Name: One of Twelve

14:31 UTC—I believe One of Twelve is fit to return to duty. She is still rough around the edges, and probably always will be, but her weeks in sensitivity training seem to have had a positive effect on her. At the very least, she should be more considerate of the social ramifications of her actions, whether good or bad, and is beginning to understand, not just know intellectually, that people are not drones. Having helped her throughout this training, I believe her crewmembers will notice a marked difference. I recommend this training for all Liberated Borg personnel.

I thought we solved the empathy problem while she was still at Starfleet Academy.

Mr. Sodu, I hope retirement on Risa is doing well for you. As far as I can tell, this problem is not quite related to her previous inability to empathize with others. Rather, we are dealing with a conflict between how she views subordinates and how Starfleet views subordinates. While she had enough empathy to understand her subordinates might not want to perform a suicide mission, she made no consideration of those opinions in her strategies. To her, it was nothing more than moving pawns in a chess game. She would sacrifice as many as needed to ensure her own victory. Life, however, is more complex than a simple strategic calculation, and that is what we hope this training taught her.

Very good. I hope it works out.
