Why does an android have nipples? I'd understand it if she were a sex-bot or had gotten a biological upgrade to enhance her relationship with a human but it seems odd for Dolly to have them.

more its a inclusion of the original mesh and I blame my lack of skill :D

Q: If a mortally damaged android can be uploaded to their equivalent to a gig-stick backup (i.e., the S&R team) and if Dolly has been "temporarily copied out of her body" for some of Calli's riskier proceeders... then why can't Dolly be "backed up" for this proceedure? Is it the idea of being "copied" versus there only being one personality matrix at all times? If it came to a worst-case scenario, why couldn't they use a backup of Dolly to reinstall her personality into her old body?

New Troy has a strict no copy policy.. it once again is tradition and not always followed but ANY copy procedure carrys a risk of damageing the whole.. and so is only done in worst case senarios...

In the newer parts of the story, the backups are performed with "quantum drives". Now I must admit that the specifics of quantum computers are beyond by knowledge (and quite possibly comprehension); but while it's apparently possible to copy QBit states under certain conditions, I can very well imagine that the procedure involved in moving the personality matrix is in fact destructive to the original quantum superposition...

also known in sci-fi plots as 'TJC' = 'They Just Can't'
*waves hand*
you do not have a need to know...the writers don't have a want to tell you...
it just is...these are not the plot holes you are looking can go about your business

they're not really plot holes anyway, just things that "everyone knows" and don't need how 'saving' an android brain to data turns it into coleslaw in the process ;)
