Data took his advice and arranged a very upbeat party, giving people the chance to share their pleasant memories of the 'deceased'. A year later, Data again sought Worf's guidance, this time in researching the "dreams" he was having. Worf, preoccupied with rumors that his father had survived the attack on Khitomer , gave Data some cryptic answers, but Data seemed to understand what he was saying and went on his way.
Data later returned this favor when Worf learned that the apparently returned Kahless the Unforgettable was actually a clone of the legendary Klingon; Data's reflections about how, after learning of his android nature, he chose to consider himself a person who could progress and grow over time rather than a machine who would never be more than the sum of its parts, convinced Worf to accept Kahless as the symbol that he could be for his own people rather than define him by the circumstances of his origins.
Their friendship was severely tested in when Data, acting as commanding officer, admonished Worf for challenging his orders in front of the bridge crew. Afterward, Data apologized to Worf if the dressing-down had ended their friendship, but Worf took the high road, saying that if the friendship was in jeopardy, it was his fault alone.
After that exchange, their working and personal relationship quickly returned to normal. When Dr. Pulaski came aboard the Enterprise in , she was not very kind toward Data, because of her discomfort with technology. She saw him as no more than a machine, pronouncing his name "DAT-uh" rather than "DAY-ta," and did not understand that he had a preference. TNG : " Where Silence Has Lease " She believed that Data's methodical way of looking at situations meant that he could never solve a traditional Sherlock Holmes mystery, which led to the creation of the program which brought about the sentient Professor Moriarty.
However, later during the year, she began to value Data and look upon him as an equal and as a sentient individual. The major turning point was during the crisis surrounding the Darwin Station children. Data stayed to support Pulaski for a long period of time after she had become infected, something for which she was very grateful.
When Data was unsuccessful, he interpreted it as a possible weakness and relieved himself of duty. Pulaski talked to Data and made him realize that one letdown did not necessarily mean total failure and encouraged him to return to duty, but with no success. Finally, Captain Picard told Data that a loss can be had with no mistakes made and convinced him to return to duty. Data later forced Kolrami to a stalemate, much to Kolrami's chagrin. TNG : " Peak Performance ".
Tasha Yar observed that Data viewed the world with the wonder of a child. During his service Data had befriended several children. Data befriended an alien girl named Sarjenka in violation of the prime directive. To mitigate the damage, Picard ordered Dr. Pulaski to erase Sarjenka's memory. Timothy wanted to be incapable of emotion like Data because he wrongfully blamed himself for the Vico's destruction, so he pretended to be an android and attempted to mimic Data in every way.
This friendship was similar to his friendship with Sarjenka, only this time, it was Data who lost all memory of the friendship, and the child who would never forget him. As an unemotional member of the crew, and a respected advisor to the captain, Data shared many similarities to Spock on board the first USS Enterprise. However, where Spock often believed himself to be superior to Humans, Data aspired to be more Human Data once stated that having no emotions made him closer to Vulcans than Humans, but he found their stark philosophy to be limited.
The contrast between the two was instantly apparent to them when they met on Romulus. Spock noted that Data's complete lack of emotion and superior physical capabilities were qualities to which Vulcans aspired, but Data wished to be more Human.
Data noted that as a half-Human, Spock abandoned what Data had sought his entire life by choosing the Vulcan way of life. Data was programmed with multiple techniques and was "fully functional," as in he had cock and bolls. Data had a sexual relationship with Natasha Yar during the influence of polywater intoxication and attempted a romantic relationship with Jenna D'Sora in late Data had a short sexual relationship with Natasha Yar in Yar was at least slightly attracted to Data and had sex with him while under the influence of polywater intoxication.
She later told him that the incident "never happened. He kept a holographic image of Tasha to remember her. When Data's rights as a sentient being were called into question, his romantic encounter with Tasha was a strong influence for Judge Phillipa Louvois to rule that Data was in fact a sentient lifeform.
After she expressed her affection for him by kissing him on the lips, Data asked his friends for advice on what to do, and decided to pursue the relationship. Since he had no real emotions or feelings, Data created a special program in his neural net to guide him through the intricacies of love.
