ChildOfTheSun32 : The World needs Captain Picard to be in charge now more than ever. My friend summed it up perfectly once. He said: There's no event in history, real or imagined, that wouldn't have turned out better for everyone involved if Picard was in charge.

Richard Davis : I am the senate

John Smith : How does Picard walk with balls that big?

Edd25164605 : Picard takes no crap from nobody !

Jeremy H. : Good ol' TNG. The socialist utopia. Even Picard refers to the federation as " the state ".

Mnogojazyk : Picard's speech is nice and I like it, but he (or his writers) does not know how bureaucratic systems operate, so it seems. I imagine a scenario like the following takes place off camera. Data files under Picard's guidance a complaint with the Sentience Life Rights Commission (by whatever name it goes by) against Star Fleet. While the case wends its way through the courts, this admiral's order is automatically stayed. Eventually, this case and the dismantling case against Data's person comes to light and so does the finding in that case against Star Fleet by one of its own administrative law judges. The civilian government then has to act against Star Fleet unless it wants to give credence to a perception among many people that Star Fleet has become a rogue agency of the representative republic whose ideals Star Fleet is supposed to enshrine and protect but does not. Star Fleet probably loses on the merits of the case anyhow. Star Fleet has treated Data as a sentient being for several decades: there are educational records and personnel records. If he owns property, there is the analogue of bills of sale, property deeds, transfer records, etc. Those are prima fascia documents that as far as Star Fleet and perhaps others are concerned, Data is indeed a sentient life form, a person in more colloquial vernacular. Star Fleet may try to argue that Data was only a test case that he does not have legal standing because he's an android, but then Star Fleet would be repudiating its own position. If Star Fleet does so, Data appeals to a higher court. Star Fleet is not in the best of position to make a finding one way or the other because it is an interested party -- read conflict of interest -- and the issue is far too great for Star Fleet to make any finding. If SF did, there are Data's grounds for appeal. Would that end that case? Probably not. Some rogue Star Fleet officer would try another tactic a few years later. Even with a prejudicial finding against Star Fleet, someone would try again. Alas, for some people and some groups cannot take no for an answer.

Katy Lee : What if they are just taking her to a "summer camp"

aperson22222 : You tell him Picard!

CvnDqnrU : Ontario, Bill 89.

Nananki : TNG is the best show ever, seeing it as a kid was more impactful to my way of thinking than anything else on television. Data taught me what it meant to be human, and Picard taught me what it meant to be a man.

kilroy987 : "I am Starfleet, Captain." You're not all of Starfleet. Someone else there may have a different opinion. And in the end, Picard didn't care who he would be talking to.

Michael Coulter : Oh, Jean Luc - you, Sir are what every man alive should aspire to become!

User : 0:09 mfw machine is lecturing me on ethics

Kelly : I am her father. Though Data may not recognize his emotions, he does feel, perhaps they are android emotions and he for sure loves his daughter

Oh Lawd : Awesome.๐Ÿ‘

TheTheratfarmer : belay that order,

TheTheratfarmer : Captain i am.
