After this, he began sleeping regularly in order to experience these dreams. Deanna Troi could not sense him empathically ; nor was he affected by the telepathic broadcasts of the Bendii Syndrome -afflicted Sarek. TNG : " Night Terrors ", " The Game ", " Violations ", " Phantasms ", " Sarek " This was known to trouble him to a certain degree, as he believed that it was possible that there was simply nothing "real" in his mind for these individuals to read; that his consciousness was comprised only of "algorithms and programmed responses".
However, the psionically-gifted Betazoid Tam Elbrun vehemently disagreed with this possibility, thinking Data was simply "different". In fact, Tam greatly appreciated this quality in Data, as it meant that he had to talk with Data to understand his personality rather than involuntarily receiving that information telepathically, as tended to be the case when he interacted with other humanoids.
TNG : " Tin Man ". Data had an aging program designed to simulate the external effects of aging in his physical appearance. The blinking of his eyes was governed by a Fourier seriesto simulate randomness.
Julian Bashir further expressed his fascination for all the trouble Dr. Soong took to make Data seem "Human. He also questioned Data about whether his hair grew, and observed that Data was "breathing" and had a "pulse. Neither system was entirely necessary however, as Data was known to be capable of functioning for extended periods in a vacuum and was able to withstand exposure to space without suffering any problems.
However, he was completely ambidextrous and was even capable of performing such tasks as painting two pieces at once. BeforeData was apparently incapable of swimming, as his body structure was too dense for him to float in water. He apparently learned this through trial and error, as at one point prior to the date in question, he decided to to go swimming in Devala Lake while sailing with Geordi La Forge.
He immediately sank straight to the bottom, and he ended up having to walk 1. It took nearly two weeks to get the water out of Data's servos. TNG : " Descent, Part II " Data had rectified this problem as ofand installed some sort of flotation device within his body which was buoyant enough to support not only his own weight but that of others.
Star Trek: Insurrection. Data asserted that he did not only perceive data and facts, but also the "substance" and "flavor" and other ineffable qualities of the experience, which would be lost when downloaded to a conventional computer. Data always sought to become more Human in his behavior, sometimes with unfortunate results. His attempts at humor were not successful, nor were his attempts at romance and love.
He maintained a relationship with Jenna D'Sorabut it did not last long. TNG : " In Theory ". Besides humor and romance, Data also tended to avoid using contractions in regular speech as he had difficulty defining the nuanced occasions on which they were used, although this was part of his programming by Dr.
TNG : " Conspiracy ", " Datalore ". In an alternate timeline, Data appeared to have mastered contractions by the s.
During his stay aboard the Enterprise -D, Data kept a cat as his petwhom he named Spot. Spot was quite fussy in her relationships. Besides Data, she only enjoyed the company of Reginald Barclay. She also had kittens in InSpot survived the destruction of the Enterprise.
Data, newly imbued with emotions as a result of his emotion chipcried tears of joy over Spot's survival. Data began using the emotion chip inabout a year after he acquired it from his brother Lore. TNG : " Brothers ", " Descent, Part II "; Star Trek Generations At first, he had some difficulties adjusting to the onslaught of emotions, as simple things such as scanning for lifeforms on a planet caused him great pleasure — whereas by contrast, Data was temporarily immobilized with terror when put in a situation where he would experience fear for the first time.
He eventually learned to control the feelings. After the initial adjustment period, he was able to activate and deactivate the chip's functioning within his positronic net, and later even to remove it completely in situations where emotions would be a hindrance.
Data was constructed on the planet Omicron Theta around He was the fifth of six known androids designed by Dr. Noonien Soong. TNG : " Inheritance " Soong claimed he built Data to perfect his design of his androids, and when Data was perfected, apply his improvements to Lore. TNG : " Brothers " Juliana had come to view Data as her beloved son, but always feared that he would fail, as his previous "brothers" had, or become dangerous, like Loreand would have to be dismantled. TNG : " Inheritance ".
In his earliest existence, Data was much like a baby, struggling with motor control and sensory input. Soong, who attempted to eliminate certain undesirable behaviors.
