””’Still Not Quite Human””’ is a [[1992 in film|1992]] [[made-for-TV film]] written and directed by [[Eric Luke]] and starring [[Jay Underwood]] and [[Alan Thicke]]. It is the third and final [[film]] in a series based on the ”[[Not Quite Human]]” novels by [[Seth McEvoy]]. The story features the human-looking [[android]], Chip, embarking on a mission to rescue his father, who has been [[kidnapping|kidnapped]] by a ruthless tycoon in order to acquire his knowledge of android technology.

After giving a failed presentation at a [[robotics]] convention, Dr. Jonas Carson ([[Alan Thicke]]) is kidnapped and replaced by a look-alike [[android]]. His android son, Chip ([[Jay Underwood]]), notices the swap and manages to reprogram the impostor. Since he is like an additional Jonas, Chip names him Bonus (Alan Thicke). Chip enlists the aid of a watch seller/thief, Kyle (Adam Philipson), whom he has just befriended, to help him rescue his father. Bonus is able to lead them to the mansion where Dr. Carson is being held, but tight security prevents them from sneaking in successfully. When they get Officer Kate Morgan (Rosa Nevin) to assist them, she devises a plan to assume the personas of wealthy people in order to gain willful entry to Dr. Frederick Berrigon’s ([[Christopher Neame]]) estate, seeking guidance from her rich Aunt Mildred ([[Betsy Palmer]]) to prepare them.

Their ploy gets them inside, but they are soon found snooping, so Kyle and Bonus keep the guards occupied while Chip finds his father. Just before he breaks into the room where his father is being held, Chip learns that Berrigon was trying to extract Dr. Carson’s knowledge to aid in building a war machine android. A moment later, Chip is confronted by a working prototype and is forced to fight it, with Berrigon watching from a distance. Chip has to avoid its laserfire, initially, but he manages to smash the laser with a projectile. The battle becomes a contest of speed and raw strength, with Chip being knocked to the ground and nearly struck in the chest with the end of a metal rod. Chip scrambles up, sets a compressed hydrogen canister on a cart and smashes the valve off, causing it to speed toward the other android and smash it against a group of canisters, which explode. Berrigon, having witnessed Chip’s victory, realizes that he must be Dr. Carson’s android, and when Kate returns with other policemen, Berrigon tells them of this discovery; unconvinced, they haul him away.
