The Vault

“We’ve identified one of the bodies.”

Elizabeth Shelby looked skeptical.  “Which one?”

Artifacts collected across the galaxy over the past two centuries crowded every alcove.  At the far end stood three cryogenic tubes.  Frozen within were the bodies of three things, once intelligent beings now turned into something else, inhuman and cybernetic — Borg.

“The human one.”  Genetic testing had established that over a century before.

“You’ve located his family?”

“We’ve located him.  An exact genetic match.”


“Cadet Sean Hawk, Starfleet Academy.”

Shelby could only wonder how an Academy cadet became a Borg over two hundred years in the past.
