Sherlock Holmes - Star Trek Fact

Elementary, Dear Data is a play on 'Elementary, my dear Watson' in Star Trek The Next Generation. This often quoted phrase brings Sherlock Holmes up for speculation. However, neither Benedict Cumberbatch, Robert Downey Jr or Jeremy Brett ever uttered the words in any of Conan Doyles Tv series, movies or canon. So lets be clear. Sherlock never said it!!!! Ahh ha!  but what about Star Trek?

Well then ...  The Game Is Afoot.... so....

Which actor said: "Elementary, Dear Data" ?

Benedict Cumberbatch
Patrick Stewart
Jeremy Brett
Diana Muldaur
Brent Spiner
LeVar Burton
Daniel Davis

(the clues are staring you guys in the face with one of the actors who appears the most)

Live Long and Prosper

I remember the episode. My guess is Levar Burton.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Maybe Data said it.

James Pailly said...

Not sure, but I think it was Dr. Pulaski.

Susan Kane said...

How about Jeremy Brett? Altho not Star Trek, he put Sherlock back in the works.

You didn't show Robert Downey, Jr. I say that mainly because I really like him and his quirkiness. And Jude Law, too.

I vaguely recall the episode. But I can't remember who he was paired with.

They wouldn't let the series use Sherlock again, but at least we got Moriarty back, and that was what really counted. An underrated, brilliant piece of TNG lore.
