Here’s another one of these because we are hooked on comics.
Strange. It seems comics about Star Trek are becoming more and more frequent. Not that I’m complaining, I’m just noticing a trend.
I was suddenly compelled to make an informed TNG comment after reading this one, but then I decided it would be unfair to post spoilers. Then I realized the show ended like 20 years ago. 20 years ago…
Pretty sure the only possible android emotion is “Urge to kill”, so, they kind of dodged a bullet there…
That’s why you don’t give them emotions.
That one’s called self-pity. You ever simulate self-pity before?
I was always more confused as to why he couldn’t do contractions. That seems like programming of simple grammar rules. Just saying…
It really stands out nowadays, thanks to the development of such cutting-edge software as Tamagotchi.
I still believe it’s because emotional robots are so big on killing humanity.
Why is data sad in the third panel? That’s an emotion. I really hope someone gets fired for this one.
You, sir, have somehow managed to miss the point of this comic entirely. Well done.
Hidden comic: Aw come on, Riker. I was feeling good about life until you said that.
It’s just people overbaloracing what they think make them unique, it’s the same with people who mark humans mistakes as if they were un-natural when in truth there is no balance that last forever in nature and the ability to maintain it for so long with such a big population is un-natural
Riker – always the cynical one of the crew…
I liked the part when Riker was mean to Data, and Data got sad. Turns out he had emotions all along!
Seems like he can actually get sad.
Hidden Panel: not true. He totally went all the way with Lt. Tasha Yar. Nyow. “Fully functional” indeed. Domo oragato, Mr. Roboto? Cyber-Schwing!
Make some DS9 comic too! TOS wouldn’t mind also. Thanks!
(Not that I don’t like TNG)
Did anyone else at first think that William Riker was supposed to be Lewis from the Yogscast? I think I’ve been on enough internet for today.
They could program androids with emotion. There were a series of episodes with Data’s “brother” and his “daughter”, both of whom could feel. Basically though, they just told us that it’s a bad idea to let androids feel because it would corrupt them and overflow their brains.
