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)

Trivia

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: [mockingly] The eminent Vash! Barred from the Royal Museum of Epsilon Hydra VII. Persona non grata on Betazed. Wanted dead on Miridon for stealing the crown of the First Mother.
Vash: Dead or *alive*!
Q: *Preferably* dead!

Not particularly logical...
10 December 2014 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The show features Vash arriving at Deep Space 9. If you don't remember, Vash is a lady friend of Captain Picard and she appeared in a few episodes of "Star Trek: The Next Generation". This character was enjoyable but never made a lot of sense regarding her relationship with Picard, as she is clearly amoral and steals antiquities--so why would the very straight-laced and very moralistic Picard like her? What doesn't make sense in this episode is her relationship with Q. Although Q is all-powerful and clearly very condescending, he chases after her like a love-starved puppy-- almost constantly begging her to rejoin him in adventures. What also didn't make a lot of sense is Q's stating that he knows everything--yet didn't remember Miles O'Brien when they meet once again. And, speaking of not making sense, why did EVERYONE on the ship behave so incredibly calmly and non-emotive when the station was about to be torn apart?! Logic is NOT a strong suit in this episode!

Despite all these and several other inconsistencies, the show is enjoyable enough. Q is always enjoyable (well, maybe not so much in the old Farpoint episode) and his banter with Vash is nice.
