Fun Stuff

From "Star Trek: The Next Generation: Inheritance (#7.10)" (1993)
Dr. Juliana Tainer: [answering an earlier question from Data] No, I wouldn't have left you behind if you'd been my biological child.
Lt. Commander Data: Hm... Is that because you place more value on biological life than artificial life?
Dr. Juliana Tainer: Absolutely not! I cherished every android your father and I created as if it *were* my child, even Lore - despite the fact that he turned on us, despite the dreadful things he did. Dismantling him was the most difficult thing I ever had to do. I was afraid that if you turned out like him, I would have to dismantle you too... And I couldn't bear to do that. I'm not trying to justify leaving you behind. I'm just sorry I did.
