Storyline

The exasperated Continuum have permitted Q to deposit his bratty adolescent son, Junior, on Voyager with the hope that Janeway (the boy's godmother) can provide the parenting they lack. How Janeway and her crew can control an omniscient and all-powerful teenager hungering for malicious entertainment becomes an insurmountable problem, so Q removes his son's powers, leaving him fully human.

Quotes

Q2: Settling the planetoid predicament didn't take very long, so I used the rest of the time to convince the Cardassian to apologize for the Occupation of Bajor. How's that for order in the universe?

I sure would love to have Q2 remain on Voyager!
8 March 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is a fun episode that not only brings Q to Voyager but his son, Q2! Interestingly, the REAL son of actor John de Lancie (Keegan) plays the lad--and he's a lot of fun to watch. This is because Q2 is a total brat who EVERYONE soon hates! Q has decided to help the boy grow up by leaving him with the Captain--and soon Q2 shows that he's a nasty jerk! But, when his powers are stripped away (after all, the Continuum can only take so much), he quickly learns his lesson and becomes a bit less of a jerk!

Overall, this episode is good mindless fun--as are all the Q episodes. And, inexplicably, instead of just going with the experience and having a good time (as the experiences always end up working out fine and often even to the crew's advantage), they once again seem perturbed by Q and Q2's visit--at least initially. I say WELCOME them--they sure were welcome for me, as these shows always brighten up the show-- which, otherwise, can sometimes be a bit dreary.
