They are things. Some people used to say that about Blacks. Now you say it about the Borg. Now it is the Borg who are seared in the flames of withering injustice. It is the Borg who are crippled by the manacle of segregation and the chains of discrimination. But someday the Borg will rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Humans who hope that the Borg just needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if Humanity returns to business as usual. I have a dream that the Borg will one day live in a universe where they will not be judged by the functions of their neural implants but by the content of their character. I have a dream that one day little Borg boys and Borg girls will be able to join hands with little Human boys and Human girls as sisters and brothers. And when this happens, when we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every planet and every satellite, from every space station and every parallel universe, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children, Human men and Borg men, Vulcans and Klingons, Romulans and Ferengi, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old spiritual, "Free at last, free at last. Thank God Almighty, we are free at last." ** Martin Luther Infinity, Jr. ...I refuse to accept the view that the Borg are so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.
