I'm currently watching "The Offspring" and was thinking about the question: what makes Data so likeable as a person?
What are your thoughts and reasons for liking Data?
I guess I'm the odd man out as I found Data to be the second most annoying character on TNG -- after Counselor Deanna Troi and her many cries of "I feel great pain/joy/anger/sadness"... etc, usually AFTER it was plainly obvious to everyone else that the being in question had such feelings (IE 'sense great anger' AFTER the 1701-D had been fired on.)
I also found it annoying that some writers would reset Data (IE he'd be confused or say something inappropriate the same way he had in a previous episode, etc. as if he had learned nothing new about human behavior at times.)
