Beta 5 computer image.

The Beta 5 computer was a form of artificial intelligence used by Aegis agents Gary Seven and Roberta Lincoln. Located in Seven's offices in New York City, Beta 5 used voice interface (using a feminine voice), as well as an auxiliary interface resembling a small green cube. (TOS episode: "Assignment: Earth")

Roberta Lincoln tended to personalize the computer, even giving it the nickname "Betty." (ST - Star Trek: Assignment: Earth comic: "We Have Met the Enemy...")

She also tried to familiarize it with slang so that she wouldn't have to give orders in as precise a manner as Seven did. (TOS novel: Elusive Salvation)

At the same time, Lincoln often noted that the computer possessed an attitude. (TOS novel: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 1)

The Beta 5 was destroyed by Khan Noonien Singh on November 9, 1989. Following its destruction, the Beta 6 computer was installed as a replacement. (TOS novels: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 1, The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 2)
