one of the most brilliant exchanges ever written for television tbh
I mean as story decisions go, giving Data a cat and the screentime to try to logically reason with the cat with very little success, thus letting the robot embody Every Cat Owner Ever, was A+
The interaction between Data and Spot was awesome. Giving Data a pet made him a relateable character to the audience, rather than just a human-looking robot.
And honestly, who hasn’t tried to teach their cat not to jump on the table/counter?
