That was the first name that came to my mind, too.

But I'm kinda liking the idea of a CGI Data, perhaps performed by an actor wearing a motion-capture suit?
This idea does seem to hold promise!

It does, but I like it better for holographic characters like The Doctor on Voyager than for Data. Data *is* still supposed to be a material being, and at present there's no "there" there for CGI characters so far as I've seen - something is missing.

Re: If ever a Data recast...

Data doesn't need to be all CG, just to use a body double and have his face replaced with a mid-TNG Brent Spiner's, akin to the young version of Jeff Bridges in Tron: Legacy. That tech isn't good enough to render a human convincingly but it is good enough for a convincing android face.

I'd rather have a new actor than a CGI face. I think it's an interesting idea, but I think you'd lose something in the tech. Maybe it would work with a hologram, that is an interesting idea.

Re: If ever a Data recast...

I kinda like the idea of the gender flip. Would also make the encounter/relatinship with Yar interesting.
