    hey guys, i'm looking for something similar to what we see in the Star Trek Voyager episode 'Dark Frontier' where Voyager beams aboard a photon torpedo and the Borg defense voice says "Security breach, Starfleet photon torpedo, disarm weapon." i really love how the Borg security system comes online and tries to defend itself. i just wanted to know if anyone could list movies where we see an automated security system like this where the defense system tries to defend itself from intruders. even TV episodes from TV shows would be really great!

    thanks, i'd really appreciate any help!

    Here is a complete list of all of the computers - some good / most bad - in literature, radio, TV, film, and even gaming.

    But I'd dare say that Hal 9000 is the most infamous.

    Fictional Computers

    The Resident Evil movies (can't remember which ones exactly; definitely the first one) do a nice version of this with the White Queen & the Red Queen AI computers.

    Check out the climax of the original 1971 version of The Andromeda Strain.

    ok that sounds great, i'll try to check it out soon.

    another example is the scene in judge dredd where the warden goes to talk to Rico and the security system says "remain still, identify yourself." are there any other movies out there?

    thanks!

    Ed209 in the original Robocop.

    But that also happened about every other week with the robot in the 1960s Lost in Space series...

    You should also watch Colossus:The Forbin Project (it's on line)

    Nope. Colossus was a major motion picture at the time. (Based on a novel by D. F. Jones.)

    There was an intelligent computer defense system in a MacGyver episode.

    Also Superman III. ;)

    And sort of in a DS9 episode where Sisko and O'Brien accidentally start an automated security system installed by the Cardassians.

    They did it on The Bionic Woman too, although I don't recall the ep. (The original series, of course.)

    Alright, I just finished watching the first Resident Evil movie and it didn't really have what I was looking for?

    Do the Forerunner AIs in Halo count? They make the attempt to keep the Flood contained. That's when the Sentinel Walls go up.
