These personality traits may have accounted for La Forge's ability to so easily maintain a relationship with a sentient machine such as Data; that being said, La Forge never saw Data as an android or a machine per se, but as a close friend and treated him no differently than he would have if Data were a sentient biological organism. Brent Spiner, whose primary claim to fame is his portrayal of the beloved android Data on the television series Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987), was born and raised in Houston, Texas.

He was quickly assimilated into the village and given the name "Jayden" by the villagers. (Trek: The Next Generation Crew Book), In his portrayal of Data, Brent Spiner drew his inspiration from two different sources. The late Kevin Peter Hall, Mark Lindsay Chapman, Eric Menyuk and Kelvin Han Yee were all considered for the role of Data before Spiner was cast. (TNG: "The Quality of Life"), Later that year, following an accident in main engineering that activated a dormant program in his positronic brain, Data sought advice from several officers, including Captain Picard, on his "visions." He also appeared in all four TNG-era Star Trek films. (TNG: "Clues") He spent three years as an ensign and twelve as a lieutenant before being promoted to lieutenant commander in 2360.

(Star Trek Phase II: The Lost Series, p. 83), Wherever Roddenberry's thoughts lay in creating Data, Robert Justman concurred that such an android character would be a boon for the series. Data had a sexual relationship with Natasha Yar during the influence of polywater intoxication and attempted a romantic relationship with Jenna D'Sora in late 2367. 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. During an away mission with Geordi La Forge on board the Amargosa observatory, his 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.

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).

The second was the Blade Runner character Roy Batty, as according to Spiner, "I like to think of myself as the Rutger Hauer of this show," adding, "but then I like to think of myself as Rutger Hauer in real life: strikingly handsome, irresistible to women, an intergalactic enigma."

Data joined some of his crew mates as they defended the Ba'ku on the surface from aggressive Son'a abduction attempts. His attempts at humor were not successful, nor were his attempts at romance and love. As Starfleet Vice Admiral Haftel, himself 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.

Data did not hold any ill will towards Riker or Maddox; on the contrary, Data was actually grateful that Riker participated, telling Riker that if he did not, the initial ruling being appealed would have remained in Maddox's favor, and by Riker going against his conscience and potentially condemning his friend and colleague to be disassembled, that action wounded him in order to save Data's life, and was something Data would never forget. When Data was unsuccessful, he interpreted it as a possible weakness and relieved himself of duty. Given the above instances, it is clear Data is capable of using contractions as an affectation. Masaka replied Korgano should begin the hunt again, and at that moment Masaka fell asleep. He later decided to see his difficulties as challenges to be overcame.

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. Network censors did not allow this scene to be used in the film, but a decade later, more relaxed standards allowed an "intimate relationship" to occur between Data and Tasha Yar in "The Naked Now".

In that version, he had been manufactured by highly advanced, but never seen, aliens who placed into him all the memories of a doomed "Earth-Asian" space colony to preserve their existence. Data later returned this favor when Worf learned that the apparently returned Kahless the Unforgettable was actually a clone of the legendary Klingon; Data's reflections about how, after learning of his android nature, he chose to consider himself a person who could progress and grow over time rather than a machine who would never be more than the sum of its parts, convinced Worf to accept Kahless as the symbol that he could be for his own people rather than define him by the circumstances of his origins.

The novel The Buried Age explores Data's first encounter with Picard, with Picard encouraging Data to assert himself and work beyond what his superiors request of him; prior to meeting Picard, Data had shown a lack of career advancement because he always did the job in front of him simply because it didn't occur to him to push himself further or ask for particular assignments over others, adhering to the chain of command without thinking of going beyond the rules. The first few years after activation were difficult for Data as he achieved sentience, the evolution of his positronic brain was hard for him to handle. Soong died shortly afterward, his last words being to assure Data that Data would grieve for him in his own way.

The Soongs were also forced to write a modesty subroutine in order to convince Data to leave his clothes on - Data did not want to wear clothes as he was not affected by the elements, but colonists objected to an anatomically correct android running around naked. (The Fifty-Year Mission: The Next 25 Years, pp. One of Data's first assignments after he graduated Starfleet Academy was aboard the USS Trieste. 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. Even without his memory, Data, through observation and scientific method, discovered it was the metal he had brought with him that was the cause. As Picard was preparing to leave the simulation, Data made one last request to his old friend - that Picard terminate his consciousness. Second, both were Starfleet pioneers; Data and Worf were, respectively, the first android and Klingon Starfleet officers.

The Sheliak insist they be removed before they arrive at the planet, or the Humans will all be killed. After a conversation with Guinan, Picard 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.

Star Trek Films: VIII-X In "Encounter at Farpoint", Data says he graduated with the Starfleet Academy Class of '78, despite the facts that the episode took place in 2364 and Data was assembled in the late 2330s. 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 Soong, the biological son of his creator, to allow Data's consciousness to continue to exist in a massively complex quantum simulation. The crew of the Enterprise encountered another Soong-type android in an underground facility, named Lore. Along with Captain Picard and Dr. Crusher, Data beamed down to the surface, to inspect any damage to the Phoenix. Data's assurance that he is a "fully functional" Human male is a quote from the telemovie. (TNG: "The Chase") His legs were exactly 87.2 centimeters in length. Spiner was opposed to the idea of wearing makeup for his character at first. Star Trek: On second thought: Some serious quibbles For example, why is Picard obsessed with Commander Data?

