Black Market Clones Print

Source: The Best Kind of Revenge; Background info

Hundreds of small companies exist in the fringes of space that cater to those who either can't afford or are banned from the big-name cloning companies. Naturally, there is a much greater risk with these organizations. No regulations means there are no guarantees of revival, and there are many stories of capsuleers waking up in distant backup cloning facilities after their local clone never activated. For most capsuleers this represents only a minor convenience, since very few are foolish enough to place their lives in the hands of questionable company.

For those criminals who can pay, the clones are nearly as safe as the Empire ones, a fact that has stymied efforts to curb the proliferation of capsuleer outlaws, and allowed them to move about the cluster with the freedom capsuleers are famous for.
