Androids were artificial lifeforms. According to Webster's 24th Century Dictionary, Fifth Edition, an android was defined as "an automaton made to resemble a Human being."[1] The U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 first encountered androids that were near-perfect replicas of Humans on Stardate 2712.4.[2] Another group of androids, originating from the Andromeda galaxy, was discovered more than a year later.[3] Perhaps one of the most famous androids was Data,[4] created in 2338 by Dr. Noonian Soong.[5]
