"Star Trek: The Next Generation" The Next Phase (TV Episode 1992) Poster

Brent Spiner: Lt. Commander Data



  • Lt. Commander Data : In almost all societies, it is traditional to say a ritual farewell to those you call friends. I never knew what a friend was until I met Geordi. He spoke to me as though I were human. He treated me no differently from anyone else. He accepted me for what I am. And that, I have learned, is friendship.


    Lt. Commander Data : But I do not know how to say goodbye.

  • [Data is asking Worf for advice about La Forge's and Ro's funeral; the "ghostly" La Forge and Ro are watching] 

    Lt. Commander Data : Ensign Ro was a Bajoran. Her beliefs should be reflected as well. However, their death rituals are quite complicated.

    Ensign Ro Laren : [groans]  Oh, please, not the death chant.

    Lieutenant Worf : The Bajoran death chant is over two hours long.

  • Lt. Commander Data : Geordi. It is good to see you.

    Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge : Thanks, Data. I've never been to a better funeral.

  • Lt. Commander Data : Do you think the others will find this service appropriate?

    Doctor Beverly Crusher : Look around you, Data. Everybody's sharing their memories of Geordi and Ro, laughing and talking. What could be more appropriate than that?
