Sorry for the sudden surge of cyborg-related threads, but i’ve been watching Season 2 of Doctor Who (i have my ways, but won’t get into them), and the Cybermen and Dalek based episodes have got me thinking…
if i was forced to be “upgraded”, what cybernetic lifeform would i upgrade to?
the Borg? individuality crushed, treated as a cog in the Galactic machine, the contents of my mind sifted through to see what would best serve the Collective, body studded with painful looking implants, however the catchphrase is cool “We are Borg, you will be assimilated, resistance is futile”
the Cybermen? as with the Borg, individuality crushed, mind linked into a collective conciousness, at least the armoured body shell looks cooler than the Borg, but the catchphrases are dumber “You Will Be Upgraded” (can the Borg sue for copyright infringement here ) “Delete!!”
the Daleks? locked inside a cold metal cage, unable to touch, all emotions removed except rage, unless equipped with antigrav units, stairs would be a problem “El-E-VATE!”, on the upside, i’d get a cool death ray, personal shielding, a cool blue eyestalk, and a much cooler catchphrase “EX-TER-MI-NATE!!!”
if i was forced, i’d probably chose to be Dalek’ed…
what about you? Cyberman, Borg, or Dalek?
