A Robot Named Clunk is one part buddy movie, two parts laughter and three parts madcap adventure.
Clunk’s grateful when his boss sends him off for a refit, because old robots are usually junked. So what’s the catch?
Well, before the refit he must help a freelancer pick up some cargo.
Landing in a deserted field under cover of darkness, avoiding customs ships, orbital lasers and trigger-happy warships along the way, is not a problem for Clunk.
The freelance pilot is a much bigger challenge, because Hal Spacejock is obstinate, over-confident, and woefully under-skilled, and yet he refuses to cede control of his ship to a mere robot.
Can the two of them sort out their differences and deliver the cargo, or will they still be wrestling over the controls when the deadline expires?
