He is effectively the electronic brain/personality of a research ship - he identifies himself as a Trimaxion Drone Ship, much like the probes NASA launches to photograph distant stars etc. Max's purpose is to collect data from other planets and return the data and samples to his planet of origin: Phaelon.
Max is equipped with a faster than light drive of an undisclosed nature and a time travel function, allowing him to return samples exactly as found without a second missing-in-between abduction and return. This means he does not disturb the environment he came to observe.
Powers and Abilities
Max has high intelligence, knows thousands of languages, and can control the ship at any speed.
- Max was voiced by Paul Reubens (credited as Paul Mall), famous for his child-like persona, "Pee-Wee Herman".
- Max's original tone is similar to HAL 9000 from Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey".
