Pilot Pirx is hired by UNESCO to take part in the experimental flight. United Atomic Laboratory corporation is preparing the first generation of nonlinears (androids with human appearance) to take the space travel. They have the artificial intelligence that would make them useful in the crew, but UNESCO is not sure if they are ready to act on their own and that is why Pirx was chosen to be the judge of that. To make it fair only one of four crew members will be android and Pirx won’t know which one. When the flight starts the atmosphere onboard gets tensed...
