Re: why should drones be valid

Then let me expand. To simply repair shit, at best they need to steal metal and glass, maybe the odd circuitboard or extra wire, and parts if they replace machines but that's largely it.

Re: why should drones be valid

Remove drones.

For real though, if you want to use them as 'fix the station' then make that their laws explicitly. If you want to enable them to do autism projects even though they can't interact with the crew, why don't you just do it on a private server?
