It was risky cloning the Captain. We weren’t sure McClain was actually dead. Also, if his reputation was accurate, cloning the man might be the last thing we ever did.
What other choice did we have?
Clone McClain learned Standard in three weeks. We had not enhanced him so this was unexpected.
When he was two months old, he told us to quit the bullshitting and tell us what we’d made him for.
I’m not a stutterer, but I could hardly put two words together. “To save the world!” I spurted.
He was everything we’d hoped and everything we’d feared.
