A enjoyable episode, primarily because of the fact Wesley is stabbed.

 

There's no way that Riker would have turned down god-like abilities, but I can forgive that.

 

The "gifts" that Riker gives the crew are interesting. I can understand that Geordi wants to see, but why did Riker give Worf "Xena Warrior Klingon"? Surely if Worf wanted companionship, making him human would have been a better idea since he could have his pick of about 500 women on the Enterprise.

 

Also, when Wesley was made years older, why did he look completely different?

 

I mean I know people change when they mature, but not THAT much.

 

Beverley Crusher looked shocked when her son turned into frickin FLASH GORDON!!!!!

 

Also, why didn't Riker give Picard hair? :P

 

I give this episode a rating of 1, which is surprising for a "Q" based episode.

Great Episode! I loved how they actually got the place that they were going to at the start of the episode! I've never seen that before in any episodes! Of course, if i was riker, i would have not accepted the god powers, because they would corrupt you, buts thats just me. All in all, its worth the 4 i gave it.

Other than the whiny Tasha Yar being sent to the penalty box and the vicious animal people, a good episode if only for Q.

another good episode that makes Riker wonder if he'd like to be Q. Overall an interesting episode, but every Q episode is.

5, just because I love all the Q episodes. De Lancie is so incredible with the part, and yeah, Wesley gets stabbed, but the dialogue in the final scene is riveting. Given the Q's ability to generate reality, so interesting that they'd consider his gifts mere illusions.

1. Q's vicious animal things...

 

2. Wesely dies horribly...

 

3. Q...

 

4. Q as Soong Type Andriod...

 

5. Worf gets a kinky girlfriend...

 

That all adds up to 5 Stars from me!
