Vulcan salute M-9

A sign of the M-9 language.

M-9 was a designation of gestural language learned by Lt. Commander Data in his attempt to communicate with Riva, a deaf mediator from Ramatis III.

One of the gestures of the M-9 sign language was similar to the Vulcan salute. (TNG: "Loud As A Whisper")

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia, most of the gestures seen on Data's screen were adapted from American Sign Language. The Vulcan salute was included "to see if anyone would notice."
