Re: automated ships a good or bad idea?

Amusingly, we have about as many stories of machines going haywire as we have stories of benign machinery becoming a terrible threat because the human element is inserted. Madmen, steel-nerved criminals, cornered heroes and good-intentioned innocents all take turns in using machinery and automation for evil.

In terms of crime/disaster prevention, removing the people would probably help as much as removing the automation. And the former action would still allow the missions to be conducted, while the latter perhaps would not.
