Trekathon 254: Q-Less (DS9)

June 16th, 2010

Q comes to visit, hijinks ensue.

This isn’t that bad an episode, but its not really much of a Deep Space 9 episode. Most of the plot development is dominated by Q, Vash and Quark, with the main crew relegated to not finding out what was going on until the last minute. The interaction between Q and Vash isn’t terrible, but there isn’t enough chemistry to carry a whole episode. And without Picard the Q thing simply doesn’t have much resonance.

Great trek moment: tine first (and possibly only) onscreen use of the word ‘technobabble’ in Star Trek.

254 down, 483 to go.