Problems included a disregard for social niceties, courtesies like "please" and "thank you", and a lack of appreciation for clothing, Data did not see any necessity since he "didn't suffer from the elements".
In regards to the latter issue, the Soongs had to write a "modesty subroutine ", because the colonists objected to an anatomically-accurate android being unclothed. Eventually Soong decided to feed Data with the logs and journals of the colonists, while simultaneously wiping his memory of his early existence.
Unfortunately, while Data was still deactivated, a mysterious Crystalline Entity attacked the colony. TNG : " Datalore " Juliana's fears that Data would be another failure motivated her to lie to her husband when they fled, forcing him to leave Data behind, inactive.
Data remained alone on the planet, inactive and abandoned by the colonists, until he was discovered by a landing party from the USS Tripoli on Omicron Theta.
Data was found and reactivated on the planet Omicron Theta by the USS Tripoli on February 2, after the Crystalline Entity destroyed Brian Ruryk - Guitar Stuck In Blades Of Fan (CDr) entire colony on the planet. TNG : " Datalore ", " Conundrum ". In the first few weeks after Data was reactivated, and without the early presence of Noonien and Juliana Soong, Data claimed he had no one to guide him as his neural net was developing and achieving sentience.
As the integration of these pathways became increasingly difficult, the probability of cascade failure increased. As a consequence, Data considered shutting himself down and beginning all over again. He eventually considered the situation a challenge and continued on. He later expressed to La Forge that, in essence, he considered suicide at a difficult point in his early life.
TNG : " Eye of the Beholder ". His connection with Starfleet resulted in his choice to enter Starfleet Academy. TNG : " Brothers " Upon applying for admittance to the Academy, Data met with some resistance from Bruce Maddox — who, desiring the opportunity to avail his cybernetic research interests, became, as Data put it, " the only member of the evaluation committee to oppose [Data's] entrance on the grounds that [he] was not a sentient being.
Prior toData had been cited in several bio-mechanical texts. During his time at Starfleet Academy, Data did extremely well scholastically, but his lack of understanding often created social obstacles for him. He fell victim to several practical jokes and had difficulty with social gatherings. TNG : " Clues " He spent three years as an ensign and twelve as a lieutenant before being promoted to lieutenant commander in These were considered by Wesley Crusher to be "Some of the highest awards in Starfleet.
TNG : " Darmok ". Data served as operations officer and second officer on board the USS Enterprise -D from until the vessel's destruction in TNG : " A Matter of Time " He frequently participated in away missions undertaken by the crew, as was indicated by standard procedure for the second officer of a Federation starship. Shortly after the Farpoint mission, the Enterprise crew was infected with a polywater intoxication which caused the crew members and even Data to act irrationally, as if mentally unstable.
Fortunately, Dr. Crusher found an antidote, and with Data's help the recovered crew was able to retain control of the ship. During the Enterprise 's first year of active service, it visited the former colony of Omicron Theta, stopping there to investigate the site of Data's discovery.
The crew of the Enterprise encountered another Soong-type android in an underground facility, named Lore. Lore was subsequently reassembled and activated aboard the Enterprise. Masquerading as Data, Lore attempted to take control of the ship, but was prevented from doing so by Data. Lore was transported, by Wesley Crusher off the ship, into space Lore drifted in the interstellar void for two years before being rescued by a passing Pakled trade ship.
TNG : " Datalore ", " Brothers ". Later that year, Data took overall command of the Enterprise when a holodeck virus incapacitated the entire crew while in orbit around Angel I. Although the ship had been ordered to the Romulan Neutral ZoneData's precise and reasoned interpretation of the orders allowed the Enterprise to remain in orbit long enough to rescue the away team members stranded on the planet.
TNG : " Angel One ". Data had been regarded as property by the Ferengiwho wanted to purchase him. He was also referred to as "just a device" by Armus. TNG : " The Battle ", " Skin of Evil " He continued to be regarded as such in and was even questioned legally as to whether or not he was property of Starfleet.
Data was a major influence in the process to legally and socially recognize the sentience of Soong-type androids. InJean-Luc Picard was asked by Admiral Nakamura on behalf of Commander Bruce Maddox to submit Data to an untested procedure that Maddox believed and had advocated would grant Federation cybernetic science a greater understanding of the technology of Data's positronic brain.
