Directive A-113 was a secret directive originally commissioned by Shelby Forthright in the year 2110 AD. It was programmed into the Autopilot aboard the Axiom. The directive stated that Operation Cleanup had failed, and that Earth could never be habitable again. As a result, Operation Recolonize had to be cancelled, and Auto was ordered not to allow the Axiom to return to Earth under any circumstances.

Auto attempted to implement Directive A-113 with the help of GO-4 when EVE brought back an example of plant life, but was ultimately defeated when the Captain switched him to manual control.
