Android vs Cyborg vs T800 HK Terminator

Paramount Pictures or CBS Paramount Television

 What makes a robot tick? or an android or a cyborg tick?. Commander Data of the USS Enterprise NCC 1701-D for instance is immortal, so he has nothing to fear you might think. Neither does Seven of Nine. Strength of 10 men, doesn't break easily, has an exhaustive computer memory and until 2371 was completely emotionless, when Dr Noonien Soong's (Data's human father) emotion chip was finally installed. 

Beforehand Data was completely fail safe and ruthless with his opponents. This thing had the equivalent fighting capabilities for taking on the T800 Hk Terminator. Seven of Nine would simply have resorted to the mesmerizing power of her mind enhanced by the Collective Borg. resistance is futile. You will be assimilated. 


The Enterprise Data android is not without flaws. The installation of Dr Soong's emotion chip initially made Data a weak, emotional android unable to master a flood of human emotionalism. Data's off switch, known only to his Enterprise friends was his Achilles heel. It effectively put the chief of Operations in sleep mode or deactivation which Lore took full advantage.  


In Star Trek's TNG "The Measure of a Man" Data's rights to choose are at stake.. A hearing is assembled on the starbase. Data's future and all future androids in the galaxy rest solely on the successful outcome of Captain Picard's Défense of Data. Fortunately Mr Data is not deemed the property of Starfleet Command but a sentient lifeform with rights to choose on equal footing of us human and in case you haven't been paying attention - That means us pitiful earthers.


Who do you think would win in hand to hand combat?
