I suppose there could be some kind of time travel aspect to Quinn's punishment, but why would they bother?

||"I am curious. Have the Q always had an absence of manners? Or is it the result of some natural evolutionary process that comes with omnipotence?" - Tuvok to Quinn
Janeway discovers a member of the Q continuum imprisoned in the centre of a comet nucleus. The Q, known as Quinn, is on the run from the rest of his kind because he decided to commit suicide out of boredom. When the continuum send a representative to recapture Quinn, Janeway must hold a hearing to decide his fate.
A great episode.
