So Nimue's DNA may exist in digital form somewhere in OWL's database. If it does, then surely the technology exists for nannites to splice and dice and replicate digital DNA. Add that to an unfertilized egg, and you get a baby girl! (Because Nimue is female and has no Y chromosome.)
So Nynian and Merlin can have a baby and name her Guenevere. I bet they'd outfit her with a NEAT too. No reason for Aunt Nimue to be smarter than their little girl!
Not to be a nitpicker, but since both Merlin and Nimue are picas there are no other chromosomes either.
