The Last Parsec: Mysteries of Eris Beta-V
Short Repair Robot
A basic technical droid often found on starships assisting the crew. It has short, stubby legs and three arms, one for tool use (such as a cutting laser) and the other two with vice-like pincers.
Socket is a lowly repair bot assigned to the Midnight Rose. His primary function is to repair broken systems on the ship. However, the previous owner of the vessel often made unorthodox repairs and thus altered Socket’s programming to wait until instructed to repair a system in a method approved by the instructing engineer before attempting to do so.
