Sure. The robots simply scraped up some more raw material, fabricated replacements for the pilfered components, and installed them. In fact, I've always scratched my head at the "talented thief" remark. Why would a mining/refining facility on a planet use starship control panels anyway?
"The way that you wander is the way that you choose. / The day that you tarry is the day that you lose. / Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder / Where the fair wind blows ..."
