* In an episode of ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'', an "upgrade" to the ''Enterprise'''s computer causes it to start talking flirtatiously and calling the captain "Dear".

* In the Buffyverse fanfic ''FanFic/Ship of the Line: An Unquenchable Fire'', A cataclysmic version of the Halloween reality-shifting event creates a perfect, functional duplicate of the Executor, Darth Vader's enormous flagship from The Empire Strikes Back, hovering several thousand kilometers directly over Sunnydale. When Buffy (whose personality has been altered by her costume to be an amalgamation of herself and Vader) finds herself aboard the ship and entirely alone, she finds a way to load her dead sister's personality matrix into the ship's computers. This results in the full destructive power of an Imperial Super-Dreadnought resting in the holographic hands of an eleven-year-old girl. Earth's military quickly regrets lobbing a pair of nuclear devices at the 'invading' starship.

** In Andromeda's case, it lead to some name confusion, since there was also a tactical analysis version of Rommie, as well as the basic ship AI and the android. This occasionally led to disagreements between them.
