As in The Next Generation episode "The Measure Of A Man", the rights of non-organic lifeforms are at issue in this episode.

In the beginning, there is darkness, the emptiness of a matrix waiting for the light. Then, a single photon flares into existence, then another. Soon, thousands more. Optronic pathways connect, subroutines emerge from the chaos, and a holographic consciousness is born.
