Re: Was What Happened to Lore legal? Opinions, please!

I thought Picard's threat to Data was legitimate, and on the level. Indeed, since Data is the only Soong-type android in Starfleet, why would Starfleet bother to disassemble him to find out what was wrong with him, if they could not put him back together again? If disassembly would mean Data would be unrecoverable, what would have been the POINT of finding out what was wrong?

IMHO, the very fact that Picard even said that to Data (Picard is not the type to make empty or baseless threats), proves that the disassembly need not have been fatal.
