Not really. Data by his own admission was only tempted for a second. Really the whole self-destruct/firing thing was just him deciding to screw with both Picard and the Queen's minds for whatever reason.
0.68 seconds, but that is an eternity for an android.

Data needed to distract the Queen before attempting to smash the coolant tanks.
Yeah I didn't remember the exact number.

I mean yeah, so much distraction is needed to smash that. Doesn't that strike anyone else as a major design flaw? I mean some bumbling oaf like Barclay could be walking through engineering carrying some big part, trip, fall, smash the tank accidentally and kill everyone.
