Re: Data/Immortal Coil
As I've said before, I can't quite buy the idea that B-4 was built
those other three prototypes. His consciousness is simply too crude to be the model immediately preceding Lore. That's too great a leap in sophistication for two consecutive prototypes. It seems more likely to me that he was the first such prototype. Perhaps B-1 to B-3 were earlier positronic brains in simpler robotic bodies or no bodies at all, and B-4 was the first one in an android body. Or perhaps it wasn't a number but just the joke, "before," as the script suggested.
