Last week we took a look at aging characters and now we do the same but with Artificial Intelligence? in Star Trek

Characters age just like actors. Some get taller, larger, thinner, change their hair, or get wrinkles; except when they don't.

This week we discuss Data and The Doctor. How they changed, grew up, modified their own programs, and experienced pain. Both have a lot in common beyond being artificial. They both aspire to be more human, to be larger than the sum of their parts, and they both have experienced loss.
