METALHEADS & MEATHEADS
"We're expendable. We don’t matter to you. We’re just robots, whether we have feelings or not."
THE SOPHONT TRILOGY (book 2)
A sophont android, Sylas, who was constructed without the emotion inhibitor that is legally required to be installed into every sophont android, spearheads a Sophont Rights Movement with the aim of giving his fellow androids the autonomy that he himself enjoys.To this end, he recruits other androids to join his cause.
One of them, Paul, is given a specific task – to prevent the recovery of the very first sapient android who has been abandoned on a distant planet.
Like all sophont androids, Paul wishes no harm to any human being, but faces a dilemma when it appears that he may have no choice but to go against Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics if he is to successfully complete his mission.
