Resistance is futile!
Technically the Borg are cybernetic, and not full fledged robots.

They were developed from robots somewhere in their family tree.  They're full fullflegder that robots.

Mine is halfway up the same what.
There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

It was a play about human like robots written way back in the 1920's or so IIRC, Anton Chekov(sp?).

I used to read a comic way back when about a guy that fought renegade robots.



Sort of close, it was written (IIRC) by a Czech, not Chekov.  I think his name was something like Karel Capek, the "C" having some sort of Czech inflection mark on it that I think means it was a 'Ch' sound, like we pronounce 'Which,' but I don't know much about Slavic lingo variations on the Roman alphabet and I could be misremembering the mark anyway. 

Used to have a paperback copy of it around, a 60s-era paperback with both a novelette and the play in it that my Dad had picked up somewhere, though the book had some title with 'Robots' in it rather than R. U. R.

This thread had potential.

It needed to finish ... but I probably wouldn't **** one...
