In very rare cases, an excellent Star Trek novel does both. Immortal Coil does more with Data's emotion chip, growing self-awareness and maturity, and the implications of artificial life/sentience (as opposed to intelligence) than Insurrection and Nemesis even tried to do, and this novel does it with aplomb. It rewards the long-time fan with connections to the Original Series, connections between different Trek AI storylines, and characterization consistent with the series. It felt more like an extended episode of The Next Generation rather than an independent Novel. I was looking forward to it as perhaps a spring board to something more. But its a self contained work unto itself.

Immortal Coil is a Star Trek: The Next Generation novel written by Jeffrey Lang, published by Pocket Books in February 2002. When a newly developed android developed by Starfleet is destroyed, Lieutenant Commander Data helps investigate the incident and who is responsible.
Star Trek: The Next Generation - 116 - The Light Fantastic. Returning to the story begun in the novel Immortal Coil and continuing in the bestselling Cold Equations trilogy, this is the next fascinating chapter in the artificial life of one of Star Trek’s most enduring characters. He was perhaps the ultimate human achievement: a sentient artificial, self-determining, possessing a mind and body far surpassing that of his makers, and imbued with the potential to evolve beyond the scope of his programming. And then Data was destroyed.
It brought many different past episodes of Next Generation and The Original Series together seamlessly to explain the history of artificial. Jeffrey Lang has authored or coauthored several Star Trek novels and short stories, including Immortal Coil, Section 31: Abyss, The Left Hand of Destiny, Foundlings (in the anthology Prophecy and Change), and Mirror Eyes (with Heather Jarman, in the anthology Tales of the Dominion War). During the run of the original Star Trek series many other robots and androids were seen, yet Data is often referred to as the only android in existence during the time of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Immortal Coil explains what happened to those other robots and androids, and how Data fits into their histories. The story references several previously-seen artificial intelligences and characters
