Star Trek: The Next Generation, "I, Borg"
I, Borg." Star Trek: The Next Generation. Week of 11 May 1992. Robert Lederman, dir. Rene Echevarria, script. Jonathan Del Arco, guest star.
Individualization of an adolescent male Borg, who learns to say "I" and returns to the hive collective as, potentially, a kind of virus of individualism. Important episode for the politics of STNG and of SF more generally; cf. and contrast Ayn Rand's Anthem (1946), I. Asimov's I, Robot (cited under Fiction), and such Star Trek episodes as "The Return of the Archons" (cited this Category).
