The term robot refers to a variety of artificial, often mechanical, technologies which act with a purpose. Robots range from simple programmable artificial devices to complex self-aware artificial intelligences.
Independent robots were not incorporated into the Federation for fears of the "Frankenstein syndrome", but did exist in places like the Vega system. (TOS comic: "Robot", TOS audiobook: The Robot Masters)
History and specificsEdit
In 2269, there were no robots aboard the Enterprise during its brief takeover by a magnetic organism which could manipulate mechanical devices. This forced it to compel ship's personnel to obey its requests. (TAS - Log One novelization: Beyond the Farthest Star)
