It does make it very difficult to place the characters and/or the U.S.S. Enterprise in jeopardy in the story when a character who is omnipotent is included in the story.
Q has lost his powers, and restrained or refused from using his powers. He also has "superiors."
Been done.


And what if there's something out there stronger than he? What if the continuum faced a threat?
A story where the primary threat is to a guest star rather than the leads? Might fly in the series, but not a movie.
