But they're not omnipotent. Quinn said so.
... I'd think twice before taking him at his word.
Q was unaware than Sisko was going to bitch slap him to the floor.
The Sisko-Fist remains the Federation's best defense against demigods.
I think there are three explanations for why Sisko was able to touch Q:
1. The most obvious reason, is that Q mearly played it up for drama, and was uninjured.
2. Q is more vulnerable in his humanoid form.
3. My personal favorite reason, is that Sisko's half Prophet heritage makes him effective against the Q.
