    Considering Lore ended up being the bizarro version of Data, maybe Soji is the bizarro version of Dahj? Although based on her short intro at the end of the episode, it doesn't seem that way. If anything she seems even nicer than Dahj.

    This is a dramatic improvement over any episode of DISCO, including "If Memory Serves," my favorite.

    I had minor issues, but nothing that got my panties in a twist. All in all, I was happy to find my self enjoying Star Trek again. I hope the payoff is as good as the setup, but from the way it begins it seems that there is something worth treating here in this series. "The Offspring" is one of the top episodes of TNG, in every way superior to "The Measure Of A Man" IMO, and if any TNG episodes deserves follow-up, it is that one.

    Will Maddox be the big bad? He might, or he might end up being anything besides villain, from antihero, to tragic figure, to victim, to visionary hero.

    The cube cliffhanger was great. Bring on Seven.

    It has a 93/81 on RT right now. I suspect the audience number will actually go up as more people see it. It has several advantages over DISCO, including:

    - better acting as a whole
    - no controversial "retconning" of technology and/or canon
    - no real unintentionally unlikeable characters (so far), whereas DISCO had several polarizing ones right off the bat
    - a more traditionally Trek storyline/theme

    I think this will go a long way to winning over the traditional segment of Trek fans, which DISCO has had some trouble doing.

    In my headcanon, Data swapped out his rusty old head for Lore's after "Descent 2."

    No 4K UHD version on Amazon. That’s a shame.

    I'm waiting for soliton waves to make a comeback! Soliton generators should be standard equipment on every starship by now!

    It's impossible to create a "back up" of Data because there's nothing to store that backup in. Only data's positronic brain can properly hold the deep essence of memories. Data tried with B4, but as "Remembrance" tells us, B4 didn't work properly.

    You could have only used Lore if data scrubbed Lore's memory and deliberately made a back-up using Lore. But since he never did, it's too late.

    In Picard’s vault there were various ships including a D and the stargazer. There was also a shuttle like ship - anyone know what it was?

    Mallrats is a prequel to Clerks.

    Julie Dyer was supposed to be the suiteress on the Mallrats dating game show, but they went to her funeral in Clerks, and the comic Book Clerks the missing Scene.

    I like that the V ridges were much more subdued with Picard's chef than they were in the Berman era. And no bloody bowl cut wigs.

    If that's the direction they go, it's probably Data's consciousness inside Picard somehow. The "dreams" aren't anything of the sort, and he's got a chip in his brain a la Baltar from nuBSG (before Moore et al decided on the angel thing).

    Maybe Data's hanging out inside whatever's left of the Borg implants in his body? I dunno, that's technobabbly enough to work for Star Trek.

    Any chance we will see William Shatner in the show via a holorecording (recorded sometime between Star Trek VI and Generations)? They could use de-aging CGI for Shatner. It doesn't even have to be a full-sized hologram. A miniature hologram would be fine. I just really wanna see Shatner as Kirk for one last time.

    I doubt it but I would like to know why Picard didn’t listen to him when he said never let them promote you.

    I don't know. De-aging CGI still looks very fake to me.
