Data was one of the most human beings I've ever known. He was also one of the best friends I've ever had.
Jean-Luc Picard
2380 ("Zenith")

Data was a male android who served in Starfleet during the 2370s as operations officer of the USS Enterprise-E.[1] He held the rank of lieutenant commander until his death in 2380.



Jean-Luc Picard[]

Jean-Luc Picard considered Data an "invaluable member" of his crew for many years, only fully realizing upon his death how much he depended on Data's expertise. Picard also considered Data to be one of the most human lifeforms he had ever known, and one of his closest friends. So strong was their friendship that he fully trusted and endorsed Data's choice for his successor at the operations station of the USS Enterprise-E.[2]

Miranda Kadohata[]

Miranda Kadohata served under Data on the Enterprise-E for an indeterminate number of years. During that time, they became friends, and Kadohata began to admire him as an "exceptional" officer. Data was always capable of cheering her up, despite being an android. Prior to his death, Data made a recommendation for Kadohata to succeed him as the ship's operations officer.[3]
