The musician Pogo has a new song called "Data & Picard" (spotify link) on the album "Weightless". (spotify link)

Pogo is famous for sampling elements of movies, tv, music to create his tracks.

I recognize several of the samples he used from Star Trek: The Next Generation but am interested if all the samples and correlating them to the episodes they came from can be identified?

Here is a YouTube video of the track:

    +1 even though the vid was weird and somewhat creepy while also being morbidly quite funny.

    Disappointed Darmok and Jilad at Tenagra wasn't in the song.

From one listen through:

  1. When I was in the academy... Cheer up my lads. Allegiance: Picard confuses ten forward by singing.

  2. Is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all... Menage a Trois: Picard is quoting Shakespeare to intimidate a Ferengi who wanted to marry Lwaxana.

  3. Really quite hypnotic... Timescape: Picard is doing an impression of a lecturer.

  4. Tea, Earl Grey, Hot Contagion: This could be from one of several episodes.

  5. Jean Luc Picard of the Federation Starship... Again, this could be from almost any episode.

  6. That's an interesting twist. The Hunted

  • Quite hypnotic.

    To add to ench's answer, the long string of numbers is from "Brothers" (memory-alpha.wikia.com/wiki/Brothers_(episode)) when Data recites the lockout override codes to usurp control of the Enterprise. Commented Jan 27, 2017 at 21:58
  • I really feel this answer could use a little more work/contribution. Someone should be able to identify the exact episode for #5. Plus as @Vanguard3000 points out, the answer isn't complete. Commented Nov 16, 2018 at 18:37

In addition to ench's answer, Pogo's description of his video on YouTube describes a couple more dialogue sources:

The track opens with the Klingon Victory Song [no episode cited], followed by a remix of Data singing Che Gelida Manina [from La Bohème] in the episode In Theory. This episode was the first ever to be directed by Patrick Stewart and I didn't realize this until after the track was finished.
