Data is in there under the surface. I think there is also written material in novels etc that take the story further, along the lines of Data coming back, or at least, B-4 being in full possession of Data's memories and unique behavior.
Its in the Path to 2409 book and Star Trek: Countdown comic.
They unlocked the "data matrix" in B-4 in which basically wiped out B-4 and made him Data. After a bit of testing, he was given the rank of Captain and issued command of the USS Enterprise E.
