Re: VOY S6: Life Line

What I really care for in all Star Trek series is the philosophical equations they propose to explore. And this episode is one of the most spectacular ones. In Life Line, the relationship between a human and his electronic creation that has evolved in becoming more human, way beyond his expectations, mesmerizes me . Aren't we on the verge of a tremendous age of AI ? Isn't it relevant to explore such a situation through a good story, with a great actor, able to nuance his performance to the point of having us believe both of them ? Those two characters finally represent two POV on humanity. A) one who enjoys becoming what he views as more human, having become able to empathize and develop skills to be able to help ; b) one who does not even care of being a better human, centred on his ego, giving predominance to feelings of despair, rage, remorse, shame, guilt, without any second thought. Both hold not only our attention but our sympathy to their singular humanity. I wish a better philosopher than me could elaborate on all that research, specially in the last seasons of Voyager.
