Re: TNG: The Persistence of Memory by David Mack Review Thread (Spoile

I'm somewhere in the neighborhood of half done. I wanted to take a moment to thank David Mack for putting the whole "emotions" thing in proper perspective. Ages ago when I was watching The Most Toys and I heard the palpable sorrow in Data's voice as he made the very logical decision to use lethal force against Kivas Fajo the man who had kidnapped him and murdered the woman who was helping him to escape, I came to the realization that Data did indeed have emotions. But they were android emotions and therefore of a sort that while not completely dissimilar from the emotions of organic beings, were not identical. It pleased me no end to have my intuitive understanding so perfectly enunciated by Mr. Mack through the person of Noonien Soong.
