Storyline

Second officer Lt. Commander Data accepted to speak a complete record of a day in his functioning for the benefit of scientific android engineer Commander Maddox and concludes his programming must be improved concerning interaction with human emotions, most puzzling given human practices such as irony. Chief Miles O'Brien's human wedding is amply confusing, even for Worf, bride Keiko Ishikawa's gibbers even more illogical. Learning dances and which is appropriate from Dr. Crusher prove easy. Conan Doyle's logic of elimination Data soon masters, in time to solve a mysterious accident during negotiations with a Romulan admiral... Written by KGF Vissers

Unusual day in the "life" of an android working in outer space.
2 June 2011 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Data is an android, or very human-like robot, that works in outer space on a ship capable of traveling with amazing speed from one star system to the next. In this fascinating episode of the well-regarded series, Data composes a communication to a fellow researcher regarding his day of interacting with a variety of characters and their situations. Besides his ongoing effort to understand the "emotions" of living creatures, he finds himself kept busy with helping two friends who may or may not be getting married, assisting with delicate interstellar diplomacy, learning to dance, among other things! Data's day is a dizzying whorl of activity, and it is fortunate that he is programmed with superhuman intelligence, charm and tenacity. A fine example of a science-fiction story. Also good for people who dislike science-fiction.
