Dr. Pulaski refuses to use Data's pronouns at first, but admits that Data is considered to be alive by Starfleet. Meanwhile the ship encounters a hole in space and is subjected to a series of tests.
This episode was reminiscent of how the crew got put to the test by Q at "Encounter at Farpoint." It's odd to me that the writers would have done this episode given how similiar it was to S01E0102. As we know they were not all out of good ideas.
@tomte IIRC she also refused to pronounce his name his preferred way, right? Dah-ta, rather than Day-ta?
@FiXato Yes, she has finally come around to that a couple of episodes later, but is still acting horribly towards him. :(
