Soong-type android. Positronic matrix commissioned and activated 2336 CE on Omicron Theta by Dr. Noonian Soong. Starfleet Academy graduate, 2345 CE. Assigned to U.S.S. Enterprise…
Is it not true that early 21st century medical technology has advanced such that human females whose reproductive capabilities are impeded by disease can still be aided in reproduction? Why, then, are not all infertile human females required to undergo this treatment? If human reproduction is always considered desirable, would it not logically follow that those who cannot reproduce should be compelled to do so? Clearly that is not the case.
Starfleet once considered my personal permanent deactivation in order to complete the laudable work of my creator and the possible mass reproduction of my positronic matrix. The tribunal eventually determined, I think rightly, that the manifest necessity of my continued existence as a discrete individual outweighed the possible advantage of my permanent destruction in the pursuit of potential new life.
My relations with Lieutenant Yar are a private matter.
This development is encouraging news. I have often found the acrimony among Memphis Flyer commenters to be counterproductive. After the first Khitomer Accords, close personal association between Klingon and Starfleet officers eventually led to a mutual familiarity which later served as the basis for a lasting peace.
After running several simulations, I project a 79.8 increased likelihood that Commissioner Ritz will attempt a run for county mayor in the event that he is expelled from the Republican Party. If the Republicans wish to retain their current level of influence such a move would be inadvisable.
Perhaps Commissioner Ritz and the Republicans could try holding hands, kissing, or performing some other human bonding ritual commonly used to indicate or re-establish mutual affection and support. A brief scan of my memory banks indicates that the human bonding ritual most suited to reconciliation in a situation such as this one is called "make-up sex."
Mr. Guleff, I am afraid that I do not understand your comment. I have scanned your comment history and I do not detect anything which could be adequately described by the words "hatefulness" or "negativity." Humans sometimes say the opposite of what they mean in exaggerated terms in order to convey a sense of levity during an otherwise tense conversation. This is called sarcasm. Perhaps Neil was attempting to tell you a joke.
I get it! Ha ha ha ha ha ha. I am laughing out loud!
I find it fascinating.
Most interesting. It is indeed an historical irony that previous Memphis city officials would choose Confederate leaders as the subjects of memorial reverence. According to historical records, in the 194 years since the founding of Memphis there have been at least 13,786 notable Memphians for whom permanent statuary could be justified according to the mores and customs of the times during which they lived.
I have found that humans often place a higher emphasis on the memories of those whom they consider to be their ideological peers. Perhaps, in light of changing circumstances, modern city leaders would find it expedient to reconsider which memories they choose to preserve. This could make it possible to enhance the neural pathways of future generations of Memphians.
