Data said a contraction?[edit]

Watch this episode and at the end Picard asks how data is and I swear he says "I'm fine" not "I am fine". Cburnett 02:40, Apr 8, 2005 (UTC)

Possibly. Maybe it was to keep the audience guessing. Cyberia23 07:01, 8 Apr 2005 (UTC)
In the show, they do not mention that Data can not use contractions, only that he does not. His use of a contraction may be in effort to be more human. 128.113.239.207 (talk) 06:56, 15 March 2011 (UTC)
Prior to this episode there was no restrictions on Data saying contractions, and it was only introduced here as a plot point. Miyagawa (talk) 13:41, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

Incorrect Episode Number?[edit]

Netflix has the this episode listed add the twelfth episode... — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.242.210.24 (talk) 02:52, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

There's some differencing in numbering for the episodes as some places list Encounter at Farpoint as episode 1, whilst others as episode 1 and 2. The official sources list it as 1 and 2, which is what we're going by here as its sourced. Miyagawa (talk) 13:40, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

  • " It would be Roddenberry's final script credit on a Star Trek series" -- Might want to clarify what happened after this.
  • Let me dig out a reliable source - I found this here which states what needs to be said, but I can get a better source than that. I'll flick through the books later and get the reference added. Miyagawa (talk) 18:53, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "who thought that the actions were not in line with his expectations of his character." -- Which character? Data or Lore? And how did each of them not work?
  • "Wil Wheaton later recalled that the stand-in actor used in this episode really irritated Spiner and was never used again." -- What was his name?
  • Wheaton couldn't remember, but he did say that it wasn't Guy Vardaman, who took over that role after this episode. Miyagawa (talk) 18:53, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
  • "reprising the role of Lore in the fourth season episode fourth season episode "Brothers" and the two parter "Descent", split between the sixth and seventh seasons." -- I don't know at all what this is saying.
  • Simplified to "Brent Spiner reprised the role of Lore in the episodes "Brothers" and "Descent". I guess something distracted me when I was typing in order for me to type "fourth season fourth season" into a sentence. :) Miyagawa (talk) 18:53, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
  • There is one duplicate link, but the disambiguation links and external links all appear to be fine.
  • I see no issues with article stability or neutrality. The image appears to be properly licensed.
Placing the article on hold pending a few minor fixes. —Ed!(talk) 01:48, 14 May 2013 (UTC)

Good work, passing the GA. —Ed!(talk) 01:46, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
