Trekathon 448: The Q and the Grey (VOY)

July 27th, 2012

Q wants to end a civil war by having a baby with Janeway.

The idea of a civil war in the Q continuum is an interesting one. The idea of introducing a change such as reproduction as the solution works. But the execution just doesn’t bring things together. We’re told that what we see in the Continuum is only an imperfect projection of a more complex world. But we never get any sense at all that this is any different from a Holodeck adventure. It simply makes no sense at all that the Voyager crew could fight effectively. The previous Voyager visit at least made things feel a bit more ‘odd’.

Q is fun as always, and Suzie Plakson is always fun. But the overall structure just didn’t work very well.

448 down, 289 to go.
