I'm writing this sci-fi series called First Contact Finders. Well, the first novel was easy, because I could adapt everything just to fit the story, including this android John, who looks exactly like a human, except for he had to be totally dumb, so he's acting will be more interesting, like here in this dialogue: "Please specify your conclusion 'there are no traces of technology'." The android asks. "Have your detectors found anything?" "No." Sammy's getting impatient. "Think a little, you moron! Where would such a telepathic signal come from?" The tension in his head changes again and increases its intensity. Sammy's adrenalin is growing. He tries not to panic. He subconsciously feels which way the inner emotions are dragging him and he tries to block them by thoughts of something similar, but harmless. "My database lacks the required context." John replies. "Exactly! They won´t have a name for it, if they don´t know it and haven´t seen it at least several times. Which means it's not any kind of technology, because they would shit themselves from our weapons a long ago... there must be something else going on.” I explained the android can be dumb in 23th century, because they got him for the mission just with basic firmware. It was a scum made by one jealous colleague. But in the next story, he has to be updated with some kind of personality. Still looking like artifical inteligence as many times as possible. Any suggestions? Almost all robots in stories represents some autistic behaviour, so Kryten from Red Dwarf series is enjoying cleaning and doing dishes, a maid from Outer Limits series is happily screwed by her owner, but then get jealous and want to kill him. I don't want to do that, because it looks really lame if you have to read that stuff. So "robotic" behaviour can be also about remembering all things, misjudging complicated context, but how about the way of responding, how about the character. Elvis Presley? Bruce Willis? John Rambo? Jim Carrey? How should fake person look like?
