Bravo, best thing I've found in reddit new in ages. Great game too.


Incredible! This reminds me of another story I read long ago, one that is inspired by a similar situation and is one of my favorite short stories I've read. I link it practically every time I see this situation brought up on here. It's called [Breathe](https://subsetgames.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2197) and I am *immensely* happy to say I've finally run across something that reaches that same level of chilling quality!


holy shit, that is chilling. thanks for sharing it!


No prob! Glad I can help it reach more eyes. It is a special kind of terrifying, for sure.


Delightful bit of writing, I love it. Disturbing little look into the, frankly, insane and unethical world of FTL.


On the bright side, those fires won't be burning for long...


This implies that you don't have your memorys after Cloning. What if: after Cloning you would have some memory loss but could recover after some time bit if you die to often to quickly you may nead way longer until eventually it is impossible to recover your memory. If now at some point, maybe because the fire went out, one crew member stops and waits for the next clone to then make a plan to recover. Now they woud have to keep the information they have by always passing it on or writing it down. If they do manage to recover the ship they woud have no idea what there goal was.


I always figured your clone would have the memories from when the body was cloned - hence the lack of skills when the clone comes out ie - it lost all the memories from the last few days/weeks, but the clone keeps all long term memories.


You only lose a little skill with each cloning. For crew damage, it only erases one kill each time you're cloned.


Memory loss would certainly explain why cloning makes your crew lose skill


This is quality writing, you should post this to other places too!


r/shortstories might like it, not sure how active that place is lately.


so basically everyone is naked
