A major corporation produces human-like robots; however, the public opinion, the media and the trade unions oppose it. A decision is made to conduct an experiment. An experienced pilot is to fly a spaceship to Saturn and launch two artificial satellites from there. The crew will be made up of androids, and the commander must evaluate the work of his unusual team. To accomplish the flight, pilot Pirx is chosen, who is known for his honesty and integrity. His ill wishers from the corporation are afraid that Pirx’s opinion might upset the profitable production, so they take measures… Pirx wins in the confrontation between a human being and androids. In a difficult situation, he was helped by a member of his crew – Tom Novak. Pirx was shocked when he learned that Novak was an android, too.
