Its interacting with humanoids. The shape makes sense.
Yeah and eventually they could go and just assimilate any biological aspect or technological aspect of any species they encounter into themselves...oh...wait...
That, plus... ummm... maybe to give them some sense enough of a human existence as to be sympathetic to us, in so much that they are hopefully less inclined to destroy us all.
Seemed to be the angle Soong himself was more preoccupied with, after a few missteps of his own. I suppose Maddox could've worked a little harder on that aspect, given the result.
We can make all kinds of machines, including artificially intelligent ones. The point of making ones that are as close to human as possible, like Soong's, is to hopefully have them understand what it's like to be us
The espionage potential alone is mind-boggling.
Sex. That is it. Clearly it is just flesh over an advanced body. The question now is, apart from being programmed in multiple techniques, can they reproduce sexually?
It also creates a greater comfort for the people interacting with them. Otherwise the EMH would just be the computer.
Well, not entirely. There'd still have to be some mechanism by which medical treatment is administered, & since it happens in a humanoid environment, & most of the tools for which to do so are made for humanoids to use, it makes sense to have a humanoid EMH filling in for live medical practitioners.
What does God need with a human body?
More like The Matrix.
(Although it's not far off. Both films had the same fight choreographer: Yuen Woo Ping.)
Paging RevdKathy ...
You’d have to ask God.
That’s why everything is made.
Picard said something about her body being made out of flesh and blood, but it is definitely not really human. She made that really huge jump up the stairs. No human can do that.
Poor Jean-luc was probably like 'why didn't she just carry me and do that instead of making me climb those stairs, merde!'
Also I just assumed Dahj had synthetic flesh and organs and an Android skeleton.
If the android is interacting with humanoids, using humanoid tools and such the shape of an android follows logic.
I think it's just because that's what Data had wanted for himself, so Bruce Maddox (and possibly Data) created a daughter who was able to be what he spent his whole life trying to achieve.
The reason why any mad scientist does something. Because they can! If you have the knowledge then why have it unless your going to see just how far you can go with it!
Like Ian Malcolm once said, they were 'so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should'
Soong wasn't concerned with creating an android, he was concerned with creating a mind, and arguably, a life. The Data-style chassis was secondary and probably trivial for the Federation to manufacture. The biological synths appear to be even closer to a human mind than we saw Data to be in some ways.
The whole point of the utopian Federation is to do the could without worrying about the should.
