Mention of USS ExcelsiorEdit

I thought Worf's adopted father mentioned the USS Excelsior in an earlier season. The preceding unsigned comment was added by 76.164.23.154 (talk).

Nope, that was the USS Intrepid (mentioned in "Family"), an Excelsior-class starship. --Jörg 12:27, 7 August 2007 (UTC)

With Starship Deploy Status now deciphered, it is logical, that the USS Excelsior is not Sulu's USS Excelsior, but USS Excelsior --GDK (talk) 15:59, January 23, 2013 (UTC)

Data's mannerismsEdit

In the scene where Geordi and Data are illicitly manning the probe, just as Data swaps the interface for Geordi's VISOR, Data nods in acknowledgment to Geordi. I find this curious, as Data knows that Geordi can't see him, and unlike a human, Data's nod is not involuntary. Why would he nod deliberately at someone who can't see him? (Of course, the practical response to this is that Brent Spiner does not benefit from Data's detachment, and is himself likely to have nodded subconsciously.) – Nmsmith 22:51, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Same reason he blinks, scratches his ear, etc. Data has algorithms and such that govern his behavior, and are designed to mimic human behavior. In addition, he probably has added imperfections to them that allow for things like "nodding" in this instance, since that is what a normal person would do. --OuroborosCobra talk 22:58, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
