Re: I hate the Q character, but admit he was funny as hell in QLess
Well half of DS9's first season was dedicated to pointless and unnecessary appearances by chars from TNG to bring over the fanbase. Q's a great character when he's in the higher power trying to help, goad humanity along mode. When he just shows up for general mischief, like in this episode, it gets old quick.