(TNG: "Peak Performance"), Tasha Yar observed that Data viewed the world with the wonder of a child. The previous, Lore, had been deactivated (TNG: "Datalore") over the protests of Soong's wife Juliana.

Occupation (TNG: "Descent, Part II") Data had rectified this problem as of 2375, and installed some sort of flotation device within his body which was buoyant enough to support not only his own weight but that of others. 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 McKenzie, one of the few reasonable colonists. (TNG: "In Theory"), In 2063, during the Borg attack on the Enterprise-E, which had arrived from the year 2373, Data was abducted by a Borg drone. (TNG: "Code of Honor", "The Bonding", "Brothers", "Phantasms", "Thine Own Self"; Star Trek Generations), His physical and mental capabilities were far superior to that of virtually any organic or cybernetic humanoid, including Klingons, Humans, and even Borg drones. As a consequence, Data considered shutting himself down and beginning all over again. Sibling(s): However, Spiner has noted that he has visibly aged out of the role and that it would be implausible for him to continue playing an android whose appearance should not change with time (though the seventh-season episode "Inheritance" establishes that Data has an aging program that ages his appearance, and "All Good Things…" shows an appearance-aged Data). Data had a vast array of interests and hobbies - including painting, playing Sherlock Holmes on the holodeck, Shakesphere, music, and games of chance like poker. Before Picard was brought back, Data asked Picard for a final favor in terminating his consciousness, as he wished to live knowing that his life was finite. These were considered by Wesley Crusher to be "Some of the highest awards in Starfleet." He was the fifth of six known androids designed by Dr. Noonien Soong. At the recommendation of Captain Picard, he studied Commander Hutchinson while the Enterprise underwent a baryon sweep at Arkaria Base. (TNG: "A Fistful of Datas"), 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. Later, for his personnel file in "Conundrum", these dates were changed to 2341 and 2345. In late 2367, Lieutenant Jenna D'Sora found herself in love with Data. (TNG: "Eye of the Beholder"), His connection with Starfleet resulted in his choice to enter Starfleet Academy. (TNG: "The Child") She was also condescending towards Data and often spoke to him through other crewmembers. Upon suspecting a Borg presence aboard the Enterprise, however, Picard and Data transported back to the ship. Data fired a spread of quantum torpedoes but they missed by the smallest of margins, and quickly thereafter he burst a plasma coolant tank, releasing plasma coolant, which would liquefy organic material on contact, killing the Borg. (TNG: "Birthright, Part I"), Data demonstrates his flotation capabilities, Before 2370, Data was apparently incapable of swimming, as his body structure was too dense for him to float in water. (TNG: "Gambit, Part II"), When Dr. Pulaski came aboard the Enterprise in 2365, she was not very kind toward Data, because of her discomfort with technology. In 2366, Data perfected submicron matrix transfer technology, necessary to reproduce a positronic brain. Dr. Pulaski talked to Data and made him realize that one letdown did not necessarily mean total failure and encouraged him to return to duty, but with no success. Working with LaForge and the Daystrom Institute Data had his new body's brain upgraded and re-created the emotion chip. On the surface, Data experienced his first emotion while fighting off a Borg drone, violently beating the drone against the wall. (TNG: "Parallels"), In an unknown, alternate future timeframe, Data was a professor (the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics) at Cambridge University and lived at Isaac Newton's house with a housekeeper and several cats. In 2365, Jean-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. Upon discovery of the cloaked ship, Data was fired upon by a Son'a weapon. At Data's memorial service, Riker could not remember what song Data was trying to whistle. Data also briefly appeared to the Zhat Vash in the Admonition, an ancient storehouse of preserved memories on the planet Aia left behind by the Aia natives which warned about the dangers of intelligent Synthetic life. He briefly considered a form of suicide - shutting down and having his neural net wiped. 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. As Data's sacrifice had greatly weighed on Picard's mind after all this time, Data reassured Picard that he did not regret sacrificing his life to save Picard. He was very much like an infant at first, struggling with motor control and sensory input. Deceased (2399) Take your favorite fandoms with you and never miss a beat. Fortunately, Data, with the assistance of Fajo's partner Varria, as well as the arrival of the Enterprise, was 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. He has modified himself to be able to experience every nuance of Human emotion as well as many alien ones. (TNG: "Starship Mine"), During Worf's promotion ceremony in 2371, Dr. Crusher tried to explain to Data the humor behind Worf being dunked after walking the plank on the holodeck recreation of the sailing ship Enterprise. Although the ship had been ordered to the Romulan Neutral Zone, Data'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. (PIC: "Et in Arcadia Ego, Part 2"), Data and La Forge in a Sherlock Holmes holonovel, 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. Watson. (Star Trek Generations), By 2373, Data 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. The incident led him to think his development had reached an impasse. He was deactivated and dismantled, Soong intended to repair him. "A new character like this would give us any number of dramatic or humorous avenues." On 9 April 2008, the character of Data was inducted into Carnegie Mellon University's Robot Hall of Fame.
