Man they always seem to find data's head in the darndest places, don't they.
I don't think this idea will go over well. I also don't think you'll ever see any tng characters in the jjverse. But if they did, it would probably be data since hes so popular and iconic. It would be even weirder seeing someone else play data than seeing someone else play the tos crew, though. I guess because data wouldn't have the age difference explanation to hand wave it.
