A force of battle androids is observed in action by the old man who first created successful androids. He sees a model 17, which was the first viable one, made from his own body cells. Peace is declared, so the androids are killed to avoid political complications. The old man is dying, and regrets the destructive power he has unleashed. He dies and is resurrected on the battlefield in the body of Exterminator 17. The humans see an android come back to life and realize this might cause a rebellion, so they hire Neo-Puritans to kill 17. Meanwhile 17 has taken up the cause of freeing all the androids. The Neo-Puritans learn about 17's supernatural resurrection and let him go, and he destroys the human military establishment. The androids are released, and fly off to the stars on rockets.
