Are the twins given the assignments they seem to have? Certainly they are not random choices like humans make. Dahj is admitted to the Daystrom institute - why? The people who built her (Maddox) don’t need anything from them to build a synth. Soji has a multi year role at the Artifact... why? What’s there that they need? Related: where is the “nest” of AIs - how do the Romulans know it exists? Or know there are synths at all around? My thoughts: What’s at Daystrom - the B4 body. They wanted to rescue it, perhaps repair it / bring it up to specs / rehabilitate the synths by reproducing Data. At the artifact: Romulans discover Soji is a synth first (1-2 weeks before the show starts) and track down her twin on earth. We see it in reverse order. What does the “synth nest” want at the artifact? Not clear to me. Borg tech? Move the damaged Romulans to synth bodies? Rehabbing Borg is similar to rehabbing synths (former enemies now accepted)? Take over the artifact as a home? Theories appreciated.
