Can Data pinch a loaf?

Just curious as to the general feeling on this. Obviously he can eat and drink, we've seen such examples such as in Generations when he drinks the brew Guinan hands over. So...what happened to it once consumed?

I think Data's internal machinery takes any organic material he ingests and compiles it into tasty little cupcakes and fruit pies that can be retrieved – to the delight of his fellow crewmates – from a little door in his tummy!

What a pleasantly romanticized notion!

I say no, not a loaf per se, but I think he may pass gas, smelling something like slightly burned plastic. Makes it real hard for him to blame someone else.

Re: Can Data pinch a loaf?

LOL! Think about it; it has to come out SOMEHOW! Maybe not the way it does in people, since he has no intestines, but there's no way food and drink can just sit inside him forever! LOL

See? Look at CaptainStoner's av! There's the little door for the cupcakes and fruit pies!

You've never encountered a bachelor's refrigerator, have you?

Does Data shit?


Is the Space Pope a bear-sized crocodile who lives in the woods?

Okay. Fair enough. Which springs another question. Do you think Captain Picard has sampled Data's cupcake?

Actually it's a pretty large door. I think he could probably roast a small turkey in there.

ROTFL! Starfleet's first android officer! He calculates infinite numbers, he can jump large distances in a single bound, and he has a built-in rotisserie! ROTFLOL

I wonder if this will turn into a megathread. Seems to have the potential.

I think Picard would have tried one, to be polite, but not finished it. Data's cupcakes, that is. If he makes them. Might have made a nice reward for Wesley, after he'd done all his chores.

Picard isn't a finisher? How sad for Bev.

I dunno. I think Data certainly has the potential for cupcake production, but what of wacky alien foods that might not taste very cupcakish? Andorian Fish Sweat Basted Chicken Fritter cupcakes? In that case I think a toilet loaf is called for.

Or maybe he secretes a kind of paste which he uses to moisturize. It gets dry on a starship, I hear.

No. Like Captain Kirk, Captain Picard does not "sample" his crew. Regardless of what various fanfics at AFF might have you believe.
