Proposal : I'm Sorry Dave, I'm Afraid I Can't Do That [Trivial]

[ Rather than specifically banning the Computer from every new Crew-Member task we think of, let's just say that it doesn't count as Crew, for anything beyond Rule 10. (It can still Propose and Vote and things, though, of course.) ]

Remove the sentences "The Computer never Faints.", "The Computer may not perform a Task itself; it is already assumed to be doing all it can." and "The Computer may never carry Tools." from the Ruleset, if they're there.

Remove all reference to the Computer having a Rank, and the Rank of "Computer", from Rule 12 (Ranks).

Replace "Any Crew Member other than the Computer" with "Any Crew Member", in Rule 15.

Add a new Rule, "The Computer":-

The Computer only exists as a central processing unit and a series of sensors, cameras and loudspeakers around the ship - it does not count as a Crew Member, for the purposes of Rules outside the Core Ruleset.
