YATI : Just how can Admiral Haftel come in and try to confiscate Lal? It's already been decided in "The Measure of a Man" that androids have the right to choose their fate.
Great Moment : Of the many Great Moments, my personal favourite is when Admiral Haftel comes out of Data's lab after they 'operate' on Lal and describes Data's frantic efforts to save her.
Body Count : One, Lal herself.
Factoid : After he first asked Rick Berman if he could try directing an episode, Frakes was told to go and learn the ropes. He spent over three hundred hours watching editors, other directors, going to the dubbing stage, attending seminars and reading up on the subject before being allowed to try his hand on this episode. The makers were so pleased with the results that Frakes has become a regular director on Trek, with credits that include "First Contact" and "Insurrection".
Quote : "Thank you for my life." - Lal's last words to Data.

Plotline

After studying cybernetics Data creates Lal, a new android daughter. But Starfleet think she would be better cared for by specialists, and an Admiral comes to take her away - with tragic results.
