His job is to make sure that ship runs runs smoothly, though if he had his way he'd drive this 50,000 ton group speed therapy session, warp speed, into the nearest star. He often clashes with Chode.
Gus is a petty, self-hating robot who is possibly gay. While most robots are programmed to be helpful, courteous, and upbeat, Gus is uncooperative, condescending and cynical (though he was programmed that way).
- His implied gayness is a running gag in the series.
- He is a parody of C-3PO.
- He was voiced by Chris Moeller in the pilot.
