Lieutenant Commander Data was a Soong-type android, the first and only such being to ever enter the Alliance. Data was created some time in the Multiverse. He was composed of 24.6 kilograms of tripolymer composites, 11.8 kilograms of molybdenum-cobalt alloys and 1.3 kilograms of bioplast sheeting. All told, he weighed approximately one hundred kilograms. Data's upper spinal support was a polyalloy designed to withstand extreme stress. His skull was composed of cortenide and duranium. His legs were exactly 87.2 centimeters in length. Data was built with an ultimate storage capacity of eight hundred quadrillion bits and a total linear computational speed rated at sixty trillion operations per second. Data was also equipped with an artificial tongue and tear ducts.
As a Soong-type android, Data was incapable of alcohol intoxication, yet components in his processing systems were susceptible to disruption by polywater intoxication.
