There is reference to this age being in millions of years but the robot doesn't know. It is in english . I think the robot is internally powered by a black hole or something . It goes mostly unnoticed by the humans until they trap him and are scared of him . The trapper is maybe a lady chief and she says that his age is over 700 million years.

  • Hi, welcome to SF&F! This has very few details; you don't even say if it's a short story or a cartoon. Please edit this to add everything else you can think of; when you saw/read this, where, what language, etc.

  • @StackLover do you know where you read it, if it was in it's own book or a larger collection? What year was it released or that you read it

You're thinking of "Alone" a by Robert Reed. It is a short story in the Greatship series. There is a similar answer here: Sci-fi book about a shape shifting machine wandering the surface of a planet sized space ship
