Mr. Beepy

Commander Ross created Mr. Beepy last week.
Mr. Beepy is a simple crawler-robot that beeps.
“I added beeping so I could find it,” said Ross. “How was I to know it would crawl into the ductwork where we can’t reach it.”
So, Ross created Mr. Crushy.
Mr. Crushy was programmed to find and crush Mr. Beepy.
Except that Mr. Crushy also crushed power conduits, and he shorted out most of the life support systems.
We had to use the lifepod to abandon the station. We rendezvous with the shuttle in a week.
Wait… hold on… what’s that beeping?
Uh oh.
