2 years ago... The Bytowne Gazette Robin, your expose on the secret government task force is amazing! As Editor, I don't normally print articles without checking the research first. But this is a huge story, and we have to act fast. Trust me, Phil. The only way this could go south would be if somebody stole all my research, and my informant went silent. What are the chances? Mom, do you believe in hindsight? I believe you'll regret wearing those pants in 20 years.

The Story

The Good Little Robot is stranded here on Earth. With no way home, he tries to make the best of things by fitting into society. He gets a dull job, makes friends with Francis, a quiet sheep, and Robin, a young data-entry clerk who longs to get her journalism career back on track. A top secret, yet mostly inept government agency whose purpose is apparently to cover up the truth about extra-terrestrial life on Earth quickly catches wind of robot's existence, and makes his life a little more interesting than he would have liked.
