So I've been re-watching TNG and catching little details I never noticed before (as evidenced by my thread about Spock possibly getting married). I'm currently on season 4 and just noticed Data commanding the computer to initiate an emergency plan in "Clues" and pronouncing 'Z' (as part of the plan name) as "ZED". This is, of course, a pronunciation that is unique to Brits and Canadians. Could this be a 'clue' to Soong's nationality? Since Soong clearly did not have a British accent in his TNG appearances, we can eliminate one of those as his possible nationality! Okay, to be honest, this probably wasn't done intentionally, but I still think it's a neat idea. I just wonder why Spiner, who is not Canadian himself, said the letter like that. Just something to think about.
