This week, it’s much ado about nothing aboard the Enterprise when our regularly scheduled Star Trek: The Next Generation gets preempted by an episode of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding. But when Q arrives to observe the phenomenon of human love, he attracts the attention of Lwaxana Troi, and despite the better judgment of literally everyone else, she begins to fall for him. Soon enough, frustration gives way to chaos as a tiff between the young betrothed couple escalates into an all-out blood feud. Will we ever get to see what Guinan can do to Q? Which Star Trek novel has the strongest “dialogue you can hear in your head” factor? Exactly who was clamoring for a “Wesley Crusher gets a sex slave” subplot? All this and more in Q-in-Law, or, The Taming of the Q.
