Re: What happened to Data's emotion chip?
The Starfleet enquiry into the tragedy comes down hard on Picard and his crew, and one of its decisions is that Data's emotion chip causes him to behave erratically, and that if he wants to stay in Starfleet he'll have to agree to its removal.
Haven't read the ATT-series, so that's the first thing I read about the removal of the emotion chip. But... but... WTF? What about an ordinary human's emotions that tend to cause erratical decisions all over the board? Too bad we don't have an emotion chip that we can be ordered to remove.
I'd love to learn more about this because how could Picard and the others agree to this?
