  • When Q's girlfriend and archaeological arch rival of Jean-Luc Picard shows up on DS-9, not everything is as it seems...

    When Vash, love interest of both Q and Jean-Luc Picard shows up on Deep Space 9, Q follows. Of course, when strange things begin to happen Q seems the obvious culprit - but is he really?

    Like a lot of early DS9 episodes, this show did not focus upon any of the heavy themes that make Star Trek great and was obviously thrown into the mix to help link the new series with the established Next Generation. The fact that producers chose to do this without relying upon another visit by the Enterprise or one of her crew was a master stroke that helped to seperate the spin off from its sibling while at the same time helped to make DS9 a legitimate part of the Star Trek universe.

    The result was a good show that managed to shine a little of the Next Generation's glory DS9's way. At this point in DS9's run it was not an established hit and it needed all the help it could get. Overall this far from the worst show in the first season and is one I would watch in re-runs.
