The Clone Problem – Immortality can be deadly.
It’s 2179. Humanity has discovered the fountain of youth. Cloning technology and the Great Database give humans the ability to transfer their consciousness to new and improved cloned bodies. Living multiple lifetimes is a reality. Immortality is a very real possibility.
But this scientific breakthrough comes at a steep price. The former United States finds itself in the throes of a Civil War. After decades of relentless persecution, the Clones have seceded from the Union, created the Pacific States of America and declared war on their tyrannical Mortal neighbors to the east. But it is a war the Clones have little hope of winning. They are outgunned, and they are grossly outnumbered.
Jack Callahan is a Clone. Disillusioned with a lifetime of war, he is looking for a way out of his seemingly hopeless existence. He finds a glimmer of hope in his search for a mythical world that is said to exist beyond the boundaries of the Great Database. It is there that he hopes to find a way to end the war once and for all. But finding this mythical world is a race against the clock. After decades of searching, the Mortals have located the Great Database. They’re on their way, and they’re determined to destroy the Great Database and the Clones in one fell swoop.
