Crichton? Yes. A truly remarkable robot, I tell you.
That's the understatement of the century.
Century? No, no. Not century, Colonel - millennium. Do you know he's absorbed an entire millennium in the last three days? And he's extraordinarily attuned to the unusual. Do you know what he said to me this morning? He told me that the tongue - listen to this - The tongue of a blue whale can weigh as much as a full-grown elephant.
Oh, come, Doctor. That's a little hard to believe.
Difficult to swallow, you mean?

Crichton is a robot invented by Dr. Goodfellow, a scientist aboard to the starship Searcher, in 2492 CE.

Goodfellow, assisted by Twiki, assembles Crichton and brings the robot online during Searcher's expedition to find the lost colonies of Earth. While Crichton has previously unmatched abilities to acquire and disseminate information, Crichton has features that belie its intellect, including a haughty arrogance above humans—despite its inability to defy orders per the Three Laws of Robotics (BR25: "Time of the Hawk").
