    HAFTEL: Captain, are we talking about breaking up a family? Isn't that rather a sentimental attitude about androids?

    PICARD: They're living, sentient beings. Their rights and privileges in our society have been defined. I helped define them.

    HAFTEL: Yes, Captain, and I am more than willing to acknowledge that. What you must acknowledge is that Lal may be a technological step forward in the development of artificial intelligence.

    HAFTEL: Yes, and work like this demands to be done with controlled procedures.

    HAFTEL: An aberration. What have you done about this?

    DATA: I have maintained records on positronic matrix activity, behavioral norms, and all verbal patterns. I have seen no evidence of other aberrations.

    HAFTEL: But as a good father, don't you think it would be better, especially in light of this new aberration, if Lal were close to people trained in diagnostic and evaluative procedures?

    DATA: I am programmed with the procedures you mention, sir. And in any meaningful evaluation of Lal, you would require a model for a basis of comparison. I am the only model available, Admiral.
