I do not "pew pew" thats escort guns
I more "peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew Peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew " because I fly mostly cruisers

I know a lot about trek and one of the things I know is species and who is alive and who isn't

Examples
Data / Lore / B4 android not alive
Norman Android not alive
Nog Cyborg alive
Geordie Cyborg alive
Seven of nine Borg technically undead

Many important characters in sci fi are non living robots

examples
Tweekie (buck rogers)
C3p0 (star wars)
Data (Trek)
Rommie (andromeda)
Cameron (terminator)

none of those are alive and any one of them can be duplicated on mass for use as shock troopers

Watch it. Then watch it again. Then watch it a third time.

Data is a sentient being. He is a machine, yes, but then again so are we (just of a different type). Yes, he was built by a human, but then again, so are we (just in a different way). Data is just as alive as we are. The standards for being alive are not as cut and dry as "being a biological organism". Being a machine doesnt disqualify you from being alive.

So the fact that you can comment that Data isnt alive, proves you understand nothing about Trek.
