Second officer Lt. Commander Data has agreed to speak a complete record of a day in his functioning for the benefit of scientific android engineer Commander Maddox and concludes that 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 are appropriate from Dr. Crusher proves easy. Arthur Conan Doyle's logic of elimination Data soon masters, in time to solve a mysterious accident during negotiations with a Romulan admiral. —KGF Vissers
Hard not to like a Data episode
No intense moral conundrums or highly involved technobabble in this one, but it's a good star trek episode nonetheless. Maybe I just have a soft spot for fish-out-of-water type characters, but seeing Data's reactions to human situations is always fun. B plot makes sense and holds your attention well enough. Any character development Data experiences is somewhat minor, but that seems to be his mo for a lot of the series, and it's reasonable. There are a couple contrivances (Data is a close friend of some woman, and she needs specifically HIS help to tell her fiancée to cancel the wedding?) but if you can turn up your suspension of disbelief meter a bit, it's one of the more entertaining episodes.
