Reviewer : Indefatigable Rating : 3
Review : Another decent attempt. 'Voyager Q' is a good deal less annoying than 'TNG Q', and it was a reasonable story. I'm not entirely sure that the American Civil War setting was a good idea (apart from anything else, Indiana is hardly southern). From an American point of view, the Revolutionary War would have made a bit more sense, but I'm not American, so I can't really judge. The resolution worked well-enough, and it fitted together OK. Once again, a whatchable episode.

Review : I agree that Q definitely comes across better in Voyager. He's lost his darker edge and become more humorous, more likeable. While he's definitely annoying, this is actually a good thing - the chaos he causes tends to be funny and based on his affection for Janeway, rather than the embarrassing singing and dancing of TNG. It seems strange that Q was considered an ultimate threat in many TNG episodes but his contempt for humanity and his apparent desire to do harm seems to have mellowed by the time he starts bugging Janeway. "The Q and the Grey" is heavily Americanised and won't be relevant at all to those living outside the USA (in the same way several baseball-related DS9 episodes will mystify and bore the international audience), but when all is said and done I enjoyed the episode as a diversion from the serious stuff.
