“I listen to the gas giant, Dâk-Kir.”
Tarkos frowned. This didn’t seem the best time for radio astronomy. But then, in a flash, a thought hit him. He furrowed his brow. “You miss space, don’t you?”
“My functions are unrealized,” the robot said, “when I am bound within ships or low in a gravity disturbance.”
