|Guest Cast :
||We get a minor demonstration of Q's amazing abilities in this episode. When he opens Vash's letter, he reads it upside down. Obviously this isn't on the scale of moving planets around or anything, but I find it interesting that the Q can read stuff any way up. Also, the creators really need to be more consistent about Data's physical speed and robustness. In 'We'll Always Have Paris' he was fast enough to dodge laser blasts. In 'First Contact' we find that he is bullet proof. In "The Naked Now" he claims that 'if you prick me, do I not leak?'. Well, in this episode Troi fires an arrow at Data. Not only does he fail to dodge it, the arrow comfortably pierces his bullet proof chest and completely fails to cause any leak.
