My personal attempt at recreating a portion of the 'assimilation speech' given by the Borg aliens from the Star Trek franchise.

(NOTE: Star Trek and all its holdings belong to Paramount/CBS and its affiliates; do not use this recording for commercial purposes!)

The Borg are a race of cybernetic organisms that seek to attain perfection through forcibly implanting and absorbing other life-forms and their technology into a collective consciousness. They are one of the Star Trek franchise's most enduring and feared villains.

This sample was produced with Logic Pro and the standard Apple text-to-speech program, as well as third-party audio plugins.

SCRIPT: "We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Your culture will adapt to service us. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile."

(FOOTNOTE: Yes, I know 'futile' isn't pronounced that way in the show most of the time, but this pronunciation has been used on Star Trek: The Next Generation as well as Voyager on occasion! Blame Apple for deciding how their voice pronounces things, haha!)
