Since her creation, the android Rommie is shown to have evolved differently from the ship's AI, and both of them (android and hologram) are sometimes found together chatting, even arguing against each other's opinions. Their biggest difference is that the android, as a creation of Harper, is intended to be human-like and sentimental. At the end of Season 4, Rommie blew up. All that was left was her head that was partially damaged and her AI core.
