Carbon Copy is a Brickerton thread that was slightly off the typical Brickerton escapades of adventure, action, and gratuitous murder, instead focusing on some basic scientific concepts and the mayhem taking place inside a science facility. Said departure from the Brickerton norm was inspired by a biology class being taken at the time, specifically a section in the textbook about DNA and cloning.
