Galaxy class cybernetics

The cybernetics lab aboard a Galaxy-class starship

Cybernetics is the study of hugely complex artificial intelligence systems, usually running on a positronic matrix and often housed inside robotic machine technology. A practical implementation of this is an android. The scientists who study in this field are known as cyberneticists.

Mechanical replacements for body parts were called cybernetic implants. (TNG: "The Measure Of A Man") The cybernetic implants used by the Borg to augment their bodies were often referred to as Borg implants. (TNG: "The Best of Both Worlds, Part II") Captain Jean-Luc Picard has noted that like all cybernetic lifeforms the Borg could not survive without their biological components. (Star Trek: First Contact)

The Bynars were also a partially cynernetic species, having their parietal lobe removed after birth and replaced with a synaptic processor. (TNG: "11001001"; ENT: "Regeneration")

Joseph Gatt stated his character in Star Trek Into Darkness, science officer 0718, was meant to be a Human, with cybernetic implants. [1]
