Trivia

The title uses the American Civil War theme and plays upon the color of the North and South's uniforms, Blue and Grey. The title is also a reference to the Civil War poem "The Blue and the Gray" by Francis Miles Finch (1827-1907) and several television programs and movies with the same title. See more »

Goofs

Q tells Janeway that no pair of Q had ever mated and/or procreated. But way back in Star Trek: The Next Generation: True Q he was searching for a young woman who was the offspring of two Q members who had gone native on Earth. See more »

Quotes

Neelix: [to Q] Do you want to know what Captain Janeway likes about me? I'll tell you: I am respectful, loyal, and most of all, sincere. And those are qualities which someone like you could never hope to possess.

Silly but enjoyable fluff
18 February 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is what I would call a slight episode, that's for sure. The plot really does nothing to advance the overall theme of the show and is one you could easily skip. Now I am NOT saying you should skip it--it's enjoyable and silly fun.

When the show begins, Q unexpectedly arrives and tries to woo Janeway into being the carrier of his seed. Yep, Q wants to make love to the Captain so that he can have a child! Naturally, his motives are far more complicated than just a desire for a booty call, and the Captain is having none of this. However, through the course of the show, she also comes to realize that perhaps something like this is necessary, as there's a civil war brewing in the Continuum and perhaps a child might heal the rift.

This is a silly little show--one that you'll either enjoy (if you like the Q characters) or you'll probably find annoying. All I know is that I like these shows and they are a welcome relief from the ultra-seriousness of most episodes of "Voyager".
