Re: Star Trek Fans and Doctor Who
As a concept, the Cybermen are a little more scary than the Borg. They're both just an alien race that cruises around the universe and turns any humanoid they meet into one of their own through cybernetic parts, but the Borg still have human faces and we've seen several Borg become normal humans again.
Once you go Cyberman, say bye-byeberman. Any Cyberman who manages to fight its programming and reassert its old human identity either kills itself or just dies outright.
Similar catchphrases, though. "Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated." "Resistance is useless. You will be like us."
The Doctor: "SHOUT?! I DON'T SHOUT!! People who have to resort to shouting to get what they want are merely demonstrating the inherent paucity of their argument! It's something THAT I NEVER NEVER--"
Peri: "ALRIGHT, DOCTOR!!"
The Doctor: "Point made, I think."
