Oh my Continuum, you guys! The Borg are here! THE BOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGG!
Q kidnaps Picard and a shuttle and begs to become a member of the Enterprise, saying he’s been “asked to leave” the Q Continuum. Which, OK, but he still has all his powers? Powers enough to kidnap a shuttle and Picard, and return them, and then fling the Enterprise 7,000 light years away and back again?
Guinan gets a backstory! The Borg nearly wiped out her entire race, and Q seems to be afraid of her, which is awesome. Q spins the Enterprise way off course and, rather than listen to Guinan, Picard decides to explore a little, and WHOOPS! Borg! The Borg are scary. They are unstoppable. And Q knows it, and it forces Picard to accept Q’s help. But not before letting Riker, Data, and Worf beam over to a Borg ship, because I’m like 100% certain he wants the three of them to die.
