Wes and Data

The Morning GIF: "Star Trek" fractal

Shares

Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

Good vs. evil. Logic vs. emotion. Loved vs. loathed.

Data vs. Wesley Crusher.

Ours is a spiral galaxy, and this may be the most perfect representation of a geek's view of our  cosmos: opposites attracting and repulsing one another, on and on into infinity. Wesley Crusher, one of the least popular characters in science-fiction history, a whiny teacher's pet masquerading as a teen heart-throb; Data, a seemingly emotionless android with a hidden heart of gold. Partners and antagonists forever, locked in a fractal embrace vanishing into infinity.
