WHY IS WESLEY THERE
Xenocide
I don't know what's going on but I'm sure it's his fault.

baleen
Wasn't he promoted somewhere at the end of the show?

Rodents of Unusual Size
Yes, but then he decided to quit Starfleet last minute and travel the universe as a space hippy, making his own automatic wormholes with the help of the Traveler.

Then he shows up again decades later in Star Trek: Nemesis for the wedding scene and it isn't explained why he has rejoined Starfleet since he is the only human in the history of Star Trek capable of going instantaneously to any part of the galaxy, or other galaxies.

Also, I LIKED WESLEY HE WAS CUTE. So there.

That guy
ROUS, this specific instance of your sexual orientation is NOT OK.

ashtar.
Wesleysexuals are an abomination before the Lord.

Today Rodents of Unusual Size helped me to understand the similarities in career arc between Wesley Crusher and Sarah Palin.

Rodents of Unusual Size
I REFUSE TO GO BACK INTO THE CRUSHERSEXUAL CLOSET.

I also refuse to feel shame. I'm badass.

In your face, Dore Street.

Xenocide
I think there's about one episode per season where Data either turns evil or his evil twin brother shows up. Then the entire crew barely prevents him from killing everyone and in the process they realize how completely inadequate they are compared to Data.

Evil Data was just too great a temptation for the writing staff to resist.
Cube
Brent Spiner must've had a special contract where he got to play all other kinds of parts at least once in a season.

Including the stupid-voiced outlaw in Worf and Alexander's holodeck Western.

And the stupid-voiced messenger of the mystical space spirit Masaka.

Or the... Well, it seemed Spiner only had one other voice, that he used whenever data was possessed, reprogrammed or just zapped in the circuits.

Jane Error
I agree--Spiner must have had something in his contract that insisted that he had opportunities to show his range as an actor, as he was known for being a good mimic.

Which was a big mistake. As gentle, quiet Data, Spiner was superlative, but his other characters in TNG always came off as goofy and clownish.

IrishWhiskey
Yeah, let's have a super long voice code for key commands. I'm sure that won't pose problems to swiftly acting in a crisis.

And it's way safer than having the computer scan the person speaking and confirm they aren't just using a tape-recorder.
Gmork
you think that isnt happening at the same time? it is

The Great Hippo
I think the point was to render it (basically) impossible for anyone to undo what Data just did.

Also this whole extended scene should be submitted, it's basically Data owning everyone's shit.

EvilHomer
Yeah, that wasn't a "key command". Data was trying to take over the ship by impersonating Captain Picard. He made that authorization code to lock the real Captain Picard out from the ship's systems. Causing problems and preventing the crew from acting swiftly was the whole point!

UGH SOME PEOPLE.

gmol
I guess they never invented reasonably good computer vision/face recognition in the 2Xth century...

SolRo
If you're so desperate to be pedantic about it, they have computers that are powerful enough to scan and store the composition of an object down to the electron level in a couple seconds to make transporting possible, so Data's password would be brute force hackable in fractions of a second.

EvilHomer
BUT ONLY WITH A COMPUTER. You can't brute force a password like that without a computer, and the crew was locked out of said computer, so there.

Jet Bin Fever
Cameras are complicated!

baleen
I know what the fuck. Next this show will be saying that there are alien ladies with New Jersey accents and ridges on their foreheads that skip around starbases in failed spinoffs.

Rodents of Unusual Size
Fran Drescher was in Star Trek?

Actually, Fran Drescher in alien makeup would be a way better show than Voyager.

memedumpster
This is a more complex password than the computer requires to blow up the Enterprise. Data is obviously smarter than a non-sentient isolinear boring ass FTL bus processor. If he wanted to be a dick, he could have loaded Moriarti from the holodeck as a firewall.

Bort
Spoilers: Geordi was able to get the system to reset the password by answering "What is the name of your pet?"
badideasinaction
The really awkward part was when the answer was "Wesley"...

Robin Kestrel
I love you, Bort.

Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
He should have used upper and lowercase letters and special characters!
Hooker
He threw a C in there.

Aelric
You know, they had to forgive Data for a lot of things, quite often.
Rodents of Unusual Size
To be fair, Starfleet gave them the okay to dismantle Data and essentially kill him, but the trial for his existence probably embarrassed their whole morality code of "respecting everyone" so after that every time he went haywire and accidentally almost killed everyone he just got a slap on the wrist.

Let's hear it for biohumanoid guilt.

kingarthur
Data brought up that shit every time he malfunctioned.

Rodents of Unusual Size
REMEMBER THAT TIME YOU FUCKERS TRIED TO ENSLAVE ME AND DISMANTLE ME UH HUH I THOUUUUUUGHT SO

badideasinaction
I'm just wondering what writer's Easter egg there was in that code, or was Data just spewing random alphanumerical stuff.
