Bob Johansson has just sold his software company and is looking forward to a life of leisure. There are places to go, books to read, and movies to watch. So it's a little unfair when he gets himself killed crossing the street. Bob wakes up a century later to find that corpsicles have been declared to be without rights, and he is now the property of the state. He has been uploaded into computer hardware and is slated to be the controlling AI in an interstellar probe looking for habitable planets.

The story was over too soon, and I'll be getting the next episode asap. The performance was extraordinarily good - so many characters with distinctive and memorable voices. All the Bob's were subtly different, and the performer brought it all to life in the most compelling way. Bring on the next volume!
