TNG Season 4 Episode 20
Air Date: April 22nd, 1991

Captain Picard has been asked to give a speech at a architecture summit at Tagus III. One of the delegates is Vash, the woman Picard had a relationship and adventure with on his vacation to Risa. But Picard is a private man and didn't tell anyone on the Enterprise about Vash.

Q shows up and tells Picard that he owes him for saving his life when he was stripped of his powers and vows to repay him. When he learns about Vash and how Picard was treating her, he decides to create a scenario to help Picard and Vash's relationship. He transports the bridge crew to Sherwood forest. Data is Friar Tuck, Riker is John Little, and Worf as Will Scarlet. Q himself is the Sheriff of Nottingham.

Picard gets captured trying to rescue Vash and his merry men show up for the rescue. A grand battle entails and Picard saves Vash. Q returns them all to the Enterprise. Q takes an interest in Vash and offers to take her around the galaxy to places she never dreamed of.

Every episode with Q so far has been great and this one is no different.


"That's the problem with being such a well-known liar. Even when I'm telling the truth, no one believes me." - Vash

"I've just been paid a visit from Q." - Captain Picard
"Q? Any idea what he's up to?" - Cmdr. Riker
"He wants to do something nice for me." - Captain Picard
"I'll alert the crew." - Cmdr. Riker

"She's found a vulnerability in you, a vulnerability I've been looking for for years. If I had known sooner, I would've appeared as a female." - Q

"Sir, I protest. I am not a merry man." - Lt. Worf
