Watchalong “The Schizoid Man” S2 E6 of Star Trek TNG

Once again, Data takes a step forward in his quest to become more human.  First he tries out some now facial hair (who hasn’t during this quarentine, am I right?) and then he unwillingly takes on the entire human personality of a dead guy!!  Ira Graves has found a way to become inmortal- but it comes at too high a cost.  In this episode our hosts do a watch-a-long with this TNG epsidode, so fire up your CBS All Access or Netflix and watch some Star Trek with us!
