Discovery of their sentience led to exocomps not being allowed to be used on a general basis in the Federation.  This is odd, because they would later have no problem sending possibly sentient holograms, [[Emergency medical hologram|EMH mk1]] systems, to do menial work in mines and plasma conduits.  This ruling seems to have been tied into the ruling involving Data in the episode, "The Measure of a Man."  Why it applies to these utility robots and not holograms is hard to understand.
