Star Trek CCG Easter Egg - Systemwide Cascade Failure

In this picture, Data's daughter android Lal has
her head opened up to reveal the robotics within.
If you look at the inticate circuitry you will
see the word "Asimov"

This is an obvious reference to who is often
considered the greatest sci fi writer of all time,
Issac Asimov.

This is also even more fitting remembering that
Asimov's "Three laws of Robotics" were one of his
most famous inventions, and were prevalent in most
of his sci fi writing.

Or of course, it could just refer to the fact that the Positronic brain (which Data and Lal have as the seat of their consciousness) was used first by Asimov in his Robots stories...:)

That episode was first season, because Riker does not have a beard. It's the episode where Data meets Lars, his earlier prototype. His deficiency was a human conscience. Let me check the archives: it's episode "Datalore." I believe it referred to a modern person from the Asimov Line.

Data even stated in an episode that Asimov had thought up the Positronic brain, which the idea was laughed at. The scientists found that Positronic brains could be created, and Viola: Star Treks Positronic brains! Sorry, I wish I could remember what episode this was or what Data said exactly, but I remember seeing it.
