Earth, 2508 A.D. Humans have spread across the six arms of the Milky Way Galaxy. The Unified Authority controls Earth’s colonies with an iron fist and a powerful military—a military made up almost entirely of clones…

I mean, this civilization can create a army for clones, who are programmed not to know they are clones, but if they do figure out they are clones they die? If you can program in a (kill switch) doesn't that mean your first bit of programming was flawed and you are hoping another piece of programming will catch any mistakes? The logic just didn't work for me.
