Most Powerful Beings in Trek

Thinking about Q, the various entities that Kirk ran into, the future folks from the Temporal Cold War, Species 8472, the guy who got Voyager lost out there, etc. Who are/have been/will be the most powerful beings in the universe (not just galaxy)?

Re: Most Powerful Beings in Trek

0 (Zero or Nil) ranks pretty high up there... as does (*)...

Pretty sure the God of Sha Ka Ree is on the list as well... not as high as Q, 0 or (*) though...

Vger. Unlike 'God', it had its own starship.

Re: Most Powerful Beings in Trek

I think the most powerful would be the Q, the Organians, and the Metrons. Possibly whatever new life form that was born out of the merging of Decker & V'Ger.

(*) was literally laughed away. The One was destroyed by Klingon disruptors. (Or at least severely crippled by them) Gorgon took his power from children who are fickle anyway.

0 would have been interesting had he actually appeared as a threat on any of the series.

And Gary Mitchell would have been a threat but he was thrawted by his old nemesis: a boulder.

It was quite funny how many superbeings there were on TOS.

One of the things I really liked about TNG was that they created a single superbeing and took the time to develop the character over the entire years.

Re: Most Powerful Beings in Trek

The funny thing about superbeings is that they usually don't have to follow the annoying conventions and limitations of linear time. Which means that even if we catch them at a moment of seeming weakness (usually of their own doing, as the Q were very adept at creating boulders they themselves couldn't lift, and didn't need Kirk to do it for them), they may well have been more powerful earlier on and later on, and this moment of weakness is just them being young and silly.

Pakleds...
We all know and hate the "small universe syndrome", but it does make in-universe and dramatic sense that every superbeing would indeed be "young Q". That is, if you are a superbeing of any worth, you will continue to evolve, and you will reach perfection, and there is just one perfection, which is unity in Q. Of course, it then follows that Pakleds would be future Q, too...

I thought a Douwd would rank right up there with Q.

Who are O and (*)?
