^I always thought they would download Data's personality into B4 and make him into a new Data. One never knows?

You've not read "Countdown", the TNG comic prequel to JJ's movie?

Aw, so I take that to mean that Cold Equations is going to eliminate Countdown from novelverse continuity? I rather liked that story...

I don't think Data would have uploaded his memories and such into B-4 if he believed they would overwrite B-4's own programming and essentially kill him.

"Countdown" was a comic mini-series. It's not necessarily in future novel continuity.

Maybe the programming blended (rather like the recent blending of my two laptops' memories) and the "Countdown" Captain Data is the B-4 that happily embraced the gradual integration of Data memories?

Maybe his full name is Captain B-4 Data? Like, he adopted "Data" as a family name? (shrug)

B-4 was merely his designation. (The Voyager's EMH ended up calling himself "Joe".)

Tuvix took his name from a combination of the two crewmen who were blended into one.

Any ideas or bets on what that might be/
The human Reaper that Commander Shepard fought in 2185. Should have checked to make sure it was actually dead!

Say, wasn't Lore being stored in a box in Data's room on the E-D? Surprised no one has done anything with that.

Covered by "Immortal Coil", IIRC.
