A nice fun comedy episode, brilliantly put together.


Very imaginative and superbly performed.


Q was a riot in this episode and yet again teaching Picard an important lesson.


This time, he taught him that he needs to love and not be so rigid and cold.


Rating = 5

A humorous Q episode where he tries to "help" Picard by putting him into the role of Robin Hood.


Memorable Quotes:

"Without your assistance on our last encounter I would never have survived. I would have taken my own life but for you."

"We all make mistakes."


- Q and Picard



"I suppose we could travel back in time. You could see what Tagus was like 2 billion years ago. They really knew how to party back in those days."

"My answer is still no. My lecture will have to stand on its own. And now, will you please leave my ship!"

"You are simply the most impossible person to buy a gift for!"


- Q and Picard



"Well don't just stand there, say something."

"Get out of my chair!"

"And I was hoping for something more along the lines of "Welcome back Q, it's a pleasure to see you again, my old friend." "

"We're not friends!"

"You wound me, mon capitan."


- Q and Picard



"Nice legs... for a human."


- Worf, of Vash



"Sir, I protest. I am not a merry man!"


- Worf



"Some other time Q, right now, I have other matters to attend to."

"Oh yes, your speech. I read it, it's dull, plodding, pedantic, much like yourself."


- Picard and Q





- Worf, After smashing Geordi's lute, a parody of "Animal House"



"I've just been paid a visit from Q."

"Q? Any idea what he's up to?"

"He wants to do something nice for me."

"I'll alert the crew."


- Picard and Riker



"She's found a vulnerability in you... a vulnerability that I've been looking for for years. If I had known sooner, I would have appeared as a female."


- Q, to Picard



"I am not from Sherwood Forest."


- Picard, to Sir Guy



Background Information:

Jennifer Hetrick made her second of three appearances as Vash. She appears again in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode, "Q-Less".


During the filming of this episode, Jonathan Frakes injured his head and had to be taken to the hospital. However, due to the rush, he was taken in his Robin Hood-era clothes.


Ironically, Marina Sirtis and Gates McFadden were the only members of the cast that were trained in sword fighting, but only the men were allowed to use swords. (TNG Season 4 DVD Bonus Features)


Clive Revill (Sir Guy of Gisbourne) appeared in both an episode of Star Trek and a Star Wars film. He supplied the voice of Emperor Palpatine in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, although in the DVD release he was replaced by Ian McDiarmid, who played the Emperor in all the other movies.


The original setting of this episode was to be Camelot, although this was changed to Sherwood Forest to capitalize on the popularity of Robin Hood at the time, thanks to the release of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. (ST: TNG Companion)


Patrick Stewart would later portray King Richard in the film Robin Hood: Men in Tights as a parody of Sean Connery's portrayal in the aforementioned Prince of Thieves.


Q's statement to Vash that she's "...good. Very, very good" would be repeated to her verbatim by Quark in the DS9 episode "Q-Less".

I gave it a four...I always love Q episodes, but this didn't focus enough on Q and focused too much on--*gags*--Picard and Vash for my liking.
