In the movie of 'Oblivion' Jack Harper and Victoria Olsen are clones of their former self. It isn't shown in the movie that if they can have a baby together but if we assume that there can be cloned humans, Can they reproduce or they will be sterile?

    There can be cloned humans, cloning is fairly simple at its most basic. Cloning fully grown individuals with memories intact however.

Normal clones are the same as any other biological entity, so as long as there is no genetic defect leading to sterilization, then a clone would be able to reproduce naturally.

However in the context of the movie, we don't know what kind of technology the Tet used to clone them; it can be inferred that some form of accelerated aging is used, which may damage the reproduction ability. Further, its likely that the Tet would sterilize its clones as a matter of course.


From the film Oblivion it is apparent that Jack-49 is fertile as he is the father of Julia's daughter.

  • Hi, I saw it too but the female person was Julia (a normal human), so could Victoria have that condition? Commented Oct 10, 2015 at 16:53

    @S.GOLIZADEH it is impossible to draw any conclusions about Victoria's fertility status from the information available in the film. Commented Oct 13, 2015 at 14:58
