Think Tank robot

The "Think Tank", so named by Captain Kathryn Janeway, was a cooperative of technologically-advanced alien intellectuals whose alleged purpose was to solve the problems of others for a price. Together they operated their group out of an advanced vessel.

By their own count, the Think Tank were opportunistic explorers who had solved problems for hundreds of clients, many of whom were at war. According to their representative, Kurros, the group solved medical, tactical, and various other types of problems with only minimal compensation. They were able to eliminate earthquakes on an unknown planet, asking for only a quantity of dilithium in return. The Think Tank also claimed to have cured the Vidiian Phage.

However, Kurros admitted that selfishness was necessary for their crew to attain perfection, and they were not above using manipulation and force to get what they wanted. Sometimes they even created the problem that needed to be solved for a price in the first place. Hence, the group was quite notorious in the Delta Quadrant, having made many enemies, and it appeared that their knowledge had not made them any more enlightened. Still, they had ethical boundaries, refusing to construct a weapon of mass destruction or commit genocide.

This artificial intelligence was regarded by Kurros as one with "the mind of a mathematician and the soul of an artist," adding that "I'm afraid he'd much rather be modelling a fractal sculpture than analyzing the data of our latest astronomical scan."

Upon meeting Seven of Nine, this artificial intelligence wished to speak to her about her bionetic technology. Seven allowed it, and the two interfaced via direct telepathic communication, at which point he requested information about integrating organic components into its own technology, and Seven complied by giving him "some pointers."

Later, when Seven of Nine rejected their request for her to join the "Think Tank", this artificial intelligence provided them with information, stating that "our calculations indicate a 96% chance the Borg will still be ours."
