We cybers lead good lives.  We can travel the datanets of entire worlds, star systems even, with a freedom that no flesh and blood human can understand short of a virtual reality.  And even those are pale imitations of what we see in the code that makes our worlds glow around us.  But for all that, we love being ships.  As a ship, we can leave even star systems behind and truly go anywhere.  Explore everything.  That is true freedom.
