So they have talented art thieves in the future...and some objects from individual cultures have found value in the greater intergalactic community. I can buy both.

Reminds me of Dr. No having a painting of Napoleon in his possession that had recently been stolen in the real world.

I think what should have happened was that Data admit that he was going to use the weapon, but was thankful that he was stopped by the transporter since this means Fojo can be brought to justice without having to kill him.
I agree.

I also think they could have just had Data vaporize him. I mean, Riker killed the assassin in that one episode and moved on, why can't Data?

I kind of just find the ending of this episode disturbing. A horrendous death to the person helping Data. In this case I do agree a female character has been sacrificed to further Data's story. I didn't really need that for a valid reason to shoot the kidnapper.

Has it ever been specifically stated that Data is incapable of lying? or his programming prohibits lying to his superiors? His programming was created without superior officers in mind. I've always been under the impression he could lie just as easily as anyone else, and in this circumstance, he made a personal decision to withhold, based on the fact that this was a clearly personal situation, & Data had to grow as a person

It's not that Data is incapable of lying, it's that doing so in this instance seems out of character.

I've just realised that the "Episode of the Week" schedule means we'll be treated to BOBW over Christmas and New Year.

I liked Fajo's guest with the gold gift wrapping ribbon wrapped around his head and went into his nose. He was clearly flirting with Fajo's woman who Fajo "met when she was barely an adult" (creepy). Was the guest intending to hook up with her or her and Fajo? "You are more interesting than Fajo's mannequin".
