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

What is the definition of a Q?
29 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

ST:TNG:132 - "True Q" (Stardate: 46192.3) - this is the 6th episode of the 6th season of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

While en route to an ecologically devastated planet called Tagra IV, the Enterprise welcomes Amanda, who is a young honor student chosen to study onboard the ship. However, when she single-handedly saves the ship from destruction, she reveals to have the powers of Q.

Soon Q (John de Lancie in another hilarious appearance) himself appears and announces that she is a Q. Now she must choose whether to be human or become a Q. And of course, Q has a few tricks up his sleeve too.

Trivia note: Dr. Crusher mentions Nurse Ogawa. And watch out for Dr. Crusher turning into a dog!
