Did Lore and B4 ever know each other? Lore knew Data as his younger brother but did he ever come to know his older brother?

  • Original pre-Abrams continuity, primary canon only: I'm pretty sure there is no evidence of Lore knowing of B4, but have not read the Countdown comics and so cannot give a definitive answer. It's also possible Lore at one point or another suggests or outright states that Data has no other siblings, but I don't recall any such lines. – Kevin Feb 17 '18 at 0:26
  • I'd be pretty sure the writers didn't even know about B-4 when Lore was around... – colmde Sep 16 at 8:29

We know memories can be extracted from a positronic brain (Data to B-4, Lal to Data). And we know Data (or at least Starfleet) had custody of Lore after his deactivation. Thus it stands to reason that if Lore was aware of B-4, someone in the Federation would've begun a search for him before Shinzon's storyline.

The risk is that positronic brains can also be wiped (Data not remembering Juliana Soong), so it's possible Soong might have "restarted" Lore's memories after activating Lore and before shutting down B-4.

  • There's no good evidence that Data extracted Lore's memory. Also, Lore knowing that B4 existed wouldn't have sparked a manhunt (robothunt?) if he didn't know where B4 was... – Valorum Sep 15 at 16:07
