Fair enough.

But if a human has skill 12+ and the AI has skill 6 with a plus 6 or more when in certain very narrow technical situations, the human looks awfully attractive.

I just don't know how effective the cheap 'AIs' in Flat Black are. Maybe the ones that are common are just really advanced interface expert systems. With no independent judgment.

But even when weapons are free, it's a sticking point with the Empire that humans are involved in all decisions that could kill people.

And that's what I assumed was the job of the gunners here. Be present as a human with judgment.
