Re: Data and Odo

Data would leave Odo alone. They'd get along fabulously.

If they can get past Data's speech about how Odo mimicks the very thing that he seeks.

Re: Data and Odo

I wonder what Odo's reaction would be if Data started talking in the changeling's voice.

I'd rather see Data being friends with the EMH...

I could see Data and the EMH doing a duet.

Picard and Janeway would order Worf and Tuvok to shoot them on the spot if they felt trapped in ten forward with those two doing a duet.

Data could tell Odo about the time he attempted to kill Kivas Fajo
But did he, T'Girl?

The final act, in which Fajo kills Varria for betraying him, is a somewhat shocking turn of events. Data's response poses one of those intriguing questions that the story asks the audience to decide for themselves: Did Data intend to shoot and kill Fajo before he was beamed out? I believe he did, simply because the logic of the situation would permit him to take deadly action, and, in Data's words, he "cannot allow this to continue." But then why would Data lie about having pulled the trigger?

Re: Data and Odo

Data would be curious about Odo and ask him a few questions about what it's like to be a Changeling. Then Odo would shapeshift himself to look like Data, and in Data's voice say something like "I can look like anything I want, but that doesn't change who I am. It's a conundrum I face every day I exist, but at least I know my purpose. Do you know yours?" Data would be left even more puzzled than before he came, and Odo would have the satisfaction of having done it.

Odo very rarely shapeshifted just to prove a point. It stemmed from Dukat and all the other Cardassians gawking at him over the infamous Cardassian Neck Trick.

Re: Data and Odo

Also, Odo wouldn't be able to mimic Data's appearance. The whole point is that because he lacks skill at shapeshifting he can't really turn into other people. His appearance is suppose to be the closest he can get to humanoid form, although admittedly that fact is muddled once the other Founders show up and they always go around looking similar to Odo. Note that throughout DS9 the only character he impersonates is the Female Changeling.

But apparently the other rats aren't convinced!
