"Enter." Jean-Luc said.
In walked a familiar but visibly upgraded Data who appeared to have human like skin. His eyes were brown not yellow like his previous model.
"Admiral Picard?" Data said.
Jean-Luc was looking down at a photograph of the original USS Enterprise-D crew n his hands.
"Hello,Data," Jean-Luc said, lifting his head up.
Data came forwards with a smile.
"It is nice to see you again, Admiral," Data said. "I received a emotional chip shortly after our return."
"Did you come across the second Q in your later service?" Jean-Luc asked.
"Many times," Data said. "He allowed me to meet my brother and take the emotional chip back from him intact." His voice lowered. "I had to disassemble him."
Data sounded sad.
"Data . . ." Jean-Luc said.
Data raised his head back up.
"How was your retirement, Admiral?" Data asked.
"Uneventful, but enjoyable." Jean-Luc said.
"I have lost count how many times I nearly called my second captain your name." Data said.
"You did not lose count, you just deleted it from your processor," Jean-Luc said. "How has your career been in Star Fleet?"
"Eventful," Data said. "And memorable. I have successfully made my first stabilized child. His name is Max, Max Soong."
"Hm, you adopted a last name." Jean-Luc noted.
"I decided 'Data Soong' would make me blend in after my upgrade," Data said. "I have enjoyed the new body."
"Congratulations Mr Soong, you are even closer to the human experience." Jean-Luc said.
"I am glad to have you aboard my ship, Admiral," Data said. "Where are you intending to go?"
"Any place where a old man like me can sit back and relax," Jean-Luc said. "Which is anywhere of course."
"I just came to tell you that we are heading into the Delta Quadrant . . ." Data said. "And I believe you find this eventful and enjoyable."
"Knowing the namesakes of the starships bearing the name 'Enterprise',it will be quite the voyage." Jean-Luc said.
"It is nice to see you still have that fighting spirit,Admiral." Data said.
"Clewis to Soong," Clewis said. "We are ready to depart Earth."
"I will be there, Soong out." Data tapped on the combadge.
"Go, Data," Jean-Luc said. "Captain your ship."
"Capt--admiral," Data corrected himself mid-way, then he nodded as though he ignored his mistake. "Enjoy the voyage."
Data went to the door.
"You too . . ." Picard said.
The android left the room.
Jean-Luc looked down toward the photograph.
"Oh Geordi . . .I wish you could see how Data is so close to humanity. . ." Jean-Luc brought the picture close to his chest.
In 2449, Riker had passed away.
As had most of the original crew members of the Enterprise-D.
Only Jean-Luc and Data were the only people who remained.
If Jean-Luc left, that would make Data the last crew-member still alive.
