Seems unlikely that a guest star playing a Q would be payed the same as an extra ( even one appearing in 5 episodes), so I'll with Q and make more money. More than likely a memorable guest shot would be better for my career and the fans would remember the character. So convention appearances and more money! Five episode extra is Guy Fleegman territory.

Is this a trick question? Why would one want to play an extra when you can play a colorful alien super-being?
The question assumes that you get paid the same. Don't try to be smart!
It's not a trick question. I thought some people might prefer doing minor things over a span of five episodes rather than appearing in just the one episode.
