A group of A500 androids

The A500 was a type of android designed and constructed by the Daystrom Institute's Division of Advanced Synthetic Research for use as manual labor during the 2380s. (PIC: "Remembrance")

In 2385, these synths were compromised by the Zhat Vash and used for the attack on Mars. (PIC: "Maps and Legends", "The End is the Beginning")

The novel The Last Best Hope establishes that the A500 was created by Bruce Maddox and Estella Mackenzie at the behest of Geordi La Forge. The A500s were developed by combining Maddox's expertise in cybernetics with Mackenzie's work in bio-neural circuitry. They were not sentient and were designed to serve as a labor force for Utopia Planitia Fleet Yards' efforts to mass produce a fleet of transport ships to relocate Romulans and others threatened by the imminent supernova of the Romulan sun. They came online in late 2382 and were in mass production by 2383, with scores of A500s already beginning their work on Mars.
