Re: Another Data question....

Well, if Starfleet isn't going to have a particular use for the androids they create, it would seem kind of pointless for them to throw tons of resources into creating thousands of them. They would just sort of be doing it for fun at that point.

And they would still have to address the implications of literally creating a new race, and what the creators' obligations and responsibilities are to that race. They would be jumping into a moral quagmire for no real purpose.
