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

This deep into the review thread, I don't think we need to use spoiler boxes anymore. There is a spoiler warning in the thread title, after all. And these subjects have been discussed in the clear earlier in the thread.

It's a downer to lose Soong, as ambiguous as he is. Data finally would get a chance to know his father, but no. His return requires his father's sacrifice. So that's a downer.
But he has his father's memories within him now. That's a heck of a way to get to know someone.

It's a downer for Soong's original replacement body for Data to have been destroyed by the Borg.
Why? His new one is better.

It's also a downer that Data (appears) to have permanently lost his mother. (Though I recognize that the door is left open for her to reappear later. However, the conceit is that we're supposed to belief she's dead-dead-dead [as opposed to just dead-dead].)
Huh? You really, really need to reread the last page of the book.
