Given the way Galaxy-class ships had their warp cores explode when they were looked at funny, are you sure we didn't see a warp core uprising?

Re: El Aurian androids?

I haven't seen What Are Little Girls Made Of so can't comment on the Exo III androids, but if you judge TNG as the source of truth Soong type androids are unique in their sentience because the 'Positronic brain' is filled with magic soul juice.

And if you judge Voyager as a source of truth the EMH did not begin the series sapient but became sapient when he 'Expanded beyond his original programming'.

^I never said the EMH was sapient to begin with. "Until he came along" is a figure of speech.

One of them once called you "ugly bag of mostly water" or "carbon life-form"?
