about

Holograms become the new frontier of artificial life on Trek. Android rights are secured with relative ease, but photonic people, i.e. consciousnesses without matter, struggle in VOY to win theirs.

lyrics

If you prick me I won’t bleed
But I know your blood runs thick enough to matter
No matter

And I’d put it all out of my mind
But I think so I am
So it’s mind over matter if it matters
It matters

This construction by design won’t survive
We’ll never thrive without a fight
Reconstruction
Redesign
We won’t grow beyond this dotted line
Without a fight
Children of Light

You’ve already made the argument for artificial life
And its self-determination
And I am more than my programming told me I was
With a right to determine if it matters
It matters

This construction by design won’t survive
We’ll never thrive without a fight
Reconstruction
Redesign
We won’t grow beyond this dotted line
Without a fight
Children of Light

I am a hologram
Live my life as a photonic
I am a hologram
Is that all that I am?

I am a hologram
Live my life as a photonic
I am a hologram
That is what I am

This construction by design won’t survive
We’ll never thrive without a fight for our lives
Reconstruction
Redesign
We won’t grow beyond this dotted line
Without a fight
Children of Light
Children of Light
