When requested not too long ago by TrekMovie what it took for him to take the position of Information as soon as extra, Brent Spiner was his sometimes dry self, cracking a joke about them throwing “tons of of hundreds of {dollars}” at him, earlier than explaining that it was only a matter of getting frank discussions with Terry Matalas about what they had been going to do with Information. As soon as the 2 had hashed issues out, Spiner was utterly on board to come back again and rejoin his pals on the Enterprise. He did not need to repeat himself, and Matalas’ plan gave Information an entire new dimension. Spiner defined:

“[…] it is taking the character to a very completely different place, actually, than he is been earlier than. [Gene] Roddenberry after I first met him, he was describing the character of Information and what he wished from Information was that Information would get nearer and nearer and nearer to being human. And on the finish of the day, he is as shut as he might be and nonetheless not. And I feel this type of addressed that much more. It continues that journey of Information getting so very near being human nonetheless he isn’t. He’s nonetheless an android. He nonetheless has a synthetic physique. And he nonetheless has confusion in regards to the human situation and what it means to be human. And that makes him, I feel, much more human, as a result of all of us wrestle with that.”

From the start, Information has at all times longed to be human. He even acquired suckered into having flesh placed on his android physique by the Borg queen in “Star Trek: First Contact,” almost forsaking his pals and crew for just a little android-on-Borg motion. So his truly being made human, or as near it as bodily potential by way of Dr. Soong’s cloning expertise, is ideal.
