    Robin of Q-wood Forrest....

    By uk6strings, Jun 07, 2013

    .... "Qpid" is a very fun episode that sees Q take the crew off the Enterprise and into his version of the Robin Hood tale. Picard is Robin Hood, the crew his Merry Men (which angers Worf the most) and Vash is Maid Marian but no damsel in distress. Vash's improvising off of the original script takes Q by surprise and he naturally tries to up the ante on the fly. Q's goal is to show Picard that his love for Vash (whom he met during the events of "Captain's Holiday") will be his own undoing - meanwhile, the audience is treated to some very funny situations and old-fashioned swashbuckling action. But "Qpid" is not all stupid. The Picard and Vash storyline fleshes out both characters nicely but especially Picard as we see him balance love within the life of a Star Fleet captain.moreless

    Worf is Not a Merry Man

    By Celedorian, Jan 28, 2012

    This is a fan favorite because of how it places our beloved crew in an unfamiliar environment (with new costumes and makeup) and throws Q and Vash into the mix as well. (Indeed, the writer of this episode Ira Steven Behr was the writer who created Vash in the first place.) It's a bit of a silly romp, but its uniqueness and whimsy (and hilarious one liners) make it a memorable episode. And it's great to see the actors outside in a real forest.moreless

    Hilarious Q episode, much what we would expect from John De Lancie.

    By bdllbo, Jun 05, 2011

    Q teaches (like most omniscent beings like to do) Picard a lesson in love in this hilarious episode in which the crew is thrown out of their element and into medieval England and Robin Hood and his merry men. Worf and Data are hilarious and Picard is a bit of a romantic in the role of Robin of Locksley. Troi shooting Data in the abdomen and then Worf smashing La Forge's mandolin are the highlights of the episode. John De Lancie, like he does with every episode with Q, does a superb job. I wish they had made more Q episodes to see the treasure that is John De Lancie and Patrick Stewart's comaraderie that shows through.moreless

    QPID may be STUPID, but there is enough humor here to make it a completely enjoyable experience.

    The whole Robin Hood concept that anchors this show is completely inane, an apparent attempt to cash in on a popular movie of the early 1990s.



    That said, this episode is a guilty pleasure. There are tons of good gags. (My favorite is the tribute to Animal House.) Two relationships with plenty of chemistry - Picard & Q, Picard & Vash - are enough to keep the plot moving.



    My only quibble - the first half of the episode suggests that a complete Picard-Vash episode had potential. Explore the captain's privacy, etc. Instead, the writers blocked and turned this into pleasant fluff. Why?moreless

    The “Enterprise” is hosting a archaeology meet. Picard goes to his quarters and surprised to find Vash there. Vash is the woman Picard met on Risa. Beverly Crusher comes to Picard quarters and finds Vash there. Beverly seems a little jealous.

    The “Enterprise” is hosting a archaeology meet. Picard goes to his quarters and surprised to find Vash there. Vash is the woman Picard met on Risa. Beverly Crusher comes to Picard quarters and finds Vash there. Beverly seems a little jealous. Later we find Picard going to his ready room and finding “Q” there. “Q “ wants to repay a debt so it seems. Picard is giving a speech and “Q” decides he wants to play. So he banishes Picard along with some of the crew members into the Robin Hood story. Now Picard has to save Vash.moreless
