Data was destroyed while saving the lives of his crew members. But he sent a data stream containing all that he was into B4, a prototype created by Doctor Noonien Soong. Now that B4 is showing signs of the old Data, it is up to Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Geordi La Forge to shape him as he was before.