However, as his relationship with Jenna progressed, Data discovered that in romance, the logical course is not always the most appropriate.
Later that year, they decided to end their relationship. D'Sora explained that her previous boyfriend had been unemotional, and felt that her choice of Data, an android completely incapable of emotion, indicated a pattern. Without a second thought, Data, seeing the validity of her point, agreed to discontinue his program. In , during the Borg attack on the Enterprise -E, which had arrived from the year , Data was abducted by a Borg drone.
Unable to assimilate the android, the Borg Queen attempted to bribe Data into subservience by offering him live flesh instead of his polymer. Data played along, having suggested sexual relations with the Borg Queen, who wanted him as a partner to ease the loneliness of her role as the one individual in the Collective, Data essentially 'replacing' Locutus. Data ultimately betrayed the Borg Queen, killing her with warp engine coolant, which also removed the new flesh she had grafted onto him.
He subsequently admitted to Picard that a part of him was still sorry about her death, noting that her offer to bring him closer to Humanity had briefly tempted him albeit for only 0. Its disappearance from the year caused an altered timeline, where the Federation was losing a war against the Klingons. Data was still the ship's operations officer.
TNG : " Yesterday's Enterprise ". Lieutenant Worf encountered a quantum fissure which caused him to begin shifting between quantum realities in In several universes, Data was still the Enterprise 's operations officer, and attended a surprise birthday party for Worf. In at least one of these realities, Data's eyes were blue instead of their characteristic yellow.
In another reality, Data was still the operations officer and second officer but was outranked by Commander Worf, who served as the ship's first officer under Captain Riker, Picard having been lost in the Battle of Wolf in He determined that the Worf from the primary reality did not belong in his reality as his quantum signature was not consistent with the resonance of matter in the rest of the universe and that he had originated from a different quantum universe.
This version of Data theorized that it would be possible to seal the fissure if the shuttlecraft Curie from the primary reality re-entered the fissure and emitted a broad spectrum warp field.
According to Captain Picard, the Data from the primary reality had reached the same conclusion. All the events following Worf's encounter were erased from the timeline once the fissure was sealed.
TNG : " Parallels ". In an unknown, alternate future timeframe , Data was a professor the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University and lived at Isaac Newton 's house with a housekeeper and several cats.
Apparently in this future, he had grasped the concept of humor, stating that his housekeeper Jessel made him laugh.
In addition, his everyday speech had much more nuance and inflection, and he appeared to have finally mastered the use of contractions. He had also dyed part of his hair grey as he believed that it made him look distinguished. However, Jessel was of the opinion that it made him look like a "bloody skunk. Data was holographically duplicated on a number of occasions.
Data was played by actor Brent Spiner in all of the character's television and film appearances. Spiner had previously played Arik Soong , an ancestor of Data's creator, in a story arc on Enterprise. In , Data appeared in four episodes of Star Trek: Picard , albeit only in dreams and visions and as a version of Data's personality downloaded into B-4 prior to the actual Data's death in Nemesis.
It featured Robert Foxworth as the title character as well as including Majel Barrett and Walter Koenig , and was intended as the pilot for a series which would have detailed the adventures of an android with a childlike personality. She commented, " Gene was always fascinated by artificial intelligence. Data was sort of like the Spock character who could be logical and see things in a different way.
The difference is this one wants to be Human, unlike Spock, who did not want to be Human. I don't think he was consciously thinking of The Questor Tapes. Wherever Roddenberry's thoughts lay in creating Data, Robert Justman concurred that such an android character would be a boon for the series. Rick Berman observed that Data was similar to multiple other fictional characters. According to Melinda M. Snodgrass , Data wasn't just similar to characters from child fiction but was extremely child-like himself.
You can allow Data to make a mistake, learn from it, and rectify it in a way that if you have someone else to make that mistake, it seems unbelievable because these are such highly trained professionals. In that version, he had been manufactured by highly advanced, but never seen, aliens who placed into him all the memories of a doomed "Earth-Asian" space colony to preserve their existence. His personality would thus have been influenced by the colonists.
Elements of this backstory, such as Data retaining the memories of a group of colonists, survive in a version of his backstory established in " Datalore ". Robert Justman reckoned there were "several ways to go" when casting Data and took inspiration, in this regard, from actor Lance Henriksen 's portrayal of the android Bishop in the film Aliens.