Data studied Maddox' proposal and found it to be flawed; persuading William T. Riker and Picard of the legitimacy of Data's position as to the scientific merit of Maddox' project; prompting Maddox to present Nakamura's duly-logged orders requiring Data to submit.
Data refused, and resigned from Starfleet. Maddox challenged Data's right to do so, implying that Data should not be considered a sentient being with rights to self-determination Louvois reminds Maddox " …we have Rule of Law in this Federation. You cannot simply seize people and experiment on them to satisfy your pet theories! Maddox's petition prompted Louvois' supposition of a legal issue as to whether or not Data was property and not to be accorded rights to self-determination " Would you permit the Enterprise computer to refuse a refit?
This position was supported in a preliminary ruling, by Captain Phillipa Louvois of the Judge Advocate General 's office, 23rd Sector, based on the 21st-century Acts of Cumberland. Have him report to Commander Maddox immediately for experimental refit. Captain Jean-Luc Picard adversarially challenged this ruling, and sought due process of law in Data's regard. Picard asserted a position in favor of Data's sentience as a matter of law, in a legal hearing wherein Picard advocated on Data's behalf while Riker advocated a position benefiting Maddox Riker was forced to argue against Data's sentience or Louvois would summarily rule in favor of Maddox without a counter-argument.
After a conversation with GuinanPicard became inspired to assert that Data represented an entire race, and that duplicating Data for the purposes of enforced and potentially-dangerous labor, without legal recognition of rights to self-determination, essentially would result in the institution of slavery. Ultimately, Louvois ruled that Data was not the property of Starfleet, and had the legal right to choose whether to acquiesce to Maddox' requests. TNG : " The Measure Of A Man " Data refused Maddox' procedure, but did instead offer to openly communicate with him in assisting him in his work, which the cyberneticist accepted.
TNG : " Data's Day ". Data also later asserted specific reproductive rights. InData perfected submicron matrix transfer technology, necessary to reproduce a positronic brain. Data designed and built his " daughter ", whom Data named Lal ; Data says "Lal" means "beloved" in Earth's Hindi language; using his own positronic brain as a design template. Thus, Data briefly succeeded at Maddox' aspiration. As Starfleet Vice Admiral Anthony Haftelhimself a cybernetics specialist, wanted to move Lal off the Enterprise -D to a Starfleet cybernetics research facility for study in order to add to Federation cybernetics expertise, against Data's wishes, Picard again came into conflict with the Starfleet Admiralty as to Data's civil rights.
The issue was rendered moot when Lal ceased functioning due to positronic neural-pathway cascade failure arising from the positronic development within Lal of the simulation of Human psychological emotional response. This, despite the best efforts of Data and Haftel to prevent Lal's positronic matrix from ceasing to function as a result. TNG : " The Offspring ". Many agreed with Data that Soong-type androids were sufficiently advanced to be considered indeed sentient, so much so that, as ofData was considered the only sentient artificial lifeform in Federation society.
VOY : " Prototype ". Inthe Enterprise -D was contacted by Sheliak Corporate for the first time in years. In a recorded message, set on repeat broadcast from the Shelia system, they demand that on Tau Cygna Va planet that was ceded to the Sheliak from the Federation in the Treaty of Armens has been discovered to contain a Human colony.
The Sheliak insist they be removed before they arrive at the planet, or the Humans will all be killed. Data — immune to the deadly hyperonic radiation that exists on the planet — was ordered to take a shuttle craft and land at the planet and prepare the colonists for evacuation.
Unfortunately, the colony's leader Gosheven was both far too stubborn and nostalgic for all his ancestors' accomplishments on the planet to agree to leave even after several attempts to persuade him or other colonists, even with the help of Ard'rian McKenzieone of the few reasonable colonists. Eventually, through a demonstration of the firepower of a Type 2 phaserData was able to finally convince the colonists to leave, thereby saving over 15, Humans from certain death.
