||The Next Generation
|Disc No :
|First Aired :
||7 May 1990
|Guest Cast :
||Okay, so Data can't get too close to Fajo without the forcefield zapping him. But this forcefield is specific to Data - normal objects pass straight through it, so Fajo can touch objects or other people. So what stops Data from clubbing Fajo over the head with something? Or just throwing a heavy object at him for that matter?
|Great Moment :
||Hard to pick. Data's apparent intent to kill Fajo, his subsequent dodging of Riker's question and his confrontation of Fajo in the brig are the highlights of an episode packed with excellent moments.
|Body Count :
||One - Varria.
||Originally Fajo was played by David Rappaport, but he comitted suicide two days into filming. Saul Rubineck was hired as a replacement, commencing filming only days later.
||"He was a man. Take him for all in all. I shall not look upon his like again." - Picard; on Data, quoting from Hamlet
A deranged merchant adds a new toy to his collection of unique articles - one Lieutenant Commander Data.
