The other members of the Q continuum kicked you out.
Not all of the Q are alike; some are almost respectable.
Ready and willing. Able to serve. What would you do? Would you start as an ordinary crewman? What task is too menial for an entity?
Sir, do you mock me?
Not at all. That's the last thing I would do. You, by definition, are part of our charter. Our mission is to go forth to seek out new and different life forms, and you certainly qualify as one of the most unique I've ever encountered. To learn about you is, frankly, provocative. But you're next of kin to chaos.
Captain, at least allow me to present my argument.
After our last encounter I was asked to leave the Q Continuum. Since then I’ve been wandering vaguely. Bored really, my existence with out purpose. Then I remembered all the good times I had with you.
The good times? The first time we met you, you put us on trial for the crimes of humanity.
Of which you were exonerated.
The next time we saw you, you asked me to join the Q Continuum.
A big mistake that you didn’t accept my offer. More and more I realized that here, here is where I want to be. Think of the advantages. Now I neither expect nor require any special treatment. And if necessary, although I can’t imagine why, I will renounce my powers and become as weak and as incompetent as all of you.
No? Captain in fairness let me try. I deserve at least that much.
In fairness? You disrupt this ship, you kidnap the Captain.
I add a little excitement, a little spice to your lives and all you do is complain. Where is your adventurous spirit, your imagination? Think Picard, think. Think of the possibilities.
Simply speaking, we don't trust you.
Oh. Well, you may not trust me, but you do need me. You’re not prepared for what awaits you.