In lateData was apparently killed when the shuttlecraft he was using to ferry hytritium ; desperately needed to neutralize contamination of the water on Beta Agni II ; exploded, en route from the freighter Jovis to the Enterprise -D. In fact, Data had been abducted by the owner of the Jovis Kivas Fajowho had added Data to his collection of "rare and valuable" items — which, now besides Data, included a Laplinga Roger Maris Baseball cardand a Varon-T disruptor.
Fortunately, Data, with the assistance of Fajo's partner Varriaas well as the arrival of the Enterprisewas able to escape the Jovis ; the unanticipated ease with which the hytritium purified Beta Agni II's water suggested that the contamination had been man-made, leaving the crew suspicious of Fajo — and, after hearing the computer's description of only a part of Fajo's collection, they had concluded that Data could be considered a "rare and valuable object", leading them to the possibility that Data had not been on board the shuttle when it exploded.
Upon Data's return to the Enterprise -D, Fajo was arrested. Data had previously mentioned to Fajo his ability to use deadly force and had it not been for the functioning of the Enterprise transporter retrieving Data from the JovisData would have successfully shot and killed Fajo with the Varon-T disruptor, in retribution for Fajo previously having killed Varria with it and through a cold, logical decision that all nonlethal options had been exhausted.
When later that year, Captain Picard was captured and assimilated as Locutus by the BorgData was instrumental in not only rescuing Picard from the Borg, but also in finding a way to destroy the Borg cube approaching Earth by "put[ting] them all to sleep," accessing the command codes that controlled regeneration and convincing the Borg that they all needed to regenerate, thus shutting the ship down and triggering a feedback loop that caused the cube to self-destruct.
A year later, in earlyData, under the control of Dr. Unfortunately, the same program had activated in Lore's positronic brain, and brought Lore to Soong's lab as well. Soong explained he had brought Data because he had created an emotion chip for him, and that he had thought Lore to be dead. Lore incapacitated Data, and Soong mistakenly implanted the chip in Lore instead.
After obtaining the chip under these false pretenses, Lore attacked Soong and escaped. Soong died shortly afterward, his last words being to assure Data that Data would grieve for him in his own way. In return, Data called Soong "Father" for the first time. TNG : " Brothers ". Data once more took command of the ship later that year when, with the Enterprise trapped in a Tyken's Riftthe crew began to suffer from lack of REM sleepcausing to the organic crew of the Enterprise -D the loss of concentration and to perceive hallucinations.
The brainwaves of the crew were being affected by a ship trapped on the other side of the rift, whose crew was attempting to communicate with the Enterprisebut Data's android nature and his inability to sleep or dream rendered him immune.
Along with Counselor TroiData freed the ships by releasing hydrogen ; which when combined with a substance carried by the other ship released enough energy to collapse the rift.
TNG : " Night Terrors ". Despite the first officer being hostile to his android nature, the Sutherland managed to detect the cloaked Romulan ships trying to supply the forces of Duras. Once back aboard the EnterpriseData submitted himself to Captain Picard and recommended he be disciplined for disobeying the direct order of a superior officer, but was instead praised by Captain Picard for his ingenuity in discovering the cloaked Romulan convoy: " Starfleet does not want officers who blindly follow orders.
The three insisted the Enterprise conducted a systematic survey of the polar region of a moon ; a notion Captain Picard, Commander Riker and the rest of the crew considered absurd. When Riker questioned their reasoning, the three staged a violent revolt and took control of the ship.
It was later determined by the command crew that the three were controlled by the "spirits" of deceased criminals from Ux-Maland eventually the spirits left the Enterprise for their banishment on the moon. Though Data had no control over his actions while under the control of the Ux-Mal criminal, he nonetheless apologized for his behavior toward his fellow officers.
TNG : " Power Play ". In earlythe Enterprise crew was summoned to San Francisco to evaluate a discovery of extraterrestrial life on Earth that dated back to the late 19th century. They were shocked to discover Data's head, old, dusty, and dead, had been found among the ruins of some 19th-century artifacts.
When La Forge concluded that the only species capable of time travel and of assuming Human form existed solely on the planet Devidia IIthe Enterprise set course for the planetoid.
Data meeting Guinan on Earth in after he had seen her picture in a local newspaper. Arriving at Devidia II, Troi psionically sensed lifeforms, but none were seen to be physically present. Since Data was the only hope for controlling the distortion in phase displacement, he beamed down and soon disappeared, reappearing in the San Francisco of the late s.
