What is Remote Agent and what is it doing on DS1?

What does a remote agent do in space ships? A remote agent is a computer program that controls a space ship from a distance. It is an artificially intelligent program that, when told to do things, decides how to do them and does them. When things go wrong or the spacecraft comes upon unexpected opportunities, it takes advantage of them. Remote Agent solves problems that used to be handled by mission control automatically using its resources on board.
