Storyline

As a result of her academic achievement, a young intern by the name of Amanda Rogers joins the Enterprise. Unknown to anyone however is that she has telekinetic powers and the ability to create project just by thinking about it. When the warp core's containment field fails, Amanda is able to contain it and return the reaction chamber to normal. Much to Captain Picard's and the rest of the crew's dismay, Q suddenly appears. It was Q who set off the engine fault to test her powers and confirm what he thought - that she is a Q. He's quite adamant that Amanda be trained in how to use her powers after which she would join the continuum. She refuses to go with him but as he teaches her to use her powers, she decides to use them to spend some time with Commander Riker with she has become enamored. Picard obtains important information about the death of her parents but Q offers her a choice: to join the continuum or to live among humans and never use her powers. Written by garykmcd

Q's Dilemma
25 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Q turns up like a bad penny. On board the Enterprise is Amanda, who is shown immediately to have some interesting powers (retrieving and sending back her pets to some unknown place--possibly like the cloud). She is a bright, pretty 18 year old who is newly arrived from Star Fleet Academy, working with Dr. Crusher. Q informs the crew that she is Q and is being observed by the masters to see if she should live or die. She is the daughter of adoptive parents because her actual parents were destroyed by the Continuum. Q asks to be her to allow him to be her tutor. She is caught between her need to be human and the powers that she has inherited. She develops a connection with Beverly and tries to sort out all he implications--a decision which will eventually determine what she will become. This is what makes this episode provocative. Q is his usually obnoxious self, treating the girl with a heavy hand (she seems to have powers that are a step above his). What would we do if we found ourselves with these gifts.
