My husband recently discovered a lively discussion, on another site, about the myriad inconsistencies in Data's character over the years. I thought his response might amuse you, so I reproduce it here:
While I ponder, weak and weary
The inconsistent Data theory
Trying to poop an answer I would sign.
Could an arrow bust him up, er
A phaser make him late for supper
This easily damaged form of his so fine.

Should our hero come a-tapping
We have just released to the public our FREE Star Trek game based on the Torque 3D engine. It is title Star Trek: NCC1701 and features for the first time the entire original Enterprise rendered in full-scale 3D. This means players can actually walk the entire interior of theship from top to bottom when all interior decks are completed.
For now, our playable demo includes the bridge and the shuttlebay (you can turbolift between the two), and the ability to fly a shuttle around the outside of the ship and practice various combat and flight missions.

If I get too skittish, this won't stay up here long. There is a pick out there asking if anybody has written a Star Trek fanfiction. I was surprised that nobody has submitted one on here. This is an incomplete one. Questions, comments, ideas, and observations are all welcome. Should I keep going on this?
When you look at Star Trek as a whole, you begin to see that many of our favorite characters say the same things in many episodes and movies, often adding (in my opinion) a strong element of comedy. I've searched for some of these "common threads" and discovered two lists of funny quotes from McCoy.
Dr. McCoy (Bones) about being a doctor:
I'm a doctor, not a bricklayer. Devil in the Dark
I'm a doctor, not a psychiatrist. City on the Edge of Forever
