I've said it before and I'll say it again. Data is TOO NOBLE to steal his brother's life from him!

There is more than one way to resurrect an android.

Data didn't intend to steal B-4's life. He was trying to re-write B-4's neural pathways so he wouldn't be a dunderhead.

I just think it's an obvious solution to the Data thing, if they had been a little more creative with it. Like having the Data consciousness possess B-4 into making a more advanced android body to house the Data consciousness (bonus element of possibly having another actor take over the role?).

Of course, none of this would actually be necessary if they had written Data like the intelligent, superfast computer AI, that he was originally created as in Nemesis in the first place.

It just seems to me that people have become lazy in coming up with original ideas, and solutions the these kind of problems.

Apparently only Soongh new the trick to building the positronic neural net that allowed Data and Lore and B-4 to exist, since Data's own attempts failed with Lal.

The secret could have ben "locked" away in Data's neural memory until a proper level of development had been reached, as in when he found that he could dream. Could have even been locled away in B-4's memory and Data's addition to B-4's neural building could have trigered the same.

Just a thought.

PS: I thought that Lal failed because of some overload in her emotional development...or was that something else from TOS? An android Kirk fell in love with?

I just think they could have been more creative about it. I mean it's presented as the B-4/Data thing very obviously what is going to happen.

I say it's more fun to say, "okay this is what you thought was going to happen" but, surprise this is what actually did happen. Otherwise they are just joining the dots for us and there's no fun in that.

You could also say why did they need to resurrect Data in a comic for a film in which he's not going to appear. Data's death in Nemesis was so stupid anyway, why bother?

You are confusing TNG: Offspring, with TOS: What are little Girls Made of.

One thing to learn from this article: Blue text on blue background is difficult to read!

Otherwise, cool.
