S01E13 Datalore


Grant and Rob dissect this ‘evil twin’ episode, and the back story to the androids of Dr. Noonien Soong. Data’s character is really fleshed out, and we get to meet the evil Lore – who will return later on. There is talk of positronic brains and the idea that we could make robots ‘too human’.

Data wonders why the crew react so oddly when he wears his backup head.

  1. The weirdest thing about this episode for me was the way the lighting on Lore was always completely different from the lighting on Data, even when they were in the same room.

    Lore seems particularly fond of standing in places that leave him with a narrow band of light across his eyes.
