In a world where Borg are the Mount Everett of Thinking Machines. And thus prohibitively expensive to use for those troublesome insurgencies plaguing your third-world regime.
The relatively cheap, disposable SAR [study analyze reprogram] is the Predator meets Terminator solution for your battlefield needs.
An example of throwaway military-purposed androids, based upon The Borg and thus epitomizing the no-holds-barred style of combat. They are the automated replacement of choice for biological soldiers when plausible deniability is first and foremost, and your defense budget is tight.
No politicians wringing their hands over the adverse opinion of your country’s ruler when a military op they’ve Okayed goes south or too deadly or too expensive.
So. If mass destruction at a low cost is your goal, and genocide is your desired result. In other words, when it’s take no prisoners, but I’m on the cheap and I can’t spend a lot. These killing machines, pinnacle users of adaptive learning, will destroy every living person and thing onsite, and you won’t break the bank.
SAR. It’s a win-win for everybody … except for your enemy. So, get yours, before the other guys do.
