Christopher i wonder if the DTI is worried about the Q.

Do they have an agreement with them?
The DTI are worried about a lot of civilizations and entities that they have no influence over. It's a big universe, and the timeline could be altered at any moment by someone halfway across the galaxy, and the DTI would be able to do nothing about it. The Q are just one part of that overall problem. That's one of the realities that makes the DTI's work so maddening, as the novel discusses. To paraphrase Brigadier Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart, they simply do the best they can.
