Medical Report and Psychological Profile – Liberated Borg Rehabilitation Center
Attending Doctor: Edith Pert, MD; Starfleet Medical LBRC – London

Patient ID: 0771-79657-10-75
Name: One of Twelve
Species: Borg, Human
Height: 180 cm
Status: Awake
Initial condition: Good.

09:18 UTC—For staff at LBRC, today will be busy. There is plenty of work to provide adjacent connected rooms for One and Two of Twelve. For instance, Starfleet Intelligence needs to install a dampening field to make certain they are not communicating thought to thought, so they learn to communicate via voice. There has been no communicade from Starfleet Intelligence regarding yesterday’s hand gesture communication, but we will keep watch for that too. One of Twelve is ready to go. Her assimilated table obtained some anti-grav additions overnight, so she expects to take it with her. I will ask Mr. Sodu to convince her otherwise. Mrs. Wegere will observe discretely most of the day, but plans to welcome them to the new room. At this stage in the rehabilitation process, conversation points of note will not be logged.

09:53 UTC—Mr. Sodu explained that One of Twelve needs to leave her assimilated table behind. Assimilating the items around us is not the way Starfleet works, and I expect that is a hard lesson for her. She agreed to leave everything behind. It will be made available for Starfleet Intelligence analysis once we determine that One and Two of Twelve will not need to be placed back into separate rooms.

12:34 UTC—Mrs. Wegere and Mrs. Luwaav greeted the two Liberated Borg with lunch today, nothing fancy, just sandwiches and tulaberry juice. Because they rely on regeneration rather than eating, both did little more than nibble at the food. They enjoyed the flavor of the tulaberry juice.

12:41 UTC—One and Two of Twelve suffered a mild anaphylactic reaction to something in their lunch. By the time epinephrine hyposprays were obtained, they had adapted. Two of Twelve said it was the tulaberry juice, but it will no longer affect them. I require additional analysis of their genomes to determine what other foods they might be allergic to. They request more tulaberry juice.

Starfleet Intelligence considers these drones to be important strategic assets. Unless Mrs. Wegere or Mrs. Luwaav objects, we believe they are ready to begin initial testing for placement at Starfleet Academy. In each of their personnel files you will find they are being sponsored with Letters of Recommendation from the highest authority in the Federation. A waiver will be added to both their files allowing them to test out of any class they can. My thought is if we demonstrate more trust in them, they will grow to trust us more, to the point they are willing to tell us about Project [REDACTED]. As for the hand gestures, analysts have placed the entire sequence through the Universal Translators. There is no known sign language similar to what they used, nor does it come close to matching any logical alphanumeric sequences in any language. Perhaps Mr. Sodu could ask them about it.

Sir, I have no doubt in One of Twelve’s capacity for attending Starfleet Academy or testing out of classes. What I do doubt is her ability to interact adequately with other students. If the Project [REDACTED] briefing is accurate, as suggested by Mr. Sodu’s determination of their genetically engineered origin, she has never before interacted with people who are not drones. While at LBRC, she is in a controlled environment with limited access to new faces. It gives her time to adjust to encountering strangers and being unable to hear their thoughts. With your permission, we could take her on guided tours of various landmarks to get her into public places. She will need to grow accustomed to encountering so many strangers before I would trust her to do well among students. Is your security team prepared to deal with One of Twelve if she turns out to be unpredictable? Why is the President of the Federation sponsoring two Liberated Borg he has never met?

Admiral Allaron, I am sure you heard the answer in the security recording already, but One of Twelve explained that the hand signals were encrypted with a fractal algorithm. She also said she was explaining the [REDACTED] she discovered in the sensor data. I doubt there was anything truly malicious in that conversation.

15:14 UTC—One and Two of Twelve attempted to explain to Mr. Sodu how they adapted to the tulaberry juice allergy. PADDs were provided, with the stipulation that they do not assimilate the devices. I believe they also provided Mr. Sodu with additional information on the genetic sequence that left them vulnerable in this case.

Good work, Mr. Sodu. Keep us apprised of what else you can learn from them. Your results are faster than what we get from some of our top interrogators. I request that you continue working on this case beyond merely the genetic aspects. If there is anything Starfleet Intelligence can do to assist you, do not hesitate to ask. Mrs. Wegere, do not doubt our security team. They are authorized to shoot One of Twelve without hesitation if they believe she will become a threat. Feel free to plan some excursions outside of the London LBRC facility. She is a military strategist, so take her places of strategic importance throughout history. Consider the Great Wall of China, Normandy, Gettysburg, or any of the numerous star fort or European castle preservation sites. I doubt the nearest botanical garden would keep her interested for long. You can take her anywhere on Earth by transporter. Anywhere that requires a shuttle or starship is currently off limits.

17:02 UTC—Both Liberated Borg are adjusting their new regeneration alcoves to their personal preferences, and will regenerate tonight. Mrs. Wegere will plan an excursion to take them on tomorrow.

Admiral Allaron, my goal when I am done here is to retire on Risa, which I am certain your agency already knows. I have no desire to continue working for Starfleet.

18:14 UTC—Reply to Note, Tuyo Allaron, Adm, Starfleet Intelligence
Mr. Sodu, Starfleet Intelligence approves your retirement on Risa. Report to my office within the hour for more details.

22:52 UTC—Note, Kutrizian Sodu
The anaphylactic reaction noted earlier today was traced back to 1q23, which appears to be a completely synthetic reconstruction of the locus. The design for these Borg expected them to obtain all of their energy via regeneration, not by eating foods. As a result, the FcεRI will interpret some food enzymes as being attacks of harmful parasitic origin, leading to a rapid immunological response and an overall allergic reaction. I plan to conduct additional study to determine if there might be any relation to PAH in 12q22-q24.2, which I do not believe will cause them problems based on my current understanding of its sequencing. Fortunately, they maintain some manner of adapting their nanoprobes to neutralize and prevent future occurrences when they encounter problems like these.
