RBDS9 006 – Q-Less (S1E6)
Welcome to our Rebinge of Star Trek DS9: Q-Less
Episode six of season 1 of DS9, entitled Q-Less, brings in some classic TNG characters. Q and Vash visit the station and pretty much everything goes badly. Quark and Vash form a skeezy team to auction off some Gamma Quadrant artifacts to the dumbest rich people Quark knows. Meanwhile the station is getting slowly sucked to its doom into the nearby wormhole. Is Q to blame?
Vash arrives at DS9 with a very large sack of precious artifacts from the other side of the wormhole. The team is less interested in her baubles than in how she even got over there, but she’s not talking. Bashir and Quark are up to their usual tricks with the new visitor. Sisko is less concerned about Vash than he is about the sudden appearance of Q. What does he want? Is he responsible for the weird power drains happening around the station? Odo is pretty sure everyone is up to something (they are) and Q and Sisko have an epic boxing match. This is a weird episode (well Q is involved, so that’s expected).
