[DS9] Q-Less

DS9 Season 1, Episode 7 (Netflix: S1 E6): Q-Less

Rating: 2

If you are a big fan of Q and Vash you’ll want to watch this one but I found it pretty dull. The main plot was about an auction and mysterious power outages that I don’t care about. They use Q to lay out some differences between the Next Generation crew and the Deep Space Nine crew, but it’s all stuff that’s already been well established. Overall it just seems like Q doesn’t have much of a place in the Deep Space Nine setting.
This episode originally aired the same week as the TNG episode “Face of the Enemy” (TNG 6.14), the one where Troi dresses up as a Romulan.
Notably, Q shows up on TNG the next week in the excellent episode “Tapestry”

This is the only appearance of Q in Deep Space Nine

and Vash! … When they find Vash on the Ganges, O’Brien asks how she got to the Gamma Quadrant. Vash says, “A friend dropped me off.” Then O’Brien says,  “Oh”.  Like he’s making polite conversation.

yeah we get it Bashir, you like women

There are some mildly funny parts.

Did you guys know that Sisko is different from Picard?? Thanks to this episode, now you do.

The crew kept wondering what was causing the power outages but I knew from the beginning that they were caused by a giant space manta ray. Sooo predictable.

    What is it with Q helping dislodge stuck space sea creatures in the first season of Star Trek franchises? Did he help a space octopus in Voyager, or a space flounder in Enterprise?

      Someone has to look out for the space sea creatures!

    We just started DS9 after finishing TNG & Voyager (still heartbroken that Voyager is all done…) and I enjoyed this episode. Not too bad. But, doesn’t matter if it’s TNG, VOY, or apparently DS9, the 1st seasons are roooooough.
