I have a soft spot for Norman, I don’t know why as I’m not overly fond of the episode, it’s okay but a little on the silly side for me.
That said I always wonder why Data would consider himself so unique in the universe when there’s a whole planet of androids as well as the androids from What Little Girls Are Made Of.
I kind of wonder why Starfleet never spent any time researching any of this considering.
They just feel like episodes that have been conveniently overlooked when developing Data’s story and a throw away line might have been, oh sure we’ve encountered alien androids in the past but none made by humans and not as advanced.
