As the Enterprise visits Tegus 3 to host the Federation Archaeology Council's annual symposium (where Picard is to give the key-note lecture on the planet's enigmatic ruins, now forbidden to outsiders), Picard receives two surprise visits. His first, Vash, a flirtatious treasure hunter now on the council, who is displeased to learn he never mentioned her to any crew-member. His second (getting the coldest welcome), the almost almighty Q, who ridicules Picard's speech and decides to 'repay' saving his life and Continuum membership by transforming Picard and his officers into Robin Hood and his merry men. The challenge: to save the maid Marian (Vash) from her execution ordered for the next morning by Sir Guy of Gisbourne, with Q looking on as the high sheriff. Picard ventures her rescue from Nottingham castle, but soon finds his modern maid is no passive damsel in distress, even taking to the game far better than he.

Did You Know?
When Picard steps off the table into Vash's room the laces on his right sleeve are untied and hanging down. A few seconds later they are tied up in a bow knot. See more
Jean-Luc, it's wonderful to see you again. How about a big hug?

Well, don't just stand there, say something.
