Even watching "The Menegerie" as a kid, I couldn't help but wonder why they couldn't come up with an easier way for the paralized Pike to communicate. I mean, all he could respond was "Yes" (one beep) or "No" (two beeps). Hardly a fulfilling life. Lord knows what he was thinking watching his younger self on the screen!
Be fair. Yes, they've encountered more advanced androids but there were made by more advanced civilizations. B4, Lore, and Data are pretty darned impressive because they were done by a human using technology developed by humanity.Yeah, when you consider the number of androids Kirk's crew discovered, Data probably shouldn't've been all that amazing by Picard's time.
