It's a dead planet! A tomb! The sun's becoming a red giant! The only reason I care about this planet is that I promised the humans I'd have everything ready for them when they return to pick up some of the things they left behind. The robots were supposed to maintain the archives, but instead they're going around wrecking everything...and I'm the only one around to fix them. It's just my remaining shreds of responsibility before I leave this godforsaken rock for good and go back to my people.<P>Actually, there's no real need to go around mindlessly destroying robots. The only reason my brother thinks so is because he seems to think he's in some kind of video game. That's why I've locked him in the docking bay.
I'm only going to take a robot out of commission if it gets in my way on my way to the main computer. From there I can shut all the robots down and re-program them.<p>[This message has been edited by Ceph (edited 01-06-2002).]
