Re: The OFFICIAL STNG Next Level Bluray watch and review thread

It's a running theme in the series and the series "arc" if you will. The show was about how much potential for good humanity has and the show was about "proving that" to The Q, as he said at the end of the series "The trial never ended, no verdict was reached."

So putting Q into the pilot essentially set the tone and arc for the series and, yes, it always seemed that Q had an active interest in Picard and the rest of the crew to see them at their best potential. Even Data remarks at this at some point suggesting that Q was never very adversarial towards the Enterprise crew but saw them more "as pets."
