From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

A cyborg is a cybernetic organism, which is a being that is composed of both natural and artificial systems, ranging from prosthetics to implants to entirely mechanical casings operated by or sustaining the organic parts of that particular entity.

Examples of cyborgs are sometimes victims of traumatic injury in which their biological bodies are damaged beyond their ability to heal.(DW: The Pirate Planet, Voyage of the Damned)

Both the Mondasian Cybermen and Cybus Cybermen were examples of cyborgs which, due to widespread use of standard parts, could be considered a race.

On the planet Sto, cyborgs were discriminated against, a prime example being the case of Max Capricorn. (DW: Voyage of the Damned)

Cyborg
Fallout 3
requirements: Level 14, Science 60, Medicine 60

Cyborg is a Fallout 3 Perk.

You’ve made permanent enhancements to your body! The Cyborg perk instantly adds +10% to your Damage, Poison, and Radiation Resistances, and 10 points to the Energy Weapons skill.

Notes

  • Of the perks that offer damage resistance, Cyborg gives the most to the character. Compare the 10% resistance for damage, radiation, and poison to Toughness which adds only damage resistance, Rad Resistance which adds only radiation resistance, or Nerd Rage! and Lead Belly which are conditional.
  • The +10 Energy Weapons is also great for characters using this type of weapons considering that the Energy Weapons Bobblehead can only be found later during the main quest.
  • You do not get any special appearance upon accepting this perk.
  • Pip-Boy 3000 perk image is a homage to the Terminator movies.
  • The +10 Energy Weapons effect may also be a nod to the Terminator franchise. In the original film, there is a humorous moment when the titular cyborg character asks for a "Phased plasma rifle in the 40-watt range" at a circa 1984 gun shop.

History

Alongside, his brother A-14, they were sent to attack Captain America by MODOK. They failed, and his brother was eliminated while he was experimented on.

With his new cybernetic situation, he was sent to rob a bank and ambush Captain America again, this time with more success. That is, until Cap tricked him into smashing open a water pipe, short circuiting his cybernetic enhancements and allowing Cap to overpower and subdue him.

Cybernetic limbs.
"He is a Borg who died last night. You know the term, I'm sure. Half human...half mechanical droid. Yet the man half of him had a soul, or so my faith believes."
Pera

A cyborg was a cybernetic organism, that is, a living organic sentient organism with mechanical prosthetics. Often covered in synthflesh/synthskin, these prosthetics served one or more of three purposes:

  1. Life support, often due to injuries sustained. Examples of this were Darth Vader, General Grievous, and Lumiya.
  2. Prosthetic replacements for parts that were lost, though they may not be required for life itself. An example of this was the prosthetic hand used by Luke Skywalker, as well the mechanical arm used by Anakin Skywalker.
  3. To enhance one's abilities, as in the case of Lobot. General Grievous's abilities were also significantly enhanced by his prosthetics, though his main reason for becoming a cyborg was that he had sustained massive injuries and would have died otherwise. However, his four arms, each with its own lightsaber, did improve his swordsmanship beyond his native abilities.

Cyborg also referred to creatures that were half-organic and half-droid. They were generally regarded as "soulless abominations". Cyberneticists were responsible for developing and creating cybernetic components.

Prejudice

Cyborgs with brain implants such as the BioTech Borg Construct Aj^6 have been known to suffer from psychosis as a result of their enhancement, and consequently face fear and prejudice from many beings.

Such cyborgs were not considered citizens under Imperial law, which required surgery to be sponsored by a corporation or government. The cyborg was then indentured to their sponsor. However, this did not seem to affect the cyborg Darth Vader's standing in the Empire. Even the New Republic required them to undergo regular neural scans.

Cyborgs with large-scale enhancements (over half of their body) were faced with outright fear and derision, often forcing them into hiding. On some back-water worlds anti-cyborg sentiment was so strong that attempts at burying deceased "borgs" were often met with outbreaks of violence.

Many beings, especially spacers, had a prejudice against droids which they extended to cyborgs; they referred to cyborgs as "borgs."
