Waking up for the first time isn’t that bad, comparatively. You open new eyes and hear Aura’s voice welcoming you to wherever you had a medical clone stashed. Most of us head straight for our new pod. If you aren’t in your pod, someone actually could kill you for real. They don’t allow weapons on station, but there's always something. Heavy paperweight, shard of glass, a shoelace around your neck from behind. It wouldn’t be easy, but in a long enough career you’re going to give someone a good reason. It’s better to stay in your pod, with the equipment that will read your brain-state if you’re about to die and transmit it to your clone.
