If they hate him, they're Star Trek haters! A.K.A. they're idiots! Data's SEXY, not cute! And sorry for not really responding to ya. The home computer is an ass, and at the time my NOOK was being the same way. I'm using my NOOK now, while it's behaving.
??Uh, B-4 was a Proto-type. Dr. Noonien Soong built 5 androids...you didn't know that?? Only Lore and Data were functional. Soong was still profecting the prositronic brain when he created B-4, that's why, as you say, B-4 was an "idiot". Not B-4's fault, Soong was still trying to get it right. And that's why we have Data!
I knew that...every Data fangirl knows that or they're not a Data fangirl. I knew he was still perfecting the positronic brain, back then. But I agree! Data's awesome! When he saves the ship, somehow I always say 'Now, that's why you've got an android!
