Jitig is a colony world composed largely of crystalline carbon, which results in high surface gravity. Consequently, all manual labour has to be performed by heavy-duty worker robots called Crütonnes. The Inspector is called in when they began to show signs of self-awareness and worker unrest.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- With the new discovery of a pulsar by British astronomers, the writers decided to work in the idea that Jitig orbited a neutron star (which has since been shown to be an unbelievably inhospitable environment).
