Dwayne's Wednesday Robot Romper Room

Android Kirk: In the 1966 episode of Star Trek named "What Are Little Girls Made Of?" Dr. Korby replaces Captain James T. Kirk with an android. The plan is to take over the Enterprise and fill the universe with robots. Kirk is able to alter his replacement's programming to key Spock into the fact something is not quite right. So, in the end Dr. Korby (a robot), Dr. Brown (a robot), Andrea (a beautiful robot who has her programming altered by a kiss from Kirk, naturally), Ruk (an evil robot), and robot Kirk all die in a kind of robot holocaust. There is a question that must be asked here. If Ruk and Korby are able to create robots shouldn't they also be able to make enough robots to manufacture their own starship. In the long term it would have saved a lot of robot's lives.
