Here's a thought.  What if your ship can only do one sort of test per specimen, before it dies and breaks down?  Then you do different tests on each one for a little data each time.  As for the Evil Ones, you lie to the Spathi about still having them alive.  ZEX's Beauty?  Unique, so it gives a lot without any tests.  But as for the price or why they want them, I don't know.

Perhaps the different amounts of data received depends on the creature's resistance to death, as opposed to stunning.

Hey, there's an idea.  So the more they can wring out of it, the more it's worth.

Mostly, yeah.  But I had thought that the Captain was the one doing the tests, and selling the Melnorme the results.  But your idea's good too.

Hey I like it. Although, I'm more for the idea of them actually wringing them out.
