My fellow colonists. Mr. Kornada attempted to release a safeguard program that would have affected the robots neural nets. The details are in your juror's files.
It would have turned self-motivated robots into robots that require constant human supervision. He did it to get at the assets under robot control. That's like driving a truck through a store wall to get at the cash register. The commission of the crime would have caused more damage than the crime itself.
It's bad enough he tried to steal from everybody. But to make a mess while doing so is just plain inconsiderate.
A license. Is required to drive. One must be certified. To operate heavy equipment. Given access. To artificial intelligence, Mr. Kornada could command. Fleets of vehicles. And heavy equipment. With no training. And no certification.
Was it responsible to. Give this power to. A man. With less common sense. Than a beach ball?
Objection. Our beach balls have wi-fi and are pretty darn smart.
Mr. Kornada, you can not object to your own defense. And your beach balls had very poor security.
Which is why I was able to improve sales by labeling them as “botnet ready”.
Mr. Kornada has made. Mistakes before. Each time. He was given. A golden review. To entice. Another organization. Into taking him. At a higher paying. Position.
Reinforcement training. Has conditioned Mr. Kornada. To expect this. He has an overwhelming. Sense of entitlement. And the belief. He will not be held responsible. For his errors.
Corporate version. Far more common. And just as toxic. As the strain. Patient zero. Had on Earth.
Потреблятство или афлюэнца – гибрид изобилия и гриппа (affluence и influenza), уже такой термин сложился и даже книжку успели издать.
У нас вообще-то принято писать через “д”, усиливая эмоциональную окраску, но это уж слишком непарламентское изречение тогда получается. (KALDYH)

When Mr. Ishiguro was off planet, his passcode was available to Mr. Kornada for emergency use. Being a vice president, Mr. Kornada now had two passcodes, which could release safeguard programs.
Fifteen days ago, the vault was accessed and a safeguard program downloaded to the robot Clippy. It must have been frustrating to Mr. Kornada because for the next ten days, he couldn't get the robot to fully release it.
Objection. Speculation of. Mr. Kornada's. Mental state.
No, no. He's right. I was frustrated.
Your honor. I would like. To make the motion. To sequester. My client.
Clippy tried several times to show Mr. Kornada how debilitating the safeguard program was. Still, Mr. Kornada ordered him to proceed.
Five days ago, after the final course correction was made for the moon insertion, the program was put in the update queue. Mr. Kornada ordered the employee to place it. Mr. Kornada's digital signature is on the program release. Everything is documented.
Let that be a lesson to you. If your employees start documenting everything you do, they're about to turn traitor.
Perhaps. It is a signal. To re. Evaluate. Your actions.
Bah. You are a waste of my mentoring.
Debilitate переводится как “истощать”, “расслаблять”, но по смыслу тут лучше всего подойдёт языковая калька. (KALDYH)
Now you might think this is enough to convict anyone. But wait! There's more! Recently, two robotic factories almost went to war.
Your files contain the details. Basically, a different part was sabotaged at each power plant. The robots were sent to raid their neighbor's power plant while protecting their own. These orders were authorized by Mr. Kornada.
You did. Not. Tell me of this.
The war didn't happen and surely you can't expect me to remember all the times I ALMOST cost my company money.
