"The Exterminator." Orkin commercial on TV, August 1993 f.

Fleas will be destroyed by an Orkin Exterminator who is a combination of RoboCop, a more generalized cyborg, the Borg of Star Trek: The Next Generation, a transformer toy—and, of course, Arnold Schwarzenegger's Terminator (crossed with the villainous T-1000 of TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY ). Note for positive presentation of a cyborgized man. Cf. and contrast the RoboCop films, THE TERMINATOR films, the Borg episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the Cybermen of Dr. Who, plus Ripley in mechanized exoskeleton, fighting Alien queen at end of ALIENS.
