“Resistance is futile”. If you’re a Star Trek fan, hearing those words probably immediately triggers one thought: the Borg. The Borg is the ultimate nightmare: humanity, enslaved by a computer. Luckily, it is only fiction. Or is it?
In Star Trek, they come in a cube. A huge space ship it is, filled with millions of people. Well — they’re not really people. They are the Borg. The people in the cube have no free will, no mind of their own. They are One. They’re plugged into the mainframe computer called ‘the Borg’. They’re cyber slaves. Poor little creatures.
But that’s science fiction, right?
