Editorial Reviews

Product Description

4-DVD set collects the favorite episodes featuring the popular character "Q."

Volume 3 in the Star Trek Fan Collective series focuses on the show's resident deity, Q, played with indignant mischief by John De Lancie. While previous Fan Collectives have taken votes to select which episodes around a certain theme would be included, Q makes things easy (the character never made things easy) by simply including all 12 episodes (two are double-length) in which he appeared. And because Q was especially fond of tormenting Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) and his crew, most of the episodes are from The Next Generation, including that series' first episode, Encounter at Farpoint. Subsequent episodes are "Hide and Q" in which the crew plays a deadly game; "Q Who," in which a temper tantrum throws the Enterprise into its first-ever encounter with the Borg (also included on the Fan Collective: Borg set); "Deja Q," in which the character becomes a normal human; "Qpid," in which Q tries to play matchmaker by turning Picard into Robin Hood; "True Q" in which Q reveals the truth about a mysterious young woman; "Tapestry," in which Picard shares a near-death experience with the godlike thorn in his side; and the series finale, "All Good Things…" Q also made brief stops in the first season of Deep Space Nine ("Q Less") and in Voyager. In "Death Wish," Q tries to help Captain Janeway (Kate Mulgrew) recover her male crew members after an encounter with another member of the Q Continuum, "The Q and the Grey," in which Q wants Janeway to bear his child; and the final season's "Q2," in which Q's son arrives to cause chaos, such as removing Seven of Nine's (Jeri Ryan) clothes. As with previous Fan Collective sets, the only new features (and in this case there are no other features) are text commentary on three episodes by Michael Okuda and Denise Okuda. --David Horiuchi

Misunderstood or just a god with a nasty sense of humor either way Q (the marvelous John de Lancie)was one of the highlights of "The Next Generation" and was such a good character that he was seamlessly incorporated into two other series. If this follows the course set with the other releases, we'll see probably 12 episodes. Here's the episode listing for each Q appearence as well the series it was drawn from.

The best of Q, however, truly is in "Star Trek: The Next Generation". In "Encounter at Farpoint Parts 1 & 2" Q puts humanity on trial for its arrogance and destructiveness. The Enterprise crew has one chance to redeem themselves--they must figure out a mystery involving "Farpoint" a station for the Federation that comes under attack by a mysterious alien race. The pilot also features a cameo by the late DeForest Kelley as Admiral McCoy in an amusing scene with Data.

The first season of "The Next Generation" was wildly uneven with some truly bad episodes alternating with some extremely good ones. "Hide & Q" straddles the line between these two extremes. While not the best it does offer de Lancie the chance to chew some scenery. Called in to help a mining colory, Q sets a test for Riker--he gives him the power of the Q and tempts him to use it to save his crewmates. In "Q Who" an enraged Q flings the Enterprise across the galaxy to test the crew against a new race they've never dealt with before--the Borg.

The third season featured two Q for the price of one. In "Deja Q" Q has been stripped of his power and made into a mortal. Q must prove his worth both to the Enterprise and to his the other Q (including Corbin Bernsen in a cameo as another member of the Q). This episode includes a text commentary.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good character, good performances June 11, 2006
I hated Q during TNG's run and avoided all his stories in reruns. So imagine my surprise when I found myself really enjoying this collection--it probably helped that I hadn't seen the Next Gen eps since they aired and the others not at all. The character of Q brought something to the next gen Star Treks that they lacked all too often--humor, unattractive character traits, selfishness: a humanity that other characters lacked sometimes, even though I loved TNG. Yet thanks to Q, we see a grumpy Worf, a grumpy Geordi, etc. Q's interactions with the regular cast is fun to watch--though we needed more Q and less Vash in Q-less (though I did like the character of Vash a lot). Seeing Suzy Plakson again is great, too, in the Q and the Grey, even if it's not a strong episode. Seeing Q interact with each of the three captains is fun, and the character arc for Q is interesting. John de Lancie does a really excellent job and he "gets" Star Trek as well as anyone.

Encounter at Farpoint and Hide and Q are a bit painful to watch--the cast was overacting so badly that it's a wonder that the show survived the first season--they are interesting for that reason alone. Q was the best thing in both episdoes. Q-Who is chilling and wonderful, and the Borg were at their best--they lost a bit of their menace with each subsequent appearance. Deja Q was very, very funny--better than I remembered. The Q-Geordi and Q-Data interaction is great. Q-pid is nearly as funny. True Q is a bit dull, but Tapestry is one of the best ever TNG episodes. All Good Things is fun if you ignore the plot holes that you can drive a truck through. As the commentary points out, Q-less, as one of the first DS9 eps, gives a wonderful look at the foundation of the DS-9 characters and watching Q interact with Sisko is great.

4.0 out of 5 stars Q Returns June 18, 2006
These lower priced boxed sets are a good way to review all your old favorites from the various trek series. You avoid two of the pitfalls found in the alternative of purchasing all individual seasons: firstly, even at a reduced price, you will end up spending considerably more on individual seasons; secondly, having a bookshelf devoted to startrek is not always socially the wisest course of action. For those who make the leap and fully indulge in their passion for Trek, I make no judgments. Personally, I would like to enjoy my sci-fi fix with a little bit more subtlety than a 28 season marathon in my room and few more dollars in my pocket.

The episodes chosen seem to capture the theme of each boxed set very well, and it would be nice to see a "Startrek: Classics" set with no particular theme, just those good episodes that were fun to watch. I like the 'Time Travel' Collection more than the 'Q' and `Borg' collections because the episodes seem to have a little more variety within that theme. The Next Generation episodes present a much broader spectrum of 'Q' and 'time travel' than than the 'Borg' collection manages.

Generally speaking, if I were going to purchase only one of these Fan Collectives, 'Q' would not be it (time travel is the best in my opinion); however, because I am a star trek geek, I bought more than one set, and I am enjoying re-viewing the shows I watched when I was younger. The 'Q' collection is pretty much self explanitory- every episode deals with the omnipotent being we all love to hate. So if thats what you want to watch, then this is the collection for you. If not, then don't buy it. Don't expect much new, if you've already spent a thousand dollars on all the complete seasons.

I will fault the selections for the overlap that is present in each theme. I'm not positive, but I don't think you can purchase any two sets without re-purchasing at least one episode.
