Funny thing, the new A-Team movie was on tv a few days ago, and the scene where they were about to bust Murdock out of the nuthouse was on. Funny scene, so I kept watching. As a diversion, the rest of the team sent a movie to screen on a wall, to keep everyone busy. And I couldn't help but notice one of the 'actors' listed in the credits of that movie: Reginald Barclay.
Good movie. You will undoubtedly also have noticed, during Murdoch's electroshock scene, who one of the doctors overseeing the procedure was.

The problem with using Q in a movie is that he's so powerful, any situation involving him is likely to be over too quickly to stretch out into a feature film.
Yeah, though they could have made a movie version of Q-Squared or something similar in which he isn't the problem, but rather the one asking for help.

I do think they missed an opportunity with Q after Worf came aboard DS9, even if it had been during one of their tangents off station on the Defiant.

Barclay was able to fit into the crew on TNG which was a personal accomplishment given his issues, I think he would have had a harder time on Deep Space 9 and its enviroment.

I was never a fan of Barclay in his earliest appearances, but he grew on me much later. The fact the actor playing him was once known as Howlin' Mad Murdock was not lost on me.

I loved Hollow Pursuits, but I didn't think too highly of his later episodes. With that said, I was happy he was given a cameo in FC.

Uhm, no. There's nothing wrong with wanting to see your favorite characters carried over. Geez people....

The introduction of the character was very disturbing - wrongthink is bad! Lustful thoughts? You're not pretty enough to have lustfull thoughts! Privacy? What's that?
Sadly, 20 years later, we're well down that road.
One thing I never understood is why Troi never felt his attraction toward her. I know it's just the writers ignoring her "empathic" abilities for the sake of the story, but it's still annoying.

Far from the only time that Deanna's abilities had a blind spot or otherwise let her down.

Re: Who Else Loved Lieutenant Barclay?

Q didn't have the kind of onscreen chemistry with Sisko that he had with Picard or Janeway. All Sisko wanted to do was punch Q in the face...otherwise Sisko wanted nothing to do with him. At least Picard and Janeway sort of enjoyed sparring with Q. Sisko would have none of it.

As for Barclay, I totally identified with that guy. Barclay was much more realistic than any other character we've seen, IMHO. At least Barclay had faults. He wasn't the ultra-perfect type that Gene was always trying to put out there.
Q was a character that was meant as a foil for Picard's stuffiness and self righteous smugness. He was a being that was so powerful, that even Picard with his underlying self righteousness, was forced to bow once in a while to Q. Janeway fits that profile also, because she was basically female Picard, even down to the Rambo antics.

Sisko on the other hand was a very angry character, and he's damn lucky Q found his over the top uncontrolled anger amusing, otherwise he could have just turned him into a terallian amoeba permanently.

Q is like a childhood bully, in a way. He didn't mess with Sisko because Sisko fought back hard. Sisko kicked Q's ass. Bullies don't like that.

Indeed. She was walking around that ship in a catsuit that left little to the imagination; maybe we're supposed to believe that the ship was peopled by a bunch of eunuchs, but my thinking is that she totally missed that most of the male crew wanted to do really nasty things to her.

I miss Q. It's a shame two movies were wasted on boring nobodies like Ru'afu and Shinzon, while a fantastic villain like Q was relegated to making guest appearances on freakin Voyager.
Amen to that!!

I liked Brocolli as a character too.

No surprise he features in my two favourite Voyager episodes.
