Moral :
Brothers : Just because it looks the same and is made the same doesn't mean that it is the same.
YATI : When Data locks up the computer, he issues a very long access code to it. Unfortunately, we see the code on the screen quite clearly - and it doesn't match exactly to what Spiner said.
Great Moment : Finally meeting Data's creator, Noonien Soong.
Body Count : One - Soong.
Factoid : Brent Spiner had a busy time in this episode, playing no less than three different roles!
