Phil arrives for his interview on a corporate satellite orbiting a brown dwarf near the dark cluster. And he finds himself up against a number of Sfroga who are applying for the same assignment. Given his own species’ reputation, he feels he’s got a good chance of snagging a contract.
It turns out, to his surprise that his interviewer is a clone of an infamous leader of a genocidal race that once viewed his species as a tasty snack. Luckily the clone is looking for a worker, not a meal, so Phil submits to the interview.
As it turns out, however, getting the job hinges on whether he has a clone – which he doesn’t – and he is left scrambling for a way to convince the interviewer to hire him.
