With the First Link 2.09: The Measure of a Man


Data’s sentience and freedom of choice is on trial when he refuses orders to undergo a dangerous procedure. Ruthie and Matthew talk about parallels from this episode to the present-day crisis of body autonomy and how society excludes some humans when considering human rights.

With the First Link is excited to cover this first of the “classic” TNG episodes in our review of the series. Join us as we get into the deep metaphysical stuff while also stopping to throw shade at the ultimate TNG entitled whiner – Bruce Maddox.
