Book 2: The Teraport Wars — The Teraport Wars


Kevyn: I've cloned myself, but my original self is probably dead by now.
Gav-0: Megiddo was that on edge when you stepped through?
Kevyn: I wasn't going to wait for him to decide when to kill us. I planned to collapse that mini-gate once trinko and I were safely copied.The way that room is laid out, I figured I could generate a steep gravity pulse and catch all of megiddo's goons with a makeshift gravy gun.
Gav-0: A gravy gun powered by a wormgate? You could take down a warship with that, if you could make it work.Of course, without any dampers, you'd be killing yourself, too.
Gav-0: That begs a question: Does it count as selfless sacrifice if you clone yourself before your suicide mission?
Kevyn: I'm putting it in my resume and hoping nobody asks.
