Q had the potential to be as sadistic as the Platonians, but he probably would have found that boring after a few seconds.

Once you've created an omnipotent opponent what do you do with him/her? I thought "Tapestry" was superb, but the rest of the Q stories just didn't quite work and they kind of contaminated the whole continuity, since there never really was a satisfactory answer as to what their origins were.
I thought Q, Who was one of the best TNG episodes and the best of the Q episodes.
Agreed. It's also the best Borg episode IMO.

Re: Almost, but not quite, "good" episodes

No real argument here about Q Who. As a standalone, it works fine. I'm just griping about the problems with the entire Q concept. But getting back on course, what are some more of the "near miss" episodes, that might have been "good" or "really good" or much more enjoyable if you prefer not to get into the labeling game (I respect that position since even "bad" Trek tends to entertain more than a lot of other shows).

Chekov's girlfriend was smokin' hot as well and if you've seen Phase II's "To Serve All My Days" you know that the years have been very kind to her!
She was indeed. But then most TOS ladies were very hot.
I'll have to look up "To Serve All My Days" and check it out.
