Wes and Data

Data meets Wesley crusher again and again (and again).

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.
