This episode offers a small issue in that one option open to Amanda is never discussed or suggested -- as shown (or at least indicated and never revised) the Q have the power to remove the abilities of a Q -- this was shown as a substantial plot point of Déjà Q (03x13)
. If the Q considered it their responsibility to supervise Q beings, then one clear option which could have been offered to Amanda was to give up her Q powers. . This, in itself, is an interesting conundrum -- having been raised as a human, would someone actually give up the Q power having just discovered they had it? Riker did that, somewhat, in Hide and Q (01x10)
, but that's not quite the same thing -- Riker was given the powers when fully mature and experienced, and with a full life and friends to sacrifice, and so chose not to give up his life as he knew it. Amanda would be young and far more subject to the lure such powers would bring, and she did not have actual established life and friends (in the same manner as Riker did) who she would have had to give up to retain the powers.
