"Data's Day" Line-by-Line

We've recently concluded our "Tomorrow Is Yesterday" line-by-line over in the TOS forum. Since that thread got closed before anyone could actually open a new one, I though I might do us all a favor and get the new game started. I hope CoveTom won't mind.

After each completed thread, CoveTom is randomly picking someone who participated to choose the next episode we do. The lucky winner this time around was Vanyel! And Vanyel selected "Data's Day" to be our next line-by-line conquest! So, start your calculations for the slingshot around the sun, avoid black stars and slip on something that the military will approve of!

For any unfamiliar with our "game," you are asked to post only a single line (defined as one character speaking without interruption by another character) per message. You can post as often as you like, but someone else must post a line in between your posts.

As before, at the conclusion of this thread, CoveTom will pick someone at random from among all the participants to choose the next episode we do.

Second Officer's personal Log, Stardate 44390.1. Record entry for transmission to Commander Bruce Maddox, Cybernetics Division, Daystrom Institute. Dear Commander Maddox,

DATA [OC]: In reference to your most recent letter, I agree that your study lacks sufficient primary source information on my programming and operation. Therefore, in response to your request, this correspondence will include a complete record of my activities during a normal day, with particular emphasis on my perceptions of friendship.

DATA: Commander Riker, you are fifteen minutes early.

RIKER: Well, it's a very special day. I thought the father of the bride would enjoy being relieved early on the wedding day.

Re: "Data's Day" Line-by-Line
DATA: All systems normal, sir. Sickbay reports that Lieutenant Juarez went into labor at zero four hundred hours. We remain at station awaiting the arrival of Starship Zhukov and guest quarters have been prepared for Ambassador T'Pel.

Re: "Data's Day" Line-by-Line
DATA (OC): Initially, Commander Maddox, I found it difficult to maintain friendships, since human emotions are often puzzling to me.

DATA [OC]: Eventually, I developed a programme enabling me to predict human emotional responses to specific actions.
