I love Data's poetry! I wish we could have heard all of the poem he was reciting before Ode to Spot too.

 

Thanks VBG! :biggrin:

I was looking through the board's directories and cleaning some things out when I found this video. I thought I'd bump this up for anyone that hasn't seen it.

Maybe there's a CD or book out there of Data's Poetry.

ODE TO SPOT

Felis Cattus, is your taxonomic nomenclature,

an endothermic quadruped carnivorous by nature?

Your visual, olfactory and auditory senses

contribute to your hunting skills, and natural defenses.

 

I find myself intrigued by your subvocal oscillations,

a singular development of cat communications

that obviates your basic hedonistic predilection

for a rhythmic stroking of your fur, to demonstrate affection.

 

A tail is quite essential for your acrobatic talents;

you would not be so agile if you lacked its counterbalance.

And when not being utilized to aide in locomotion,

it often serves to illustrate the state of your emotion.

 

O Spot, the complex levels of behaviour you display

connote a fairly well-developed cognitive array.

And though you are not sentient, Spot, and do not comprehend,

I nonetheless consider you a true and valued friend.

What was funny was later in "A Fistfull of Datas" when Riker ended up reading the poem.  LOL

It's not quite as good as Riker reading the poem in a later episode.

 

How did the writers know that Data's poem would become so iconic that people would recognize it later?

I think they just knew the audience, Star Trek fans notice the little details more than the normal audience of a regular TV show.