He quickly adapted to his surroundings and set out to build a sensory device to sense the Devidian time-shifts in order to ultimately return to the 24th century and the Enterprise -D. Shortly thereafter, he incidentally met Guinanwho was hiding out from her father on Earth at the time. Seeking to recover Data, the senior staff transported to 19th century San Francisco to find him.
In a local morgueRiker and Crusher realized the aliens from Devidia II, disguised as Humans, were slowly killing off the population by appropriating their neural energy and sending it to the 24th century to feed their own people.
Even though Data's cranial unit had been severed from his body when he tried to control the Ophidian that controlled their time-travel technology, the crew were able to take Data's body back through the time-rift and use the cranial unit they had recovered from the Presidio mine site to reassemble Data Data subsequently passing on a message from Picard that Picard had entered into his head in the past with an iron filing to tap out a binary code in his brain.
Later that year, Data and La Forge proposed to connect Data to the ship's systems so he might act as an emergency backup system in case of a ship-wide systems failure. As a result of the experiment, however, Lt. Worfhis son Alexanderand Counselor Troi were trapped in a malfunctioning Old West holodeck program wherein every character physically resembled Data. Data wore a command division uniform when Jellico made him XO. Captain Edward Jellico briefly took command of the Enterprise while Captain Picard participated in a covert mission in Cardassian space.
Jellico came into conflict with Commander Riker and eventually relieved Riker of duty. Being next in the chain of command after Riker, Data took the position of first officer until Captain Picard's return. In earlyhe was among the away team that beamed down to the Ohniaka III outpostwhose distress call the Enterprise had responded to. On the surface, Data experienced his first emotion while fighting off a Borg drone, violently beating the drone against the wall.
With the captured drone CrosisData took a shuttlecraft and left the Enterprise. Captain Picard and an away team tracked Data down and were shocked to find him under the influence of his brother Lorewho had directed the Borg's attacks as part of an attempt to win Data to his side. Lore modified the chip so it could remotely instill anger and hatred in Data.
Confused with his new emotions, and with his ethical program deactivated, Data betrayed the crew of the Enterpriseresulting in the capture of Picard, La Forge and Troi. Fortunately, La Forge was able to instruct Picard in modifying a Borg interlink transceiver to reset Data's ethical program with a kedion pulserestoring his sense of right and wrong; he would still experience negative emotions, however, he could at least choose whether or not to act upon them. With Data's ethical program reactivated, and Riker and Worf leading a rescue attempt with the help of the drone Hugh who had spent time aboard the Enterprise earlier that year Picard and his team were able to reactivate Data's ethical program and Data subsequently shot Lore, recovering the emotion chip while Lore was later dismantled.
Later that year, with Captain Picard presumed dead and Commander Riker missing in action, Data assumed command of the Enterprise once more, in an effort to find those responsible for Picard's apparent death and Riker's capture. Even though he was lower in rank, Lieutenant Worf was appointed as acting first officer instead of Lieutenant Commander La Forge, but Worf and Data came into a confrontation when Worf questioned his orders openly in front of the crew on a number of occasions.
After being sent to recover a crashed probe, Data lost his memory and sought refuge with primitive villagers nearby. He was quickly assimilated into the village and given the name "Jayden" by the villagers. However, the radioactive material from the probe that he was transporting was a danger to them.
Even without his memory, Data, through observation and scientific method, discovered it was the metal he had brought with him that was the cause. Once he had the radioactive metal secured to prevent further harm, he came up with an antidote that would completely reverse the effects and while being confronted by the fearful villagers, dumped it into the Brian Ruryk - Guitar Stuck In Blades Of Fan (CDr) water supply.
In their ignorance, they killed "Jayden" and buried him, but turned his grave into a commemorative monument in his honor after they realized his cure had saved them. Data was later retrieved by Commander Riker and Dr. Crusher, repaired and his memory was restored aboard the Enterprisealthough his time on the planet was lost in turn. Shortly after the incident, La Forge found behavior nodes in Data's positronic net and he thought that an alien "archive" was using Data to create different people and that this transformation was still going on.
