Death Wish.
When Voyager premiered, it seemed a given that the fan-favorite Q would turn up on the series. But the producers were cautious in using John de Lancie’s character yet again. As loved as Q was, he always ran the risk of being a one-verse song played over and over—a danger highlighted by his single appearance on Deep Space Nine. The door to Q’s return was finally opened by an unexpected hand, that of Michael Piller’s son, Shawn. Having overheard his dad pondering the problem, he began pitching the idea that became “Death Wish.” And from this idea grew one of the most poignant Q episodes in all of Star Trek.
In this episode of The Ready Room we’re joined by Charlynn Schmiedt, Suzanne Abbott, and Scott Hertzog of The SciFi Diner to discuss how Q’s character grew through this story that tackles some very difficult and divisive issues, including assisted suicide, treatment of prisoners, and the rights of individuals versus the good of society.
In our news segment we take a look at Cross Cult’s new covers for Kirsten Beyer’s Full Circle and Unworthy, discuss how Data may have gotten his Federation citizenship (as described by “The Measure of a Man” writer Melinda Snodgrass), and ponder a proposed perfect RetKHAN to Star Trek Into Darkness.
