  • Reminiscent of the TNG 1st season episode, "Hide and Q". A popular TNG character appears in order to jack up ratings for the spinoff.

    The writers really mailed this one in. Figuring that since both John DeLancie and Jennifer Hetrick were making guest appearances, they didn't actually bother writing a good story. This means we get the weakest Q episode since "Hide and Q" - and ironically, it comes only a few weeks before the very best ("Tapestry").

    All of Q's characteristics are completely overplayed here - the snickering jokes about humanity and his human companion, the non-stop references to TNG. Vash displays some of her charisma, but also shows that without Picard as a foil she's a rather uninteresting character.

    Feel free to skip this one.