Counselor Troi added that Data was experiencing the android equivalent of "multiple personalities" and that it was indeterminate how many would emerge. Masaka thought she was alone and did not have to share the sky with anyone when Korgano told her that without him she was not complete.
Korgano soon convinced Masaka was getting tired to brighten the sky forever. Masaka replied Korgano should begin the hunt again, and at that moment Masaka fell asleep.
When Picard asked Data whether he was all right, Data answered he was not entirely certain what happened and wondered if he had been dreaming again. TNG : " Masks ". Inat the ceremony honoring Worf's promotion to Lieutenant Commander, Data witnessed an incident where Worf was "accidentally" sent into the water in a holographic simulation of a ship at sea.
Misinterpreting the laughter it evoked, he then spontaneously pushed Dr. Beverly Crusher overboard. He was disheartened to find out that it wasn't quite as amusing as he had assumed. The incident led him to think his development had reached an impasse.
This influenced Data's decision to install the emotion chip he had acquired from Lore previously that year. The results were unpredictable and later attributed to the overload of new and unfamiliar emotion. During an away mission with Geordi La Forge on board the Amargosa observatoryhis recall of previous humorous incidents led to the emotion chip overloading, fusing into his neural net much to La Forge's annoyance and rendering Data helpless as Tolian Soran sneaked on board and kidnapped La Forge.
Unable to deal with the sudden onset of fear as a result, Data curled up in a corner as Soran beamed away with La Forge. As the Enterprise investigated, Data was overcome by yet another emotion: Regret, over getting La Forge captured.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard, himself trying to get over news of the death of his brother and nephew, helped Data get through his anguish, and the two managed to figure out where Soran was headed, and why. Upon arrival at planet Veridian IIIwhere Soran was planning to implode the Veridian sun with a trilithium missile so that Soran could enter the NexusData was finally able to experience relief as Geordi La Forge was returned to Enterprise unharmed.
Data continued to work on controlling his emotions throughout the mission, Enterprise 's battle with the Duras sistersand the crash landing of the saucer section on Veridian III. By the end of the mission, when Starfleet came to recover the Enterprise crew and anything that could be salvaged from the saucer section, Data reckoned to have experienced distinct emotional states. Star Trek Generations. ByData had developed the ability to activate and deactivate his emotion chip at will, since he had learned how to better control its function and integration into his positronic net.
Star Trek: First Contact. Inthe Enterprise took part in the Battle of Sectoragainst Starfleet orders. Thanks to the ship's intervention, the Borg cube was destroyed, but not before it launched a spherewhich generated a temporal vortex and time-traveled to the year The Enterprise pursued, and destroyed the sphere with quantum torpedoes preventing its forecast mission to prevent the first flight of Zefram Cochrane aboard the Phoenix warp ship.
Along with Captain Picard and Dr. Crusher, Data beamed down to the surface, to inspect any damage to the Phoenix. Upon suspecting a Borg presence aboard the Enterprisehowever, Picard and Data transported back to the ship. While fighting off the Borg near main engineeringData was captured and brought before the Borg Queen.
Instead of attempting to assimilate Data, she embarked on a transformative process to make Data more "Human," by attaching Human skin onto his android skeleton.
When it appeared impossible to deter the Borg any longer, Picard was persuaded by Lily Sloane to initiate the self-destruct of the Enterprise and he ordered all remaining crew to evacuate. However, Picard went to Engineering to find Data and to force the Queen, whom he had encountered several years previously when he was Locutusto release Data.
Picard even declared that he was prepared to take Data's place at the Queen's side and become her equal. However, Data stated he did not wish to go, even after the Queen ordered him away. Data then canceled the auto-destruct sequence and restored computer control; even as Picard begged him not to, the android gave one quick glance to his former commander, before walking past him as if he was nothing.
Thus, the Queen ordered Picard's assimilation Data assured her that Picard would "make an excellent drone"but not before witnessing the destruction of the Phoenix by Data. However, his "assimilation" had all been a ruse — the quantum torpedoes fired by Data Brian Ruryk - Guitar Stuck In Blades Of Fan (CDr) the Phoenix by the smallest of margins, and quickly thereafter Data ruptured a plasma coolant tank the Queen had been too busy taunting Picard to notice his approach to itreleasing plasma coolant — which would dissolve organic material on contact.
