One of my favorite Star Trek characters

I love Data's soft spoken yet logical personality. He was compassionate, yet a cold calculator at the same time. He was a realist but also an idealist. He romanticized the human condition and was also quite perplexed by it. He sacrificed everything to become human. He was the consummate humanist with fantastical mathematical and scientific abilities.

I like Data, but he is third behind Worf and Picard for me. I like the warrior culture of the Klingons and the sense of honor.

Picard is so in control and sophisticated. My son is named Luke Jon. Coincidence? I don't think so!

I also love Spock who I think much of Data's character is an offshoot of.
