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.

Our amazing intro and outro music was created by the supremely talented Trevor Andrew Hamer. If you'd like to work with Trevor or see more of his work, you can find him on: Instagram | YouTube