Picard was able to escape, but the Queen — or, at least, that version of her — was killed, pulled into the coolant by Data as she tried to take Picard down with her. Helping Data standing up with the Borg-given skin melted away, but his mechanical parts undamaged, the android admitted that he didn't feel as bad as he must lookPicard asked him if he was ever tempted to join the Borg's cause.
Data replied that, for 0. He added that, for an android, that is "almost an eternity. The ship was intended as a means to relocate the Ba'ku people from their home world without their knowledge, clearing the way for the mining of metaphasic radiation from the planet's rings. Upon discovery of the cloaked ship, Data was fired upon by a Son'a weapon.
The attack resulted in minor physical damage to his neck and some of his memory engrams, causing Data's memory loss fail-safe system to activate. Data's ethical and moral subroutines asserted themselves over all his basic functions.
Effectively, Data had entered a self-preservation mode in which "all" he knew was right and wrong. The Enterprise crew was able to piece together what had happened — and staged an insurrection against the Federation-Son'a partnership. Data joined some of his crew mates as they defended the Ba'ku on the surface from aggressive Son'a abduction attempts. Later, Data attacked the Son'a flagship with a scoutship, firing tachyon bursts into the shield grid and forcing the ship to rotate its shield harmonics.
This allowed the transport of the Son'a ship's crew off their bridge and onto the cloaked holoship. During his time on Ba'ku, Data reflected on never having been a child. He became friends with Artim and learned how to play. En route to Betazed for the second phase of Riker's wedding to Counselor Troi, the Enterprise discovered B-4one of the three prototype Soong-type androids Data had learned about years earlier, physically identical to him but having a less sophisticated positronic brain.
Trying to help him become more Human, Data copied his own memories into B-4's positronic net. Before Data could take the role of first officer of the Enterprisethe Enterprise was ordered to Romulus where a new praetorShinzonhad come to power. Shinzon's self-asserted good intentions, however, were soon found to be false. In reality, Shinzon was discovered to be a clone of Captain Picard and, due to genetic degeneration, he was in need of Picard's blood in order to restore his life.
After Shinzon's vessel, the Scimitarhad all but destroyed the EnterpriseShinzon planned to eliminate the crew with his thalaron radiation weapon before turning it on Earth. Though Picard was able to defeat Shinzon in hand-to-hand combat, Picard was trapped aboard the Scimitar due to damage to the Enterprise transporters.
With no other option, Data elected to physically jump into the vacuum of space through a hull breach in the forward section of the Enterprise — and force his way aboard the Scimitar from the outside. Proceeding to the Scimitar bridge, Data utilized a prototype emergency transport unit concealed in his forearm, to return Picard to the Enterprise. With the thalaron radiation weapon seconds away from firing, Data used his phaser to destroy it, which resulted in the complete destruction of the Scimitar — and Data as well.
As the Enterprise crew mourned the loss of their fallen comrade, Captain Picard attempted to explain Data's uniqueness to B-4, though to the captain's dejection, the android did not understand. However, B-4 soon began to quietly sing the same song Data had previously sung, " Blue Skies ", at the Riker wedding to himself.
Though Data was gone, perhaps his memories would continue to live on. Star Trek Nemesis. Despite the android's best effort, Data's attempts to copy his own memories into B-4's positronic net had ultimately failed, Brian Ruryk - Guitar Stuck In Blades Of Fan (CDr), and that as a result most of Data's positronic net was lost.
PIC : " Remembrance ". Data also briefly appeared to the Zhat Vash in the Admonitionan ancient storehouse of preserved memories on the planet Aia left behind by the Aia natives which warned about the dangers of intelligent Synthetic life. Approximately fifty years after his construction, Noonien Soong's son Altan Inigo Soongassisted by Bruce Maddox, successfully created the Coppelius androids via the fractal neuronic cloning of one of Data's positronic neurons.
Multiple androids were created as offspring of Data, including Beautiful FlowerJana and twins Dahj and Soji Ashawho were also eventually created based on the likeness of his painting Daughter.
