Re: Episode of the Week: 2x13 "Time Squared"

I've been on holiday so I'm well behind on this rewatch. Just wanted to pop in here to make a few points of my own.

1. Knowing the Q backstory now makes the whole episode make ALOT more sense. A few lines of dialogue from Picard, Riker and Troi nearly spell this out so from now on I will choose to believe he was behind the events here even though the writers never explicitly said so on screen.
2. Great character moments.
3. Some good references to continuity - The Traveller, Doctor Manheim.
4. That scene in the shuttle bay at the end with "Future Picard" and O'Brien. I kept thinking to myself - O'Brien doesn't know! He thinks his Captain is dead! (having signalled for a Doctor before dying). They could have had alot of fun with that scene. Have O'Brien think his Captain is dead for a couple of episodes before bumping into him and thinking he's seen a ghost!
5. That vortex effect was one of my favourites from the original run. I think HTV have butchered it. I'd love to have seen what CBS did with it - doesn't it appear again sometime during TNG's run?...

P.S. I heard somewhere that Q was intended to be behind all of this!
One day soon, man is going to be able to harness incredible energies, energies that could ultimately hurl us to other worlds in... some sort of spaceship.

I didn't like the characterization of Picard (either one). The whimpering/confused time lagged Picard didn't sit well with me.
