The remote control is a near indestructible item used to control the Android. A remote control is created when the android is rebuilt after death at the Arbitress Metal Fabricator. By activating the remote you either align the android with your role (if it is aligned with a different role) or you activate/deactivate it. The deactivation of an android can interrupt channeled abilities including the Tactical Nuke. The remote can also permanently shut off the android if the android activates it as it will be trapped in its inventory and unable to be used (Note a Strength Alien may be able to use Sly Tentacles to steal it).
