In Q-Squared, by Peter David, Trelane, (The Squire of Gothos - TOS episode 17), is shown to be a member of the Continuum, as well as "General" Trelane's parents. Trelane's parents intervened at the last moment to save Kirk's life, when Trelane was about to run him through with a sword.
I'm glad he went that route. I remember when I first saw Q in TNG, I thought "That's got to be a member of Trelane's race." I was glad to see I wasn't alone.
