When mankind begins to journey to the stars, confrontations are likely. The earliest of these confrontations are likely to be handled by mankind’s proxies, his robotic creations.
Mankind will be acutely aware that any proxy that can confront another civilization can confront mankind’s as well, so safeguards will be built in.
This is the story of a creation dealing with this duality.
