Brent Spiner’s Patrick Stewart impression is out of this world

Brent Spiner played the Pinocchio-like android, Data, in Star Trek: The Next Generation, as well as a few of the films, and he remains a popular guest at conventions. At the Big Apple Comic Con, a fan asked him about the name of his character, which led him to share a lovely anecdote about the series, complete with an uncanny impression of Captain Picard, himself – Sir Patrick Stewart.

If Patrick Stewart really did switch a lot of Americans over to the British pronunciation of “data”, perhaps he could be persuaded to film a show with a character called “Aluminium”.
