Re: The Most Toys

But then why not simply admit to Riker that he fired the weapon in self-defense, believing that otherwise he and the rest of Fajo's people would remain trapped?

It's not self-defense; it's revenge. During the first two or three seasons of TNG, it seemed pretty clear that Data did in fact have emotions, and that everybody but Data himself realized this. The later "emotion chip" subplot effectively retconned this out of existence.
