Re: "Second Chances" and its disturbing implications

Another disturbing implication of the Riker style duplication, is that it would seem perfectly plausible to create a clone (or more) of oneself for nefaroius purposes.
Or for beneficial, altruist, beautiful, wonderful purposes, for that matter. Why should one concentrate on "nefarious" here?

Human existence is all about creating new human existence anyway. What's so negative about cloning as opposed to other types of breeding?

Actually, it is, per one of the early DS9 episodes.
"A Man Alone". But we don't know whose law we're talking about there. Bajoran law might be far more "archaic" in this respect than UFP law...

Unless you really mean because a child isn't fully formed yet, killing them isn't a crime.
In most places, it isn't.
