In the video about the troodon quarantine pens it mentions that all of the troodon embryos were stored elsewhere to remove them from the current stock since they felt that the troodon's were not a favorable species to feature at the park.

  • Actually I was thinking that if Telltale wanted to, they could have more dinos that aren't mentioned elsewhere as non-public dinos. Maybe they wouldn't be officially introduced/updated into park advertising until a while after the park opens. This could include dinos like Mosasaur.
