besides, the round-eyed one is the one inciting the other to disobey and cause havoc - that's not very zen.

evil drone is evil.

Notice that the drone doesn't say purpose or function but mission. A mission is, by definition, a course of action which eventually reaches an end, which one either accomplishes or fails to accomplish.

So, what exactly has to happen to result in the drones' mission ending (whether successfully or otherwise)? Something to wonder about. Or not.

"Our mission is to survey and monitor the..."

The what?

Or who?

"its continuing mission to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations...."

we've certainly got new life, what with pebbles and the fembot and whatever else has undergone transformations into a new form.

we've got strange new worlds, all the "*tron needs" ones (although they seem to be exploring us)

civilization, now...not sure how we are doing on civilization. maybe that's what they are surveying.



(but actually, i think big d is just surveying and monitoring his customer base, along with any potential competitors.)
