Android police officer Eve Edison - MANN & MACHINE

Sgt. Eve Edison (Yancy Butler) worked for the Los Angeles police department in the near future of the 21st century. Her human partner, homicide detective Bobby Mann (David Andrews) monitored Eve, the department's latest gizmo in the war against crime.

Eve was hard-wired with a neural net that allowed her to learn from experience She began with the emotional maturity index of a seven-year-old. Eve's brain downloads her experiences directly into a computer (the Advanced A.I. Work Station Computer).

Her additional gadgetry included artificial sweat glands, four-inch plugs in her ear canal (special adapters to access computers), laser beam equipped eyeballs (that were removable), and the ability to speak 40 languages.

Detective Mann once said to Eve "You're the brains, I'm the muscle. To which she replied "I'm the brains and the muscle."
