S1E12 Datalore: The One in Which Data Gets a Widdle Brudder

Star Trek: The Next Generation analysis of season 1 episode 12 (Datalore)

In an episode so wonderful it's as if it was plucked fully formed from Nic's head, today we revel in the pure joy that is Datalore - an episode that is BOTH Data- and Wesley-centric. Whoowee!

Datalore hits on several deep topics while dancing along a delicious camp edge. We explore the episode's themes of found vs biological family, are we ever really known by the people around us, correct pronoun usage, ageism, neurodivergence, and more!

Our amazing intro and outro music was created by the supremely talented Trevor Andrew Hamer. If you'd like to work with Trevor or see more of his work, you can find him on: Instagram | YouTube

About the Podcast

Redshirt Collective
A Star Trek: The Next Generation Watch-Along Podcast!
Join Nic and Mike as we boldly go...through every single episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation! We post every other Thursday, covering one episode of TNG in each episode of the podcast, giving our takes as radical leftists and connecting themes in the show to our personal experiences.

Looking to create a welcoming space for all those in the fandom that are usually kept at the margins; we want our comrades from around the world to laugh and rage along with us as we analyze a show that functioned as dangerous heteronormative neocolonial propaganda, but also as a heartwarming attempt to find humanity, tenderness and curiosity within ourselves. Welcome aboard, comrade!
