A robot's interpretation of desires

New message from the
Kinetic Enhancement factory. Requesting clarification. Did
you wish to have a new reactor built, or a new ship?
Ship, are you still trying to maim, injure, or otherwise inconvenience me?
I am. Your removal increases the probability of getting a human captain.
Are you familiar with the third law of robotics?
A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law. Is it applicable to this conversation?
