Re: How many God like people/races were there in TOS exactly?

I didn't mind the Organians or the Metrons, as they were like older folks annoyed that some kids had taken up with fighting in their front yard. Trelane was just a kid playing with some new toys. I thought the concepts were interesting and "plausible". I don't mind the idea of aliens with god-like powers, but I did get bored with the theme of such beings (like the Q) simply putting humans on trial to judge if they should be confined to Earth or perhaps being destroyed, etc,. That concept bored me and I had trouble seeing how the Q wouldn't just arbitrarily do what they want. I eventually grew to like de Lancie's Q, but I didn't like the "On Trial" plot line.
