Not nad, but such unrealistic teen dialogue.

Commodore's watch

This was fascinating to listen to. I was in my teen years when these radio dramas captivated me every night. I had forgotten how scary the idea of cloning was at that time. Even now, I would recognize that if science could clone a person, that new person would be identical to the one they cloned, but it would be a baby with none of the life experiences of the "parent". In that sense, it would be a unique person - probably far more different than a set of twins are - because the influences of a different time. And yet, science fiction - even today - always wants to make a clone an identical person - as if there were two of the same person. But, this story did bring back a real fear that cloning was. (Even cloning a sheep was not done - until, I think the mid 1990s - 20 years after this episode)
