"the measure of a man" is just starting on syfy channel (3PM EST Dec 13 2012). Looks like a few episodes in a row. Love this episode as its obviously one of the best ever. Quintessential trek, epitomizing the trek moral structure and pure badassness of Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

Also, bump whenever you're watching or you notice it on TV somewhere.

I always thought the best way to sum up the difference between Picard and Sisko was how they reacted to their Borg encounters. Picard was wounded emotionally, returning home to the family vineyard, even tempted to leave Starfleet and stay on Earth. He wasn't being weak, he was being human. He had his will taken from him. He carried the guilt for everyone killed at Wolf 359. His reaction was understandable. A lot of people would have given up. Picard thought about it, but in the end he overcame it.
Sisko? He went to Utopia Planetia and designed a ship who's sole purpose was to kill Borg. Basically a bunch of guns with engines strapped to them. Then he named it Defiant, so that when the opportunity came to fly it down their throats the Borg would know, and never forget: Don't fuck with The Sisko!
I honestly like them the same. They are just two completely different people.

It's mostly bullshit. The data comes from the Nation Science Foundation's "Science & Education Indicators" meta study. The question in this case came from another study done by survey and it reads like this:

>Does the Earth go around the Sun, or does the Sun go around the Earth?

It seems straight forward, except the survey had about a thousand questions. It's easy to see how someone quickly working through a lengthy questionnaire could confuse two similarly worded statements.

The SEI compares data from different countries. According to it, only two-thirds of people in the EU know the earth revolves around the sun and only 1/3 of Japanese people know electrons are smaller than atoms.

Surveys man, surveys.

Why was Data never promoted beyond lieutenant commander and second officer? He was promoted to lieutenant commander in 2360 and died as a lieutenant commander in 2379. 20 years as a lieutenant commander! Unlike Riker who kept passing on a command of his own ship, Data was never, ever given that option. Was Riker holding Data back by never accepting a command of his own?

I guess that also begs the question as to why Riker was XO and a Commander for so long. He passed up promotion after promotion. By the time he accepted Command of the Titan he would have been far behind his own peers. In modern militaries if you aren't promoted after so long you're cashiered out.

OP why was Data not promoted to Captain? Well....
-For starters, I'm guessing there's the whole issue of the Enterprise not having enough Command positions to support a higher rank for Data. At some point starfleet would demand he's transferred out to another ship and greater responsibilities thus ending his relationship with his friends. Why the change?
-Data is exploring all the aspects of what it is like to be human. The longer he's a middling rank the more he learns about the mature of being a mid-level officer. Keep in mind the instant he's promoted that's it as far as learning about that particular rank goes.
-Assuming the ability to fabricate appropriate replacement parts for those worn or broken then Data is effectively ageless if not immortal (as was demonstrated in the last movie). I can't imagine any sense of 'hurry' or 'rush' on the part of such a being who assuming they are not killed outright has all the time in the universe to advance.

But they were literally being racis against him because he was a mandroid. Until measure of a man his rank is just nominal, he isn't even considered a sentient being with rights, just some starfleet property. After that he gets rights, but still is distrusted. See the reaction of crew members when data takes command in, what was it, Reunification? Some klingon episode? The one where data uses the tachyon grid to expose the romulan ships.

If it wasn't for that he would have been promoted sooner.

Main riker is the beta riker, just like that science officer picard who didn't get stabbed by the nausicaan was beta picard. The ALPHA riker is Thomas Riker, the transporter clone.

This. I always thought of early season data as basically an emotionless asperger-king feigning emotion to try to fit in. By later seasons he realized that trying to fake emotion was actually making him less agreeable to be around and embraced a more natural path to humanity.

Personally that episode ruined the borg for me and the queen worsened it. The whole creepiness aspect about them was their total lack of identity and automaton behavior which made them have an absolute relentlessness when trying to assimilate something. They were basically like a force of nature that just wouldn't stop. Trying to reason with them wasn't an option. Q lays out what the borg were all about in "Qwho" and the writers ruined it.

As soon as they got an identity the whole idea fell apart.

The Borg had an identity since they were in development, they just didn't get into it because you have to establish something before you start messing with it to be effective.

I loved end of season 6 or whatever when Janeway is ending the Nexus, and in probably one of the best moments of the series, and definitely the Queens best, it goes something like:
>"You're shutting down the Nexus. Is this your compromise?"
>"I don't compromise with Borg."
The Queen attempts to just strangle her one handed before she stops because Janeways a hologram at the time.
Just the fucking reaction time and response is perfect against the idyllic single-track minds of the Borg versus the escalation of bitterness and deviousness of Janeway through the series.

Your future offspring are so dumb, that the only job they'll be able to get in Starfleet is Holodeck Janitor

Yo momma, is SO gross, that she uses a phase disruptor to cut her toenails

Yo momma is SO ugly, that when she lived on Ferenginar, they told her to put her clothes back ON

Speaking of lame jokes, here's one from a local newspaper. The comic is called "Fingerpori" and it derives its humour from wordplays. For my own amusement I translated it, but as it turns out, the meaning gets lost, heh...

In finnish the word for 'defragment' is eheyttää, which - for some reason - was also the word some people used (a decade or two ago) in their quest to "cure gays", that is, to turn them back to "normal". And that's the joke here, that's pun! The seeming similarity between "Data defragmentation" and turning gays straight.

(The first panel is missing the R on purpose. I'm sorry.)

I laughed, only because "defagment" sounds pretty funny to my ears.

that's a pretty good try at translating a foreign-language pun

Thanks. (On a side note, would the second panel have sounded better if it was "the laws of the universe"? I just went with the first translation that came to my mind, oh well.)
