Storyline

While Voyager investigates what appears to be a typical comet, the crew accidentally releases a member of the Q Continuum who has been imprisoned in the ship's console for over 300 years to prevent him from committing suicide. He then claims asylum on the ship, which leaves Captain Janeway to decide whether he should go back in to confinement or whether to grant his request for asylum, which will give him endless opportunities to commit suicide.

Quotes

[Quinn has - apparently - made Q disappear]
Captain Kathryn Janeway: What did you do to him?
Quinn: Nothing. He's still there in the 24th century. I just took the rest of us to an old hiding place of mine.
[the crew is analyzing the data coming in]
Lieutenant Tuvok: Captain, based on our readings, it appears we've been transported back in time to the birth of the universe.
Quinn: *Very* old hiding place.

Yes, it must totally suck to be immortal and have ultimate power...
15 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

After making many appearances in "Star Trek: The Next Generation" and one on "Star Trek: Deep Space 9", it's now John De Lancie's turn to appear as the irrepressible Q on "Star Trek: Voyager". He'll appear two more times on "Voyager".

The show begins with Q and Q Too (Gerrit Graham) appearing on Voyager. It seems that Q Too has been imprisoned on a meteor the ship has discovered. Why was he imprisoned? Well, the Continuum thinks he's crazy because he wants to kill himself. While this DOES sound crazy that a member of the Continuum would want to die, the ultimate tedium of his existence is explored in the show--and Janeway is allowed to make the decision for the Continuum--whether to allow him to die or whether he'll once again return to his lonely prison. But, to muck up the subsequent hearing, Q isn't above trying to bribe the Captain with what everyone wants on the ship--to return home.

Like almost all Q episodes, this one is enjoyable and rather fun despite the suicide angle. You also get a brief cameo from Jonathan Frakes as Commander Riker--which is a plus.
