Pilot Pirx’s Inquest

Pilot Pirx’s Inquest


Marek Piestrak

1979, 1 h 35 min

Nearby future. Electronic syndicate designs a model of a ‘nonlinear’ – an android thought competent to substitute man. To verify this information, the UNESCO organises a mission to Saturn, in which Prix, a pilot with an impeccable record, is to assess the usefulness of ‘nonlinears’ for service in space. Prix knows that among his crew, there’s a robot, but he doesn’t know his identity. During the expedition, he tries to find out the truth playing a dangerous game with the anonymous opponent. The “nonlinear”
proves to be a life-threatening danger for the entire crew. Only human weakness can stand against the perfection of artificial creation.
