I'm so glad to hear TrekTV is back up! The past few episodes have been great. I wanted to share with you something that occurred to me while listening to your episode on "Measure of a Man".
When Riker turns Data "off" with his off switch, Riker uses that to demonstrate that Data is just a machine. I wondered why Picard didn't mention the Vulcan neck-pinch as a counter argument, demonstrating how humanoid life-forms can be "shut off" in a similar manner. Riker's argument seems pretty weak when held next to this. What do you think?
