The Relics Of Jegg-Sau
The colonists knew the risks about Jegg-Sau. With a flimsy atmosphere, no mineral wealth and exhausted soil, only the strongest and most determined could hope to make a home there. But with nowhere else to go, they went ahead, allegedly funded by a stock of valuable relics and art treasures stolen from Earth…
But the colony failed. Jegg-Sau was deserted once more, a home only to carrion and rusted dreams. But Bernice Summerfield believes the relics remained, and she’s come a long, long way in search of them. What she’ll find is that others have reached Jegg-Sau before her. She’ll find herself cat’s-paw in a dark outpost of frailty and obsession.
And she’ll find the robots.
- The Relics of Jegg-Sau was the third story of the fifth season of the Big Finish Bernice Summerfield series
- Irving Braxiatel had an extra power pack built into the communication panel of Benny’s shuttle, given her propensity to get into trouble.
- Professor J.P. Kettlewell and his first robot, the Experimental Prototype Robot K1, are mentioned.
- Kalwell was a failed historian and writer who learned that he was a direct descendant of Professor Kettlewell. Shortly after the Kalwells’ arrival on Jegg-Sau, the K1 robots created robotic facsimiles of them.
- The Kalwells were imprisoned in the dome. Although they eventually escaped, Elise was subsequently killed by the K1 robots.
- The K1 robots’ CPUs are based on human neural pathways whereas they are constructed from living metal, which is what enabled the original K1 robot to grow in size. Kalwell laments that Professor Kettlewell died before filing the patents of these inventions. Otherwise, Kalwell and his ancestors would have been incredibly wealthy.
- The Experimental Prototype Robot K1 first appeared in Robot.
- Kalwell tells Benny that the original K1 robot grew in size due to its construction from living metal. However, the incident was subsequently covered up by UNIT. (Robot)
