A9 and E7’s plans for Mekman to induce freewill in all robots begins and Magnus’ job with Elzy’s goph salvage and reconstruction yard has a lot more problems than he expected in “Probes.”
E7 allows Mekman to study his robot brain, hoping to find a way to make all robots Freewill. But Mekman cannot do so due to his anti-criminal conditioning, so he turns himself in. Later, Magnus goes to free Elzy from trouble with North Am Security, only to find E7 rescuing Mekman from more psycho-probing! Magnus liberates Elzy and reports E7 to Freewill leader, Tekla, leaving Mekman to psycho-probe himself into oblivion!
