  • Voyager accidentaly rescues an imprisoned Q, which then results in the other Q who made a habit of pestering Captain Picard making an appearance.

    While examining a strange asteroid, Voyager accidentaly rescues an imprisoned Q. It turns out that this Q was imprisoned for having suicidal tendencies, and when Picard's favorite Q makes an appearance to reimprison Q, the formerly imprisoned Q requests asylum from captain Janeway. Any time John Delancie makes an appearance as Q, the episode becomes an instant classic. As with the best Q episodes, everything is done right, an interesting plot, lots of witty quips, comedy, sarcasm. Although this episode doesn't do anything to advance the storyline, it does develop the character of Q further, showing that his time spent among humans does seem to have changed him for the better. And besides, who cares if the Voyager storyline doesn't advance when you've got Q making an appearance.