PIC : " Broken Pieces ". Captain, and later Admiral, Picard continued to remember Data fondly. During his retirement, Picard had a series of recurring dreams in which he played poker with the android aboard the Enterprise -D. InPicard had a dream of witnessing Data painting Daughter in the Picard family vineyards after he met Dahj. Despite the destruction of Data's physical form, the memories he uploaded into B-4 before his death as well as a single neuron were used by Bruce Maddox and Altan Inigo Soongthe biological son of his creator, to allow Data's consciousness to continue to exist in a massively complex quantum simulation.
InData encountered the consciousness of Jean-Luc Picard while his memories were in the process of being uploaded to Soong's golem. The two had a discussion in which Data confirmed he did not regret sacrificing his life for Picard and that he was aware of Picard's love and affection for him. As Picard was preparing to leave the simulation, Data made one last request to his old friend - that Picard terminate his consciousness.
He explained to Picard that the finite nature of Human life helped define and give it meaning. Once Picard left the simulation, he complied with Data's request. As Picard deactivated the simulation, Data spent the time he had left enjoying a glass of wine, listening to " Blue Skies " on a record playerthen reclining on a sofa until he passed with a simulated Picard by his side.
After deactivating the simulation, Picard postulated that despite the "violence and corruption and willful ignorance" of Humanity, Data was still able to see kindness, curiosity, and greatness of spirit possessed within the Human race, motivating his desire to be a part of the Human family. Data was fond of Sherlock Holmes and enjoyed playing the great detective in a holodeck program, often accompanied by Geordi La Forge in the role of Dr. Data also twice accompanied Picard in his holonovels of the Dixon Hill seriesplaying " Carlosfrom South America," one of the private eye's associates.
Data had been known to play poker with people from other time periods, including Stephen HawkingAlbert Einsteinand Sir Isaac Newtonout of interest as to how they would interact in such a situation.
He called the exercise "most illuminating". TNG : " Descent ". Data pursued many of the higher arts of Earth. He developed his painting skills, creating art of many styles and subjects. He performed in plays and wrote poetry, although his lack of emotions meant that his poems commonly focused more on accurate poetical structure without the content evoking any kind of emotional reaction.
He also played classical guitar and the oboe. Riker and Deanna Troi 's wedding. Data maintained close relationships with most of the Enterprise senior staff — during his time aboard the Jovisafter La Forge's furious refusal to accept that Data himself was somehow responsible for the shuttlecraft explosion that supposedly killed him, Riker told Captain Picard that, for someone incapable of emotion, he certainly evoked them strongly in others around him.
Data regarded Picard as something of a father figure throughout his service, asking for Picard's advice on numerous occasions in his quest to become more Human.
Picard always gave Data advice whenever he could. Following Tasha Yar 's death inData was puzzled about her death, thinking not about Yar but rather how he would subsequently feel in her absence, thinking that he missed the purpose of her memorial but Picard assured him that he understood the purpose of the memorial perfectly.
TNG : " Skin of Evil ". InData's existence was threatened when Commander Maddox wished to disassemble and study Data to gain a better understanding of how his positronic brain functioned. Data refused to submit to Maddox's procedure, finding his research flawed but Maddox claimed that Data was property of Starfleet and therefore not a sentient being and as a result had no choice other than to submit to the procedure.
Captain Louvois supported Maddox's claim and Picard intervened by challenging their reasoning, saying that Data was indeed sentient and deserved the freedom to make his own decisions. He also said that Data represented an entire race and that forcing him to submit to Maddox's procedure was tantamount to slavery — strictly prohibited under Federation law. Ultimately, Louvois sided with Picard's standpoint and agreed that Data, android or not, was indeed sentient and entitled to the same rights as any other Starfleet officer.
InPicard's seemingly unbreakable trust in Data was tested when Data refused to fully co-operate in an investigation into a number of events that happened within a hour time span although Data claimed that the time span was only thirty seconds. Data's intransigence threatened to end his Starfleet career and even his own existence but it was later revealed that Captain Picard was himself responsible for Data's unusual behavior after an encounter with the Paxans in a T-Tauri type star system.
