Cold Equations: The Body Electric
The book I've just started is Cold Equations: The Body Electric by David Mack. It's the last book in a trilogy about Data's resurrection and his quest to bring his android daughter back to life too. It opens with this description of the last moments between Data and Lal ...
Data: Lal. I am unable to correct the malfunction.
Lal: I know, Father.
Data: We must say goodbye now.
Lal: I feel...
Data: What do you feel, Lal?
Lal: I love you, Father.
Data: I wish I could feel it with you.
Lal: I will feel it for both of us.
