  • A powerless Q returns and wants to become an official member of the crew. An M-Class planet called Bre'el IV is on the cusp it's own armageddon. Q's past haunts him as he tries to deal with the situation.

    Probably the second best "Q" episode in the series (first being "Tapestry"). An episode that truley questions and analyzes what it is to be "human". Through "Q", the episode thoughtfully goes through the little things humans take for granted. What made the episode ever more interesting was that Q's teacher is Data. Simple things such as eating, sleeping, and group work prove an interesting test of Q's intelligence. The episode humbles Q for the first time. The plot offers an interesting character hiding in space, that being the Calamarian. All of this folded perfectly within the primary mission, that being saving the planet Bre'el IV from an impending collision with it's moon. Overall, it's Q at his finest. There's nothing more entertaining than Q and his relationship with the crew.
