Re: Biggest "Tear-Jerker" Moments in Trek

I'm glad that Lal and "The Offspring" get mentioned, but I think Haftel plays a good role there. For a chunk of the episode he's at odds with Data and the crew, insistent that Lal be removed in your classical overreaching bureaucratic kind of way. But when Haftel and Data join forces to try and save Lal, and then Haftel reports to the crew trying to explain Data's almost emotional efforts to try and save his daughter, THAT got to me. A nice twist on the overbearing Starfleet authority figure.
