You guys seem to be going out of your way to come up with reasons why Data had no choice to be a murderer.
No, you're coming up with any kind of nonsense to make it look like Data is a murderer, when in fact you should probably just accept that since Data isn't a casual murderer there is probably some explanation that is why he did what he did & found himself in a position of having no choice. It's a tv show. Suspend disbelief & get over it. I'm through humoring your completely unfounded fantasies
