You could have the Romulan Commander become part of your crew!

This is a mad idea...
Perhaps but worth at least a look at. Too bad Nero did not possess his wisdom.

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?

That actually sounds pretty cool! Not weird at all.

Oh, when I say a mad idea: I mean that I really like it!

Logic is like statistics. Depending on how you approach it everything could be made to be logical.

Interesting...Why do you say Troi wasn't a good counselor? I always thought it was great having someone who could "read" emotions and tell if someone were telling the truth or not.

But Guinan (who was probably not actually telepathic) did a better job than Troi!
