Civilization Beyond Earth: “We turn our gaze upward to the stars. To a new beginning for mankind.”
When I say people want to see more diversity in stories, no, I really don’t mean different stories about straight white dudes. I really, really don’t mean that at all. This isn’t about types of stories being told. This is specifically about people. I’m not letting you make this about something else. You are not hijacking this message to make sure we’re still talking about straight white dudes.

This made me actually sputter with frustration. Saliva exited my mouth. Why do you think your opinion SHOULD matter on this subject? Why should your opinion be given the same weight over people who are actually living these experiences? Especially when my original point was about how minorities rarely get to tell their own stories. I’ve been really patient with him but he’s taken up way too much of my time and he’s still missing the point like he’s trying to actively avoid it.

V’Ger is an AI manifestation. Which would put it into the 4th category. Artificial Intelligence. It’s not a Robot, as one of the requirements for a Robot is that it has to able to do manual activity (here is the origin of the word Robot). V’Ger is closer to GLADoS than R2D2.
Now, if say, the Borg came along an added articulators to V’Ger, then it becomes a Robot. Also, not all robots are self-aware or even have rudimentary intelligence. A Gundam is a Robot as much as Optimus Prime.
