Symptom 15: Do Androids Dream of Positronic Emotions
7 days ago
This week is another Isolation Unit Episode, meaning Corey, Nick and the Ragemaster could not make it. Of course this also means Scott had no one to stop him from talking about Star Trek. Symptom 15 discusses Data from Star Trek The Next Generation and his supposed lack of emotions. Data is portrayed throughout the series as having no emotions. By season three it is firmly established that he has no emotions. In this week's Sci-Fi Malady I argue that this is as believable as the sales pitch of a Ferengi. While Data may not have complex emotions, or display the physiological manifestations of emotion, he clearly, on some level, has emotions, even if he doesn't realize that he does. This, like all solo efforts, is a shorter podcast, its only about 20 minutes in length.
