In the next Clone Codes installment, Houston, a Cyborg, tells his story. Set in the year 2130, the World Federation of Nations determines through laws and regulations that all enhanced persons with three or more synthetic body or organ replacements are classified as three-fifths of a human being. As such, Houston is considered less than human, and must fight to overcome the rules of his strange universe. Drawing on parallels to slavery, terrorism, caste system oppression, and war, listeners confront the troubling and complex moral questions probed throughout history.
