What are your top 3 Q episodes?
 
..and I mean from all series, where Q made quite an impact in only 12 appearances. I still think of him (it) as an STNG character though.

My top 3:

1. Q Who-A slight edge over All Good Things. The episode was a milestone and very well written.
2. All Good Things..-The best show finale ever.
3. Deja Q-Not far down the list at all, this episode was notable for it's increased humor, an extremely will written story and critical acclaim in the mainstream media, which was still slow in coming at the time for STNG. It was poignant, ironic, and succeeded in making Q a sympathetic character.

HONORABLE mention: Voyager's "Death Wish" -This episode was fantastic, all sorts of moral and ethical questions with a better exploration of the Q.

All Good Things - The perfect TNG finale

Tapestry - This was when Q didn't come across as evil or mischivous, but more along the lines of a teacher

Death Wish - Great character study of Q as a whole.

Honorable mention to True Q, just because I find that episode really underrated. People say it was boring, but I didn't think so. I thought it did a great job shining light on the Q as a whole, before Death Wish came along and expanded on that.

Just goes to show how good some of the Q episodes really are..Tapestry left out of my top 4, who'd have thunk it. It's also really good.

Q-Less would suck were it not for Sisko punching Q. That elevated it from the scrap heap. :lol:

I even forgot about Hide and Q, a pretty worthless Q episode...except for the Picard and Q ready room scene near the middle, pure gold that was.

I prefer Q episodes where Q has his powers throughout. Q Who is a great episode.

All Good Things...
Q Who?
Déjà Q

Q, in TNG was often portrayed as a teacher or trickster, warning the Federation about the Borg, getting Picard to realize his mistakes as a young man made him the Captain he is.

Q Who
Deja Q (just for the fact that he gave Data the ability to laugh, however briefly)
Tapestry (interesting backstory for Picard)
