With an atomic powered battery sporting a half-life of 3,500,000 years and a multipurpose gripping claw and dual hover-orb propellant systems, the repair Droid D0bb-3i was perfectly suited for an Utility Assistants position on virtually any long distance space craft meant to explore and colonize the universe.
What D0bb-3i was LESS suited for, however, was being the sole survivor of a fission-related mishap that caused his space-craft he was employed on to explode as soon as it began to leave Earth’s orbit.
With his communication antenna damaged by the blast, and his normally sufficient hover-orbs powerless when attempting to travel across open space, the repair Droid is slowly pulled into Earth’s orbit… where for thousands of years he rotates around the globe, his strong atomic battery keeping him alive and alert.
Over time, more and more space junk and debris joins D0bb-3i, and eventually the garbage develops into beautiful, multi-coloured rings that can be seen for millions of miles. Imagining Earth without its famous rings becomes impossible for any citizen of the galaxy, and the memory of a ringless planet is a distant and unfathomable one.
Over even more time, the space junk surrounding the Earth begins to obscure almost all natural sunlight, so a controversial and expensive plan to de-ringify the Rings of Earth is embarked upon— and finally, after 273,879 years of orbiting the Earth, the droid D0bb-3i is discovered and rescued safe and sound.
He is reunited with his robot wife and two robot children, and wrote a book about the experience called “It Was Fine At First and Then Got Really Boring”.
