Q's first Voyager episode, and Riker was in it! There was also another Q who wanted to kill himself. This is a good funny/sad episode.

5. A little uneasy about how de Lancie had aged by the time this episode had rolled around. Didn't look like his former self.


Loved the analogous representation of life in the continuum. Great depiction.


The scene I liked best though, and I REALLY wish they had done more with the possibilities weighing in with Janeway and co. The scene where de Lancie Q dangles the worm on the hook for Janeway. Rule in the continuum's favor, and *poof*, they'd be orbiting Earth again, reunited with their loved ones. I really wish they'd done more to show that this really would have been a serious temptation for Janeway. It seemed obvious to me that that HAD to come up at some point, and they should have dwelt more heavily on that.


But a 5 nonetheless.

I never liked the Q, but i liked this ep. So it earns a 5 from me. A great parable story about "assisted suicide" aka euthanasia. Strong ending and great acting make this one of Voyager's best eps.
