Much to Picard's displeasure, Q reappears on the Enterprise, claiming to have been ejected from the Q Continuum, and therefore, lost his powers.

The Enterprise assists the planet Brial 4 which is threatened by its moon which falls onto the Western continent, reason unknown and impossible to shatter without even greater damage. The tractor beam proves too weak; then suddenly the dreaded Q appears aboard, naked, claiming to be stripped of his omnipotence too, thrown out of the Continuum and forced to chose a mortal life form: human. While Q makes a brilliant engineering suggestion and wrestles with the human condition, the calimarane, a species with a grudge against him, and next a deus ex machina appear...

John de Lancie actually filmed his nude scene standing upright in front of a blue screen. His horizontal position was a special effect created in post-production, with Captain Picard positioned strategically in front of him. See more »


The Enterprise was hovering about the moon, trying to keep it from drifting into that planet. Yet, in scenes when Q was talking with the Captain, you could see stars going past as if their vessel were moving. See more »


Lt. Cmdr. Data: I have observed that the selection of food is often influenced by the mood of the person ordering.
Q: I'm in a dreadful mood. Get me something appropriate.
Lt. Cmdr. Data: When Counselor Troi is unhappy, she usually eats something chocolate.
Q: Chocolate?
Lt. Cmdr. Data: Mm. A chocolate sundae for example. Although I do not speak from personal experience, I have seen it have a profound psychological impact.

Deja-Boo Q
16 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Robert de Lancie is the whole show here. No one can whine and complain like he does. He has lost his status in the Continuum because of his irrational behavior and embarrassing presence. They do give him a choice of where he can go and what he can be and he chooses to be a human and to go to the Enterprise. As he arrives (naked), Picard and the gang are trying to remedy a catastrophic event. The moon of a large planet has had its orbit decay and in about a day will hit the planet, leading to an ice age, tsunamis, earthquakes, and huge casualties. Unfortunately, the size of the moon keeps their tiny starship from manages any sort of adjustment. Picard implores Q to do something, but it truly isn't within his power. So they must do everything within their means to solve this while Q is prancing around, complaining about the food, the boredom. I wonder if he patterned his character after a Jewish American Princess. Not the greatest episode in the world, but still some fun.
