Short Circuit

Number 5 is alive! – a robot in the SAINT (Strategic Artificially Intelligent Nuclear Transport) series has gone haywire. A million to one chance has resulted in a lightning bolt striking the automaton and bringing it consciousness.

Now the scientist who put him together wants to take him apart again to find out what went wrong. The President of Nova Robotics wants to capture him before the weapons he is carrying kill millions of civilians – and the security chief wants to blow him up so that he can get home in time for dinner.

You are Number five… You are alive and you aim to stay that way!
