So when I walked into Half-Price books earlier this mont, I returned to the Star Trek shelf and simply picked up all the ones that had " Q " in their title.
With thi being acknowledge, if you 've seen the Q episodes in TNG, DS9, and Voyager, you ca pretty much be able to writ the book regardless of whether you 've read he irst two.
What Picard and Co. do n't understand is that the barrier is a prison of sorts, protecting the galaxy from a Q-Like creature named 0.
Q sweeps Picard back in time to show him firsthand how disastrous breaching the barrier will be, leaving his wife ( Mrs Q) and his wif ( q) aboard the ship.
While Picard and Q are off in flashback land, the Calamarian ( who you might remember from " TNG: Deja Q ") are trying to murder Riker& Co. And exposure to the galactic barrier is taking its toll on every empath and telepath aboard the ship.
As the crew struggles to survive, the Bajorean scientist ( Faal) finally manages to breach the galactic barrier.Back in the flashback Picard agrees that Yeah, maybe messing around with forces beyond human comprehension IS N'T such a crash-hot idea and Q brings them back to the present.
At that point, there 's to little the mortals in the story an do, though Picard does try to provide distractions as 0 chases Q all over the ship playing some fucked up God Version of the Most Dangerous Game.
Mrs. Q, again, ca n't really help since she 's busy trying to save q from a mad scientist.
