There was a click as the machine came to life – the second citizen of the Autocracy of Mars. We had sent SeeD, our first AI-powered rover, to prepare Mars for human colonization.

It had other plans.

We’ve already made a habit out of sending robots to Mars, with four rovers and a multitude of probes marking our presence on the red planet. With A.I. research advancing at leaps and bounds, it’s only a matter of time until we start using it for spacefaring purposes — we just have to hope they’re not the willful creatures scores of SciFi authors have painted them to be.
