Let’s say you equip The Doctor with his Mobile Emitter, and let the two compete it out.
Any sort of competition, not just physical.
Seems to me the EMH Doctor would kick Data’s butt. First, while I’m sure that Dr. Sung (Soong?) guy who invented Data was a genius and all that, Data’s hardware & software have to be out of date. The Doctor on the other hand, has the latest in software running on a mobile emitter from even farther in the future!
The Doctor is surely more intelligent than Data, and a quicker thinker. I also notice that while Data blubbered around like a social and emotional idiot for awhile - and still seems klutzy with the whole social human interaction thing - the Doctor never had any problems with those silly “human emotions.” His personality was a bit prickly at first, but it was a personality, and he was designed as an emergency doctor so you really wouldn’t expect him to act like a Tribble.
What do you think?
