I hate the 'bad writing' argument. It did happen. Why Data acted that way is the question.
The episode is suppose to make you question what you would do if you had been in Data's place. If your kidnapper announced that he would kill others if you didn't do what he told you after already killing someone, what would you do?
Not trust the kidnapper to kill the others anyway (even if I followed his instructions), that's what.

Soong didn't create Data to be some kind of killing machine. Data certainly could be dangerous with his his enhanced abilities as shown by Lore, but that doesn't mean he never misses with a phaser or can kill a room full of people in seconds.

Data can move his fingers and arms very quickly, but he can only run at normal speeds.
Data can move pretty fast even over rough terrain. But based upon what we know about the Borg, I don't think that they can move faster than you or I. - Geordi to Riker Decent Part 1.

But that doesn't necessarily follow that it means faster than a Human. There are some people who can move at incredible speeds over all sorts of terrain. But I imagine the Borg, being weighed down with implants and the like, would have a great deal more difficulty. We've never seen a drone running, after all.

Re: Data's high-speed heroics

There's no way a human is going to run as fast as Data.

Data is faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and he can leap tall buildings in a single bound.

He is also fully functional and programmed in multiple techniques.

So there.
