Storyline

The runabout Ganges returns to Deep Space Nine in serious trouble. The ship has no power, the hatch can't be opened and oxygen is running out. Also there seems to be an extra person on board. O'Brien is able to open the hatch and recognizes the guest as Vash, a corrupt archaeologist, from his time on Enterprise. She tells she has been traveling in the Gamma Quadrant for two years and has collected artifacts there. O'Brien meanwhile can't find anything wrong with the ship other than the power was being drained. Then the same malfunction appears on DS9. Dangerous blackouts are hitting the station. Meanwhile Vash gets a unexpected visit in her quarters. It's Q, the omnipotent being and he seems upset Vash left him. He wants her back. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Goofs

The operations crew tries to track the power drain by releasing tritium gas into the station's atmosphere. It is frequently mentioned that tritium is extremely toxic. However, tritium is simply a heavy form of hydrogen, which is not toxic even in fairly strong concentrations, provided there is oxygen present for people to breathe. Despite it being mildly radioactive, the principal danger in a case like this is from igniting the oxygen-hydrogen (i.e. tritium) mixture, not from poisoning the station inhabitants. See more »

Quotes

Q: You hit me! Picard never hit me.
Sisko: I'm not Picard.
Q: Indeed not. You're much easier to provoke. How fortunate for me.

One of the worst Star Trek episodes I've seen
21 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is pretty much terrible. The appearance of Q seems forced in the first place and the writing is just inconsistent; for instance, is Q omniscient or not? How'd he not spot O'Brian, and so on. The acting throughout is pretty terrible from Dr. Bashir's opening monologue to his corny ending joke line. In between, we have a silly story arc that just isn't very captivating. This entire cast seems to lack charisma and verisimilitude. Even when his entire station is at risk, Cisco barely even seems to get his blood pressure up. I feel like the director should have been shouting, "People, your lives are supposed to be at stake!". Even the auction feels like a high-school production instead of a prime-time TV show and resembles in no way a convincing real-life auction.
