Intelligence reportBitch, bitch, bitch, bitch, bitch!
Those Q sure know how to bitch. even better, they bring out the bitchiness in everyone else! It's a bitchy episode with lots of laffs, and some bitching. Probably the funniest (and bitchiest) Voyager episode yet. See it!
Oh yes, the storyline (a continuation of Death wish - in which Quinn committed quicide - hee hee quicide... geddit?) is interesting, too, even if the plot is full of holes. And it's still centred on the USA as if that were the only culture on Earth. (The Q and the grey is a pun which refers to the colours of the uniforms worn by the opposing sides of the USAmerican civil war - the blues and the greys - hence the way the continuum is presented.)
Suzie Plakson is, of course, the one who played K'Ehleyr, Worf's late hunka hunka burning love and Alexander's mother.
