PLAYED BY Brent Spiner
PROGRAMMING A twist on Mr. Spock from the original Trek, Data is an efficient science officer aboard the Enterprise but he's also an android who yearns to experience human emotion.
SPECIAL FEATURES In Generations, Data installs a chip that enables him to feel everything from fear to glee.
MEMORABLE LINE (In Generations, recalling a joke he'd been told seven years earlier) ''I get it! 'The clown can stay, but the Ferengi in the gorilla suit has to leave!' I get it!''
WHY HE PUSHES OUR BUTTONS Like many of the best robot characters, Data makes us wonder what it really means to be human.
