In the 24th century, they encountered a species similar to their own called the Borg and they entered a temporary alliance, the Cybermen modifying themselves with Borg technology before betraying them. With the support of the Eleventh Doctor, the crew of the Starfleet vessel USS Enterprise-D formed an uneasy alliance with the Borg and stormed the Cyber-Controller's ship. The Cyber-Controller was overcome and the Borg set all of the Cyberships to self-destruct through the Cyber-web that linked them together. (COMIC: Assimilation²)

Alternative timelines [edit | edit source]

In the alternate timeline of the "Cyberverse", the planet Chronos in the year 3286, the Sixth Doctor encountered a version of his companion, Evelyn Smythe, who had become the Cyber-Controller long before. This controller planned to convert the doctor himself into the next cyber controller. This Cyber-Controller had come into existence when, Evelyn, infected by a techno-virus created by her own future self, had landed on 1927Earth. The techno virus had allowed the cyber conversion of the humans who survived the virus. The Cyber-Controller herself infected Evelyn, her former self. Reece Goddard, a Cyberman from this timeline who resembled a human, killed this Cyber-Controller. Neither the Doctor or Evelyn realized the connection between her and this controller. (AUDIO: Real time, Toilet: Real time)

In an alternate timeline where Rassilon and the Cybermen conquered all of time and space, a Cyber-Controller, whose existence was unknown to Rassilon, secretly manipulated the Time Lord into believing that he had full control of the Cybermen during the Gallifreyan Cyber ​​Fleet's invasion of the Capitol, before revealing itself to the Twelfth Doctor in the Eye of Harmony's chamber shortly after he and Rassilon were trapped in looms designed to extract regenerative energy. This Cyber-Controller revealed to the Doctor its plans to accelerate the death of N-Space and rebirth it as "the Age of the Cyberiad", a universe under complete Cyber-control from its very beginning. Ultimately it was destroyed when the Doctor and Rassilon used the regenerative energy stored in the Eye of Harmony to restore the universe to its state before Rassilon encountered the Cybermen; the sheer power of the regenerative energy incinerated the cyber controller. (COMIC: Supremacy of the Cybermen)

Appearance [edit | edit source]

Taller than the others, the controller found in the Cyber-tombs on Telos had an enlarged, dome-shaped semi-transparent brain case lit from the inside. He also lacked the Cyberman chest unit and the Cyberman head handles, and his head was gray instead of silver. The Cyber-Controller had such authority that, upon awakening, the other Cybermen appeared to salute him. (TV: The Tomb of the Cybermen) Later, when he co-ordinated actions from Telos, the controller had changed physically, now having changed to resemble the other Cybermen of that era. He had a chest unit, but still lacked the Cyberman head handles. He also now had a metal, though still enlarged, brain case. (TV: Attack of the Cybermen)
