Or merely that—library androids and not soldiers. They might have their own "three laws" and go down quietly while sounding a silent alarm. The real Atoz did show up very quickly to deal with the situation.
Exactly. If I had a replica to, say, wash dishes, take phone messages, etc., there's no reason I could expect it to deal with intruders and such. Losira's had that 'I-must-touch-you' thing going on, but beyond that apparently no 'fighting skills' per se.
It even took the real Atoz to try and push Kirk through the portal in that shopping cart.
