Re: Q or No-Name Ensign

I would definitely play a Q.

Shorter duration, but much more fun.

Q, absolutely. More people would remember you and it would be more likely to lead to further jobs.

Yes, but removing the pay factor is illogical. It would be a professional job and the pay would be commensurate.

Re: Q or No-Name Ensign

I'd be an ensign, specifically an engineer on TNG and hopefully I get a corny over simplification scene; "Ooh, like catching a fish with a net?". It wouldn't be a career based choice, I'd just be stoked to hang out with the crew for 5 episodes.

Nah, those lines go to regulars and guest stars. At best you might get an "aye, aye sir" or "power levels normal".

Indeed. Best answer.

Me, I'd go with the Q role. Couldn't pass up the chance to be flashy, crazy and antagonize a Starfleet ship and crew with my omnipotent powers, especially if it was the TNG crew.

Re: Q or No-Name Ensign

On TOS, a redshirt, because hanging out around the regular cast for 5 episodes would be amazing.

Any other series, a Q - because it's more fun and would look better on my resume.

Absolutely Q, then I could fly all over the world forever after doing conventions and signing stuff and snapping my fingers.
