The solution: Bring in humans to act as his pest control and they will teach the growing races to stand up on their own. The problem is that Picard will ask too many questions, Sisko would (If he were in the human realm) Just hit him again, and Janeway would rip him a new singularity....

So he chooses Starfleet Officers who are already dead and revives them and gives them a ship without explaining anything to them, confident they will do what he wants naturally as they pass through on their way home. (This has the added advantage that he doesn't have to ever admit they ever did anything for him....)

So in this bizarre situation, what destroyed or lost ship and what deceased officers to man it should Q pick for this?
John Harriman and the Enterprise B. That way you can write an end for the B. Also has the advatage of being (at least partially) in a Trek time we haven't experienced, the early 24th century.

You could even have the ability of Q to take them out of time, and put them back at the end with no memory of the events, so that it does not screw up any other Q story.
