Rutherford with his cybernetic implant

A cybernetic implant was any type of implanted cybernetic device that was used to augment a biological organism, thus creating some level of cybernetic organism. The Borg were heavily augmented with cybernetic implants.

In 2365, prior to the rule of Lieutenant Commander Data's sentience, Captain Jean-Luc Picard considered Starfleet's interests in Commander Bruce Maddox's attempt to disassemble and analyze the Soong-type android in hopes of duplicating the android technology. Data, however, argued against the idea, citing, "Lieutenant La Forge's eyes [in terms of his VISOR] are far superior to Human biological eyes. True? Then why are not all Human officers required to have their eyes replaced with cybernetic implants?" (TNG: "The Measure Of A Man")

In an alternate 2390, Chakotay and Harry Kim reactivated The Doctor in order to determine the time of death of the frozen Seven of Nine, specifically, they wanted him to access her "chronometric node and pinpoint the exact moment her cybernetic implants disengaged from her organic systems." (VOY: "Timeless")

In the 2380s, Ensign Sam Rutherford received a cybernetic implant a few weeks before Ensign D'Vana Tendi arrived to serve aboard the USS Cerritos. (LD: "Second Contact")
