The memory card is dropped by the android on death in addition to its inventory. The card is indestructible in most cases and gives the android a small area of vision. The android may also send messages as text above the card and type -shutdown to destroy the card and become a normal spectator. The card may also be destroyed if left on a station or ship that is subsequently destroyed.

When the card is brought to the Arbitress Metal Fabricator it is removed from your inventory and replaced with a Remote Control.
