Re: I would have liked more episodes with Lore

Maybe this would be a different thread, but it involves Lore.

Data is very useful and helpful, and in Measure of a Man they want to rip him apart to make more. They prove that they can't he owns himself. While that would mean there are rights of due process, why don't they use Lore for their dissassembled android? I think every starship could use a Data.

Spock must have done a Vulcan memory wipe to make everybody forget Roger Korby had found an android factory.

Re: I would have liked more episodes with Lore

Lore could have been turned into a more interesting villain but he never really was an interesting villain. Everything he did seemed more like evil for the sake of evil. For him to be a good villain he would have needed to have more long term goals that allowed his goals to align with the protagonists once in a while, so they could have a few plots where they are forced to work together briefly.

That Data and the gang decided to deactivate end disassemble Lore was kind of assholy, after Data and Lal being determineted lifeforms and all.

In other words, Lore was summary executed. No trial, no jury. Way to go, heroes.

Don't forget Harry Mudd's Androids R Us.

And the one that Sargon was building.

Re: I would have liked more episodes with Lore

The first episode was more than enough. I don't understand the appeal.

Re: I would have liked more episodes with Lore

Bringing Lore into Nemesis would've been a pretty mind-blowing twist, and would've partially explained Data's somewhat uncharacteristic behavior throughout the films ("to hell with our orders" and so on).I always thought the character was a solid villain. I never realized there were people who didn't think so until I started discussing Star Trek online.

Are you saying that Lore wasn't resposible for his own actions and deeds?

Picard most likely did have the legal authority to judge Lore, and declare a sentance.

Re: I would have liked more episodes with Lore

You can overcook a villain though, and that could easily have been done with Lore - less is more (or perhaps, less is 'Lore'. Sorry!).

Having said that, I reckon maybe one or two other appearances wouldn't have gone amiss, if the story drove it. That 'Lore in B4' idea from earlier is gold.
