Because we all have them. How is Glinn Dygan's name pronounced? Die-gan? Dee-gan? D'gan? Over the course of one book he managed to become one of my favourite characters, so I'm curious. And, a mild Cold Equations spoiler: Spoiler: Shakti Does Shakti count as Soong's daughter/Data's sister? He claims to have programmed her (and she clearly has a Data-level personality), but he never ascribes a familial relationship. Is there a technical reason (she's not a positronic-net-based life-form, doesn't have self-determination, etc), or is it formism (she's a ship, not a "person") or some vestigial unconscious sexism (he wouldn't be the first father to prioritize his sons over his daughters, though I'd expect better from Data)?
