Aboard the starship Undertoe, a skeleton crew of misfits takes orders from a smugly bureaucratic computer which couldn't care less if they live or die. The Undertoe is part of the Galactic Freedom Corporation, a huge interstellar conglomerate whose owner -- the inconceivably wealthy Largo Foote -- has a cunning scheme to seize control of the galactic economy.
Unaware that their ship is a key pawn in Largo's master plan, the crew just try to do their jobs, despite the fact that their assignments rarely make sense, and deadly peril seems to stalk them at every turn. As things go from bad to worse, the ship and crew are inexorably drawn to the astonishing Footesphere, Largo Foote's vast and top-secret private residence, where something sinister is afoot...
Set in a future that is both weird and weirdly familiar, Robot Captain is a comic sci-fi adventure filled with reluctant heroes, strange aliens, lunatic machines, and more than a few twisted surprises.
