Working Title: For Science!: From YKTTW For Science!

I'd like to ask, would the Space Pirates from the Metroid series fit this trope? They're unethical, use their own as test subjects, and produce a lot of Cool, but Inefficient tech. A number of the scans from Metroid Prime show just how unethical their experiments get.

Crowley: No, because while the Space Pirates do conduct experiments, they all have one purpose: to help their goal of galactic conquest by developing new and better weapons, rather than For Science!.

Air Of Mystery: Can we replace that picture with this one from SMBC?

Dave: Seconded! That comic was the first thing I thought of. :D

Earnest: I went ahead and switched the pic, moved it to Potential Applications where it has better context.
