It Needs Purpose
4 July 2012 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

Expanding a mythology to a character needs to have purpose. It means that the story needs to have a point. It's not just being told or written or filmed because there need's to be an 11th episode to the 3rd season. I struggled with that in this episode.

Q is a great character; the all powerful nymph. But there's ways to tell good Q stories, and there's ways to tell bad Q stories. Stars exploding because of a Q civil war is a cool idea, but it's also something that you can't conclude in one episode. So, the story has inconsistencies, it struggles to come to the point, and it concludes too quickly. It's hard to take the episode seriously (yeah, I know, Q episodes are comedies), but it wasn't smart comedy. It felt like it was put together with not too many drafts after to make a better episode.

You don't bring in a cool character for the sake of bringing in a cool character. You bring a cool character into your story to tell a substantial plot. Voyager did that in other episodes, but not this one very well.
