Troi: "They made you human as part of your punishment." Q: "No, it
was my request. I could've to exist as a Marcophian sea lizard, or
a Belzoidian flea. Anything I wished, as long as it was *mortal*!
And since I had only a fraction of a second to mull, I chose this,
and asked them to bring me here." Troi: "Why?" Q: "Because in the
universe, you're the closest thing I have to a friend, Jean- Luc."