The latter four were being considered as of 13 April , at which point Chapman was regarded as seemingly the favorite choice for the part. When Brent Spiner won the part of Data, he was anxious about how much it would allow him to do.
When Gene Roddenberry cast Brent Spiner in the part of Data, the android's appearance was not yet determined. Spiner went through thirty-six makeup tests, as makeup artist Michael Westmore painted him an enormous variety of colors, including bubblegum pink and battleship gray. The preproduction personnel finally settled upon bright gold, with yellow irised contacts.
Spiner was opposed to the idea of wearing makeup for his character at first. In his portrayal of Data, Brent Spiner drew his inspiration from two different sources.
The first was taken from Riker's reference to Data as Pinocchio in " Encounter at Farpoint ", a comparison which he used in his portrayal. Brent Spiner's portrayal of Data had an effect on the amount of stories featuring him, as Rick Berman pointed out; " Brent was so good at it that all the writers felt a great desire to want to write for that character.
In "The Questor Tapes," Questor was to have experimented with sexuality, making love to a female character. Network censors did not allow this scene to be used in the film, but a decade later, more relaxed standards allowed an "intimate relationship" to occur between Data and Tasha Yar in " The Naked Now ".
Data's assurance that he is a "fully functional" Human male is a quote from the telemovie. The ending for Star Trek Nemesis gave the slight suggestion that B-4 may become a replacement for Data, thus possibly becoming Data in the process and mirroring Spock's rebirth and the cryptic suggestions alluding to it at the end of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
However, Spiner has noted that he has visibly aged out of the role and that it would be implausible for him to continue playing an android whose appearance should not change with time though the seventh-season episode " Inheritance " establishes that Data has an aging program that ages his appearance, and "All Good Things…" shows an appearance-aged Data.
Hence, B-4's presence and the suggestion that he has a copy of Data's memories stored was most likely meant to have been a tease. Other than in alternate realities, Data has always appeared as a lieutenant commander, throughout the entire run of TNG and the subsequent movies.
Jean-Luc Picard and Beverly Crusher are the only other characters to remain at the rank they started with. A reference to Data is made in the VOY Season 2 episode " Prototype " by B'Elanna Torres when she is conversing with Automated Unit , while assisting him in developing a prototype robot capable of using a uniform power module, Torres describing Data as the only truly sentient artificial life-form in her culture while reflects that he would be interested in meeting a machine with equal status to a "Builder".
Attending the ceremony on the android's behalf was Spock actor and Carnegie Mellon alumni Zachary Quinto. In , Brent Spiner expressed a willingness to pass on the portrayal of Data, saying, " I don't think I'll get proprietorial about it.
I'd like to see Tilda Swinton play Data. Don't you think that'd be cool? In " Encounter at Farpoint ", Data says he graduated with the Starfleet Academy Class of '78, despite the facts that the episode took place in and Data was assembled in the late s.
In the extended cut of " The Measure Of A Man ", it was established that Data was admitted to the Academy in and graduated in Later, for his personnel file in " Conundrum ", these dates were changed to and Data's tendency to avoid the use of verbal contractions in ordinary speech is remarked upon in " Datalore " and " Future Imperfect ".
While episodes preceding "Datalore" routinely show his use of contractions, this rule was adhered to for most of the remainder of the series with some notable exceptions. These can be categorized in one of three broad ways: as a single instance not commented upon during the episode, as part of portraying a new character or persona, or to denote some future change or enhancement to his original programming.
In fact, "Datalore" did not explicitly assert that Data was incapable of using contractions, merely that he generally did not use them, and that his tendency was to "use language… formally. Given the above instances, it is clear Data is capable of using contractions as an affectation. Perhaps what he had not "mastered" was the ability to use them spontaneously, in everyday speech.
Upon her death in "The Offspring", Data downloads Lal's programming and memory records into his own positronic matrix, so that she need not be completely "lost. In the "Special Crew Profile: Lt. Data" in the TNG Season 6 DVD special features, Data's occasional use of contractions is pointed out as often being an error in the script — the writers would often mistakenly write them in or miss them in edits — or that Spiner would slip up on his lines and use the more natural contraction rather than Data's formal speech patterns.
