One of these stories is a classic Which one is the real one and whom do I shoot story Another uses the cliche robot uprising trope, though it is pointed out in the introduction that this was prior to it being overused I m not so sure about this, but without some references off the top of my head, I can t dispute it right now And Spock being viewed as a God and as a guardian of a planet is entertaining.
