Data's Hobbies

Being an android with no requirement to sleep would give you a lot of time to develop new skills and practice all your favorite pursuits. In The Next Generation we see Lieutenant Commander Data dabble in numerous hobbies including playing violin, painting, poetry, poker and holodeck adventures. His quest to understand the human condition and become more human himself is developed through his choice of leisure activities and entertainment choices.
In this episode of Earl Grey, hosts Joe Keegan, Kevin Scharf, and Ria Papageorgiou discuss Lieutenant Commander Data's many and varied hobbies from The Next Generation.
