Star Trek: The Next Generation analysis of season 1 episode 9 (Hide and Q)

Our two favorite space daddies square off again in this week's wild, fun episode. We see Riker turn into a villain within mere moments of being given powers, we see Picard being super chill about it, and we learn the crew doesn't want those ill-gotten gifts!

The episode is not without its problematic moments; we pick apart Worf being gifted a woman, Tasha's "hot for Daddy" moment, and the show's endless obsession with Shakespeare.

But those are small moments amongst so many iconic others; Wesley's big meaty hands, Q making fun of Picard's "vessel" obsession, about a million quotable quotes and our hysteria over Picard's peepee and poopoo conundrum when locked on the Bridge.

All in all, a classic TNG romp and we are so here for it.
