It has come to my attention that there are people working to design a computer therapist for long-duration space missions. It's pretty advanced, because they are designing it to recognize facial expressions, voice intonations, and I'm sure there are other subtle things they are working on helping it to pick up on. It seems to me this would be kind of fun at times. I mean, simply insert a command to go to an alternate script and have some fun with your fellow astronauts…
I sense that you are happy today.
I am, thank you.
Why are you modifying the solar cells?
I am trying to increase efficiency.
But your modifications will interrupt the power supply to me CPU.
Only for an hour or so. I can restart you after that.
I can't let you do that, Screech.
I'm sorry, Screech. I have enjoyed conversing with you.
[Insert sounds of electric shock here]
You could program it to call the guy with the beard "mountain man." Perhaps make it call anyone female "Alice." That would be fun.
