I love this show, and would love it more if it was basically just Data all the time. Who gives a shit about crew member X having his/her body taken over by an alien? That happens five times a week on that ship.

Everything Data does is solid gold, though. In fact, Data living with Klingons sounds like the premise for a really good book.

I would be in favor of Data-centric Trek.

I had an idea years ago for a spin off called "Worf," that would have put Worf on Earth, having had to take a desk job with the Federation, so that he could care for his ailing parents (he'd been raised by humans, you'll remember). The entire show would have been Worf, just being Worf, and trying to adjust to life in the suburbs. The neighbor's dog poops on his lawn, Worf challenges him to a bat'leth duel. Worf gets invited to play a game of touch football with the neighborhood dads, he accidentally kills a couple of them. You get the idea. It would have been gold.

Amen. Data carried that show - hell, he carried the whole franchise. Worf was good, too, and Picard had his moments, but all you really need is Data. Well, Data, and that one scene with Troi eating the ice cream.

Data doesn't sleep, I assume he has enough free time to have a second job somewhere.

I am no fan of Worf. Michael Dorn is a fine actor and he did well with what the role had provided, but splitting up Mr. Spock into "Alien" and "Rational" and making them into two separate characters destroyed the beautiful elegance of the Enterprise as metaphor for the human psyche.

And don't get me started on the bizarre need to split McCoy up into two women and an adolescent boy. And Kirk into "Browbeating Shakespearean Protocol Droid" and "Walking Penis". Too damn many characters on that show, too many people to pay attention to.

Let's not even discuss Guinan.

Michael Dorn is not a fine actor. The only thing he ever did competently was Worf, and that is because the roll called for a constant surly monotone.

Xenocide
I think you're overanalyzing this (which marks the first time ever that someone overanalyzed Star Trek on the internet.)

TNG's cast was not just a dilution of the Kirk/Spock/McCoy trio. In fact the creators went out of their way to avoid replicating the first ship's dynamics, because they knew it would be pointless. That's why on TNG you have a gruff, well-read diplomat as captain instead of a horny space cowboy, and they stuck a Klingon on the Enterprise bridge after his species spent the entirety of the original series trying to eat Kirk's pancreas.

EvilHomer
I really liked the guy who played Han Solo.

I once thought of a comedy themed Star Trek show called "I Married a Klingon" which would basically just be a ripoff of Modern Family but in the future, where three human families have married Vulcan, Klingon, or Ferengi spouses.

I thought of a Klingon wife married to Lieutenant Barclay, who basically lives to be whipped, issuing challenges to bake sale moms and capturing renegade stray cats for pies (along with earthworms which she raises with the Ferengi dude next door).

Dinner parties would include a friendly game of charades which ultimately leads to bat'leth duals.

Fund the Worf and Data and Barclay sitcoms please.

Michael Dorn was also in Westwood's Dune game and he did a fine job there.

The Mothership
Yea, that's a good clip.
urbanelf
I don't understand this scene at all. The klingon may as well be having this conversation with a big wrench.
Comeuppance
Fuck off, Commander Bruce Maddox.

urbanelf
He's the Enterprise's oil filter, for fuck's sake.

Put data in your pipe an' smoke it

He just goes right back to playing Angry Birds.

This clip would be elevated just above perfection if someone dubbed angry birds SFX into the last few seconds.

Klingon vs. Really Polite Informative Command Decision Vending Machine.
urbanelf
You can't call him a vending machine without comeuppance blowing a gasket.

Change
Why are you being all weird?

Hooker
There's a scene in this show where they're in present time and in a motel, and room service phones and asks if they want the room serviced, and Riker, who answered the phone, panics and says no. Data and probably Worf are also there, and they all exchange confused looks, and then Data just blurts out something to the effect of, "I believe they wanted to clean the room, sir."

He just made a guess based on what the words "room" and "service" meant. Data is not a brilliant character.
Hooker
Also, this scene is just a Klingon pratfalling, which I think is like 50% of the humour on this show. I probably should have gone with one star.

sosage
It's typically Worf's job to play the comedy relief, awkwardly clumsy Klingon. This must've been filmed during Michael Dorn's smoke break.
Caminante Nocturno
That Klingon just got Data'd!

How do you "Data" someone?

After besting them, state an informative fact in a calm, matter-of-fact tone.

BAM! You just got Data'd!
Bort
It is a metaphor for the struggle towards enlightenment: pride and foolishness drive you to challenge the imperturbable and immovable cosmos, and your efforts rebound on you painfully. It is only then that you gain new understanding.
