And couldn’t that promise a extremely fascinating remaining Information/Lore story?”

That’s a whole lot of what-ifs. However when Matalas spoke with Spiner himself, the actor was captivated with these new potentialities for his character. “I took that to Brent pondering he was going to reject the entire thing, and he was like, ‘Oh, that’s truly actually cool.’ Brent was unbelievably collaborative with it, and Brent had concepts that solely elevated it in methods I couldn’t have imagined. In truth, a few of the finest moments of this story had been Brent’s thought.”
