This is how Wikipedia defines Data:
"Data was an artificial lifeform designed to resemble a human, with a positronic brain. He was roughly the counterpart of Spock from the original series in that he had a rational, analytical mind and found humans hard to understand, yet was drawn to the concept of humanity. (He also found Vulcan perspectives regarding logic and stoicism rather limiting.) This desire, combined with his honesty and apparent innocence about the reality around him, charmed viewers and made him one of the most popular characters of the series."
My guess is that there are a lot of Trekkies amongst this blog's readership. Any suggestions for which Tories are akin to other Star Trek characters.
I want to know where our Seven of Nine is...
