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

Betty Muramoto ...


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...

Have A Cigar! And Enjoy.
9 September 2007 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Fun In Space, great fun. Q and humanity. Q is punished to become the thing he both dislikes and adores. It is an episode on the light comedy stuff. The main story is of no excellence, a Japan like space people are under the threat of being crushed by a lunar asteroid. But then our friend Q makes an entry, and the story takes a twist. Is he as he use to be or is what he says he is. Human. The rest is investigation into what he wants, likes and enlightenment comes to the one who seeks with a pure heart. Q then gets pursued by a space being that he has molested, and he seeks the security of Enterprise and Picard.

Also note the friendship between Q And Data, Data makes a lot of friends in this season. And yet again I am touched by the ending, tears are running,, but with laughter this time. 'lol).

The teleplay is genuine fun, and John de Lancie is great. But how can Riker always be that wrong. 8 out of 10 Yes, entertaining to the last. D.
