A Soong-type android was a type of android first created by the cyberneticist Dr. Noonian Soong. Soong-type androids were equipped with sophisticated positronic brains. A total of seven androids were known to have been created by Soong, although only the last four had fully functional positronic brains. The first five Soong-type androids were built as images of Dr. Soong, albeit with pale skin and yellow eyes. The sixth was made in the image of Juliana Soong. No other individual since was able to replicate Soong's accomplishment, although Data came close with the creation of his daughter Lal in 2366. (Star Trek Nemesis; TNG: "Datalore", "The Measure Of A Man", "The Offspring", "Inheritance")

Soong-type androids were incapable of alcohol intoxication, yet components in their processing systems were susceptible to disruption by polywater intoxication. (TNG: "The Outrageous Okona", "The Naked Now")

The beginning groundwork for the Soong-type android was first developed in 2154 by Noonian Soong's ancestor, Dr. Arik Soong, after giving up his work in genetics. (ENT: "The Augments")


Body frame Edit

The body frame was composed of tripolymers which were a non-conductive material. (TNG: "Disaster")

Apocrypha Edit

  • According to Star Trek Online, by the year 2409 the Federation, and by extension the Klingons, seems to have had success in creating more Soong-type androids, as Veteran subscribers can recruit one Android Bridge Officer for their crew.
