  • Robin of Q-wood Forrest....

    .... "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.
