    While I know Data can't be easily rebuilt because of dramatic weight reasons, I find it very hard to see how in the 23rd century Pike and his friends can easily replicate an extremely advanced exoskeletal spacesuit, yet they can't even replicate Data in the 24th. Dr. Soong surely would have left blueprints on how to replicate his physical components and how to back up his mental components.

    If Soong had left any instructions/blueprints for anybody to find, then there wouldn't have been any reason for Maddox & Star Fleet to have wanted to disassemble Data in "The Measure of a Man".
    So that's highly unlikely.

    Oh, so that's what that Picard centered Short Trek will be about...
    Maddox: Told you so.
    Picard: GRRR.... (punches out Maddox)

    If They really wanted to go that route They wouldn't have created B4.

    Just in case anybody hasn't noticed yet, the answer to this threads opening premise is a resounding YES!

    It was a recurring element of the show that there wasn’t one. Even Data couldn’t successfully make another android given his daughter’s positronic brain began to fail. Data was unique and unreproducible.

    Data doesn’t need to e rebuilt, necessarily. Taking into account that Spiner said the disassembled android in the trailer is b4, it could be something like Data’s memory core being downloaded into a holoprojector, so that his hologram is switched on when Picard wants to talk to him. (Almost like a ST version of Yoda’s ghost?)

    Since we know the story starts in France and Picard goes back into space, maybe that last scene of the trailer is him leaving the Data-gram behind or something.

    I think they said Data is in the season multiple times.

    Chekhov's gun, you don't show "Data's" body (or B4, or Lore, or whoever body's it was) and then show that thing talking at end of trailer and have it be something else entirely. Whoever body's it was in the beginning of trailer, that's the same "person" talking to Picard at end of the trailer.

    Spiner said it was B4's body. It also matches the prop they used for Nemesis.

    Probably in the same place. Or somewhere more secure.

    I'm really curious how they'll bring Data back after watching the Picard trailer several times.

    He's probably a hologram.
