C.f. the Doctor, the hunting targets donated to the Hirogen, M-5 (of a sort,) even the E-D itself. I'd bear that in mind, especially when trying to limit a system that was intended to become sentient such as the Soong positronic brain.

Mark wrote:Hey, do you suppose that Starfleet ever sent in a team to collect all the research and data found first at the research facility where Data and Lore were built, as well as Dr. Soong's new lab where he died?
With all of that research, and an extra ten years or so between Data's failure and his death, it should have been feasable to build new Androids, wouldn't you say?

Assuming that Starfleet in the four decades they've had to study the tech behind these androids, and theoretically COULD recreate them, do you think they would? We've seen how valuable Data was to the Enterprise time and time again, don't you think that Starfleet and the Federation would choose to embrace that culture and build them into a species (ie the Geth from Mass Effect or even Cylons)
