    • Isaac Asimov
      It is explained that Twiki and Crichton have positronic brains. Science fiction writer Isaac Asimov first conceived of the idea as a way to provide robots with advanced artificial intelligence and consciousness. Also, Admiral Asimov is said to be a descendant of Isaac, however he did not create the robots (Twiki was manufactured at the Ambuquad factory and later helped Doctor Goodfellow create Crichton.)
