actually wait, I’m going back to the agenda I had last year when I was writing a ton about the overlap between androids, holograms, augments, and x-borgs and how any characters who are cyborg/synthetic have narratives about how they need to “become” more human or palatable to other humans and are even punished/threatened with punishment for not conforming 
and the “humanity” they’re expected and forced to try to imitate is endorsed by the writing of the show - it’s not presented as a violent system of assimilation (I wonder if this was what Picard was... trying... and failing... to try to convey? I need to rewatch it, because it’s been long enough now that I can’t quite remember the details of everything that annoyed me about its writing of the xBs and androids, but I remember I was annoyed) - it’s presented as correct and good and at the same time these characters are informed (to a greater or lesser extent) that actually they will never be human enough, no matter how much they pass
and the reality for any marginalised person - but in this case especially disabled people, for whom I think these characters present the strongest metaphor (some disabled people literally call themselves cyborgs, which makes a lot of sense, considering the ever-growing use of technology - and especially “smart” tech that sends data and updates - for disabled peoples needs, and I say that somewhat ironically, because it’s also a capitalist hellscape, anyway, tangent) - is that this assimilation is one of the most common forms of violent erasure, with more violence promised if the assimilation isn’t achieved, and the exact same narrative: no matter how much you pass, you will never be human enough
this is my eternal hyper-hyperfocus. the tunnel of my star trek specific vision.
