Coin Story

The “Measure of a Man”

When the U.S.S. Enterprise arrives at the newly established Starbase 173, Lt. Commander Data is ordered to serve under Captain Bruce Maddox, who wishes to disassemble and study him so that more androids can be made for Starfleet's use.

But after Data learns that Maddox may not be able to reassemble him, he refuses to submit to the procedure. When Captain Picard is unable to have the orders changed, Data's only option is to resign from Starfleet. His decision to resign, however, is challenged by Maddox on the basis that Data is not a person with rights, but property of the Federation.

What ensues is a brilliant legal battle to determine whether androids are considered as sentient beings with similar rights to that of humans, a topic of debate that is well ahead of the series’ time.