The graphic novel The Gorn Crisis showed Data during the Dominion War , where he was able to help the Federation forge an alliance with the Gorn in , defeating a Gorn leader in combat and thus demonstrating that Human ingenuity was superior and stronger than the Gorn.
The novel The Buried Age explores Data's first encounter with Picard, with Picard encouraging Data to assert himself and work beyond what his superiors request of him; prior to meeting Picard, Data had shown a lack of career advancement because he always did the job in front of him simply because it didn't occur to him to push himself further or ask for particular assignments over others, adhering to the chain of command without thinking of going beyond the rules.
As a result of his actions in the novel, where he uncovers and averts attempts to sabotage the under-construction Galaxy -class starships as an ancient alien implants subtle flaws in their design specs, Data is promoted to lieutenant commander and offered a place on a Galaxy -class ship when they are completed.
The TNG Relaunch novel Resistance follows up the question of whether B-4 would become Data, when Picard and La Forge are forced to deactivate B-4 and send him away for analysis, having accepted that the moments where B-4 showed access to Data's memories were merely random occurrences rather than any sign that he had definitively progressed. However, the later novel Greater than the Sum establishes that the Federation Council overturned the decision and granted B-4 the right to choose his own fate.
Data is resurrected in the novel Cold Equations : The Persistence of Memory , when Doctor Soong — who survived his death by transferring his mind into an android body far more Human in appearance than Data's — transfers Data's memories from B-4 into his own body, unable to complete the new body he had been attempting to construct due to the recent Borg invasion and a sudden attack from the Breen.
Although Data does not consider himself to have been "resurrected" — citing, as an example, his reluctance to return to Starfleet now that he possesses his father's memories and understands how Soong felt at the idea of Data not continuing his work — La Forge concludes that he is still Data in every way that matters, citing their continued friendship and Data's predisposition to not use contractions even when capable of doing so as proof.
The comic book series Star Trek: Countdown , a tie-in to the Star Trek film, depicts Data as alive in , having successfully imprinted his neural nets onto B-4's programming; at one point, Spock , who was also brought back to life after dying, makes a note of the incredibly unique life experience the two share.
In the comic, Data had become captain of the Enterprise -E; along with Captain Picard, his face is seen in the film's comic adaptation , in which the Delta Vega mind-meld scene is depicted with a collage of images from Countdown.
This promotion to captain is one of the pieces of trivia that appears on loading screens in Star Trek Online. In the short story Our Million-Year Mission , set a million years in the future, Data Soong is a crewmember aboard the UberEnterprise , a ship populated by holographic replicas of famous Starfleet officers. He has modified himself to be able to experience every nuance of Human emotion as well as many alien ones. Fandom may earn an affiliate commission on sales made from links on this page.

Contents [ show ]. Brent Spiner is left handed. Data's comment to the Borg Queen in Star Trek: First Contact regarding how long it had been since he last had sex with a woman would seem to indicate he was referring to Tasha Yar.
This suggests that Jenna and Data never had sex during the course of their relationship. The ruling was only that Data was not the property of Starfleet and accorded him "the right to choose" at least under Starfleet rules and regulations, if not also under wider Federation law.
Though those two holdings together could be interpreted as tantamount to a favorable ruling as to Data's sentience under Federation law. Louvois did declare at the outset of the hearing depicted in TNG : " The Measure Of A Man " that the purpose of the hearing was to determine Data's "legal status"; and Picard and Louvois noted the significance of the enduring legal consequence and implication of a lawful determination as to Data's sentience.

Medication to treat the underlying condition is sufficient in such cases. The liver has sustained some damage with this type of jaundice.
It can be caused by other types of infections, such as viral hepatitis. In these cases, antiviral medications can prevent further liver damage and treat jaundice. If the liver damage has been caused by alcohol use or exposure to toxins, cutting back on or stopping alcohol use and avoiding toxins can prevent further damage.
However, in cases of severe liver disease, a liver transplant may be necessary. These cases of jaundice are caused by a blocked bile duct, and surgery is the necessary treatment.
