The Tyrell Corporation has announced its new Nexus-6 Roy Batty replicant has been retired at birth ‘to save trouble later’.
The Corporation made the decision after seeing warnings on the Internet that the unit may go on a rampage in a few years time.
Tyrell took the time to extend his thanks to eagle-eyed web users pointing out Batty’s birthday and highlighting potential future risks.
“We had been planning to send him on a galaxy-wide tour of duty,” Tyrell Corporation spokeswoman Rachel Williams told us.
“Probably taking in areas like Orion and the Tannhauser Gate.
“Gosh, putting it like that really makes you think of the things he might have seen, doesn’t it?
“Still, no loss, eh?”
The Corporation went on to announce their new Nexus-6 Rick Deckard model is to be discontinued due to ‘attitude problems’.
