When Q lost his powers in the episode "Deja Q", he never got them back. Three years later, Q is living aboard a starbase, working as a scientific advisor to the Federation in exchange for protection from his enemies... and about to kill himself in despair at what his life has become. Aside from Q himself and a flashback sequence aboard the Enterprise, all characters are mine.
Additional note, now that I've updated the ratings for Part IV: This is not a story about sex, but sex is part of being human, so I don't do maidenly fadeouts. It's also not a story about violence, but when part of the point is that a guy is a magnet for Very Bad Things happening because his bad behavior from the past several million years is catching up with him, I'm not going to pull punches there either. I've updated the rating to Mature Audiences because of Part IV, which contains sex and violence, but most of that stuff doesn't start showing up until then.
