The indefatigable Q appears again, still not convinced that humans are a race worth saving and wanting to test them yet again. This time he focuses on Commander Riker and sets out to prove that mankind will not do the right thing when the opportunity presents itself.

Picard knew that the experiment would fail and wins his wager with Q. Written by
