Oh good call. It also plays into the way Petey has gone on a "Make the Ob'enn a better race crusade".


'loyal to the race' would suggest 'go with what the race wants' more than the 'do what's best for them' though. And the Ob'enn clearly want to rule the galaxy, regardless of whether or not anyone else is left to be ruled.

Petey built an organic body with all of his memories, *but none of his compulsions*.

He's containing and rehabilitating the Ob'enn entirely on his own.


He probably used the hardware switch (if his new hardware has one) to make the AI loyal to the organic "node." If I were Petey, my next course of action would be to remove the switch and the programming that came with it, and melt the switch down to make commemorative coins or a nice paperweight.

For me Book 13 Random Access Memorabilia and part 5 of Book 11: Massively Parallel, Ms Damico just sucked as the enemy in the climax too incompetent to feel threatening yet it took way to long at 5 months to deal with her.

Big Dumb Objects Part I is pretty decent, and it stays that way through much of Part II, but then it rather goes downhill.
