Data has learned of new cybernetic techniques that will allow him to replicate his own Posotronic Brain in a new android life form. He does so, bringing his daughter Lal into existence. Unfortunately (for all of us), Starfleet has a different idea that Data as to what sort of treatment would serve Lal's best interests, and acts to remove her to a research facility. This conflict between a father and his government may spell the end of careers, and perhaps even lives.
Men want to be him. Women want to be with him. Androgynes want to go female for him. Even machines want to canoodle with him.
His name is Riker. William T. Riker.
