Re: Complete Guide to Data's Contractions

By the way, does anyone else think it's not a coincidence that when Brent Spiner first appears on camera as Arik Soong in ENT: "Borderland," his first spoken word is a contraction ("I'm busy")? It's kinda like they're saying "No, folks, this ain't Data!"

Noonien Soong's first word is also a contraction. ("You're right on time.")
