PICARD: Commander Data, at your convenience, I would like to talk to you in my Ready room. Counsellor?

[Corridor]

PICARD: I insist we do whatever we can to discourage the perception of this new android as a child. It is not a child. It is an invention, albeit an extraordinary one.

Re: "The Offspring" Line-by-Line

TROI: Why should biology rather than technology determine whether it is a child? Data has created an offspring. A new life out of his own being. To me, that suggests a child. If he wishes to call Lal his child, then who are we to argue?

Picard: Well, if he must, but I fail to understand how a 5 foot android with heuristic learning systems and the strength of 10 men can be called a child.

PICARD: What you have done will have serious ramifications. I am truly dismayed that you told no one of what you were doing.

Data: I am sorry, Captain. I did not anticipate your objections. Do you wish me to deactivate Lal?

PICARD: It's a life, Data. It can't be activated and deactivated simply. This is a most stupendous undertaking. Have you any idea what will happen when Starfleet learns about this?

DATA: To prepare, I have scanned all available literature on parenting. There seems to be much confusion on this issue. One traditional doctrine insists, spare the rod and spoil the child, suggesting a punitive approach. While another more liberal attitude would allow the child enormous freedom.
