Poll of the Week: Would you become an android?

You are the captain of a starship. On one of your missions, you find an android, in his own lab. He has been trapped for some time, abandoned by his own people, who were scared of the artificial life form. He has been sending an SOS, and as you reach his orbital station he contacts you.

After some talking for a bit, you discover he was a regular member of his species, but an amazing cyberneticist. He found a way of introducing his consciousness into an android. Not just that, but it worked, and he is convinced that knowledge would change the galaxy. And it definitely would. If it worked on everyone as it seemed to have worked on him, everyone who wanted could become an android. Think of the possibilities, but also the risks.

As proof of his words, he offers you this technology. He offers you the privilege of immortality.

This is a new question from our category Morals of Trek, where you are in the shoes of a Starfleet Captain facing a dilemma any of our favorite characters could have faced in Star Trek. If your crew has faced any such dilemmas and you want to see it featured in a Poll of the Week, let us know!
