I did something like that in my story-mission "Project Revava", when you get to talk to a partially assimilated Borg drone, Commander Va'Lesh. At first, you have "Talk to the Borg" as a goal, then when you talk to her, she gives a bunch of binary output. Then you get to use a modified tricorder on her so you'd understand her and she you. After this, you get to converse with her using the multiple dialog entries trick that Kirkfat shows in his video.

The initial version of the sequence looked something like the two images here.
