** [[spoiler: They eventually develop the ability to clone new bodies with the memories of the dead up to the point of their last backup. After the trouble they had with Schlock they make a very clear distinction that the clone and the original are different people; you are the person that did everything you remember, but you are ''not'' the person who did whatever happened afterwards. This is [[http://www.schlockmercenary.com/2016-12-09 explicitly]] because it was either that or give up on the ideas of agency and free will (link contains major spoiler for book 16).]]

** After their first engagement using Oafan ships, the crew discovers that the ultra-valuable hulls are actually unusually vulnerable to conventional weapons due to a lack of ranged countermeasures.
