This topic assumes that the rest of the continuum can't interfere, they don't count.

Are all the other omnipotent beings part of this fight? Kevin Uxbridge, for instance? If the other omnipotent beings count, I think they could outnumber Q.
Yes, it's literally every living being in Star Trek versus the main Q, with the other Q not willing or able to interfere. Even the tribbles are involved, though obviously they won't have any effect on the outcome.

Kevin Uxbridge was very powerful, but he wasn't omnipotent. If he were, then he could have dispatched of the Husnock quite easily, or transported his entire planet far from the warships, or made it invisible, etc. Why didn't he do these things?
Because his pacifism didn't break until it was all over. But I suppose, he was unable to undo the destruction of his colony except by creating illusions.

But if he were to team up with neer-seen others of his kind, Transfigurations guy, the 10,000 omnipotent TOS creatures, the Traveler, all the Caretakers, and all the energy beings we ever met, I think Q could be contained.
Those TOS creatures were obviously not omnipotent, just powerful to differing degrees.
