    Whenever B4's not on screen, all the other characters should be asking, "Where's B4?"

    Liberal utopia. No one works, someone has to pick up the slack. ;)

    The Simpsons were brilliant way back when.

    In a lot of ways Dahj feels like Michael Burnham done right, which is why the reflexive youtubers decided they hated Picard before they even saw it. Brilliant young women with amazing combat skills who's undergoing horrible emotional trauma turning her world upside-down.

    Except the writing - and Isa Briones - sell it 100%.

    Wow that was incredible, I hate that I have to wait a week now for more.

    When I saw that full painting I immediately thought of Lal.

    I mean if Dahj and her sister are based on that painting they must also be based on Lal, right? There is no other reason for Data to name one of his paintings Daughter if it wasn't about Lal?

    I think Martin-Green did the best she could wading through a lot of shitty material.

    :guffaw::guffaw::guffaw:

    Plus, it's far easier to reprogram a hologram than to reset an entire being like Data (who I'm sure didn't have a reset button installed like C3PO ;) )

    Still, that's a valid question and I'd love a flashback that showed him and Admiral Janeway teaming up to have a go at the rest of top brass if some harm came to him. I hear Kate Mulgrew has free time not filming OItNB and all :p

    If somebody who cares for him deeply is in the show, and it directly relates to the main theme, it's not pointless at all.

    That might be one of the best tributes that both Data in-universe and the producers of the franchise could give Lal. His painting in her memory and honor resulted in the creation of two Synths, both of which will play a critical role in the newest series.

    I wonder if the Quantum bits are actually from Lal and not Data? Maddox figured out how to stabilize the positronic brain.

    It's notably more sentimental than Discovery. But i didn't find that to much of a distraction or a detraction.

    Do you suppose that the Daystrom Institute was ordered by Starfleet to dismantle B4 so he couldn't cause trouble?

    I'm curious of what you thought of the episode considering you spoiled yourself of so much of it!!

    So....?

    (forgive me if you already answered this, but this thread is like a runaway train at this point.)

    Not the first thing I would think of, but there will always be fanfic-ers who default to that, no matter the era in question. The popular fanfic-ers on this board are a little more sophisticated than that. And the ones on AO3 seem more interested in romance, so...

    Also, fuck Section 31. Not because of "Gene's Vision" or whatever, but because it's almost always done poorly. I'd rather pretend it doesn't even exist.

    I imagine the order likely had to come from the Federation Council.

    Like how to spend a notable section of your running time wallowing in sentimentality? Considering how many people complained about the messages left at the end of Disco season 2, I can't imagine that's the lesson learned here.
