USB is a direct link for the cyborgs to recharge their internal batteries more than for information exchange. The Wi-Fi accomplishes that.

Agree! And what's with the spikey dog collars? Don't know about the interior of Borg ships but how can a flying cube be an efficient means of space travel? I'm not an engineer but it seems to be about as aerodynamic as a flying toilet (not that one would get a lot of wind resistance in a vacuum)!

This is for an Amazon society and a man did the original designs.
The spike collars and skull belts is part of a "scarecrow" image to nonhuman species that are hostile to humans and the barbaric past humans have.
Since an alien race of living liquid metal aliens kidnap the human Amazons to hunt for sport, the scarecrow image of the cyborgs made in the supersized image of their makers makes the aliens associate the cyborgs with their makers--the human Amazons.

Already explained read more of my posts.

I, Creator has its own original mythology, based on my story bible and two unpublished manuscripts, and Star Trek has its own.
Here are the Amazons kidnapped by the aliens.
And, here are the cyborgs bumping heads with the aliens as they are on a rescue mission to rescue their human Amazon sister soldier and to destroy the enemy.

My bad. I was responding to a response and to some rather garish pictures that had little to do with interior ship design, sorry about that. As to your original question I guess that would depend on the cyborgs and human passengers, how the ship travels (how do passengers deal with FTL & multiple G's), do the cyborgs require nutients or food as they are partially human. In short, what sort of environmental systems need to be set up?

However my interest in all this is va p o r i z i n g....

Why should they smile after the cyborgs' spaceship, Andromeda, just vaporized the alien mother ship and their entire planet? They realize they wiped out an entire planet of life forms. They would look grim like in the picture there. This is a screen grab from the end of the pilot.

It is not needed.
The second question was also answered.
Pop out seat belts by the ship for humans as needed for takeoff and landing if the ship is in an atmosphere and magnetic lock for the cyborgs for the same reasons. Between that, they can grab onto support around them in the ship, if it were to go through an asteroids field or the like.

Also, each species of high intelligence will have their own cyborgs made in their own image to represent themselves to others around the universe in the series as they reach their own "Singularity" in their own civilizations.

An engineer is asking about recharging cyborgs via a USB port. The USB port will not be able to recharge the cyborg.
What other recharging options would you recommend?
Their main source of internal power comes from internal fusion reactors.
Should a new power source be used instead of batteries for a future technology to assist the electronics besides the fusion reactor?
