Vash still seems not much older than she was in Captian's Holiday
She spent time with Q after that (see DS9).

Oooo she could have spent ten years with Q witnessing spectacular events of galactic history.. worth aging 10 years in your real time I think.

Re: Braga is in Pulling Seven's Strings Again.

Or Q, could have been more comfortable if she didn't age in his presence.

To an immortal, there's very little difference between ageing and rotting.

Although she could have also spent less than ten years with Q and been dropped off more than ten years later because the chronological progress of time relative to the many dimensions and universes they toured is tricky to even the omniscient.

Re: Braga is in Pulling Seven's Strings Again.

I think Q is more worried about those who mentally age then physically age.

So the comics are not in the Treklit timeline?
It's a case by case basis. Some have been firmly a part of the modern Treklit continuity, such as Wildstorm's TNG/DS9 crossover, "Divided We Fall", some have used elements of modern Treklit, such as the Andorian four-partner paradigm in IDW's "Alien Spotlight: Andorians", and sometimes Treklit has adopted elements from the comics, such as the events of WildStorm's "The Gorn Crisis" and Andorian President Thelian, of "Enter the Wolves", being referenced in "Titan: Taking Wing" and "Articles of the Federation".

So far, Braga's Borg story seems to be a possible future type of thing.

They also did their own Khan miniseries which is in a different continuity than my Khan novels . . . which is fine with me. It's not like either of us invented Khan.

I did my version. They did theirs.

Re: Braga is in Pulling Seven's Strings Again.

I think I have my own version from 20 years ago in a shoe box in my wardrobe as well.

Some wonder if Vash was approached to have Q's child before Janeway.

She might have done it for whatever passes as currency in the artifacts trade.

now a surrogate can get paid, but only a dirtbag sells their own kid.

Re: Braga is in Pulling Seven's Strings Again.

But how much would it even be her own kid? When Q proposed breeding to Janeway she thought it was the traditional method but then she got to witness the event with Lady Q. I doubt Lady Q swelled with child. Instant conception with a touch, instant infant materializes, instant teenager appears before you. ALL the fun parts skipped. Vash's ability to have any input would have been very limited.. and if the teenager that she conceived 5 minutes ago didn't want anything to do with her it's not like they went through a whole childhood of raising that she could hope would tug at teen-Q's heartstrings. And if teen-Q did want her to be in his life 24/7 it's not like she could get rid of him.

It's really an egg donation with the possibility that the result might take over your life.

Re: Braga is in Pulling Seven's Strings Again.

Q said that Janeway would raise the kid and they would explore new dimensions together.

Q needed a mother, because he didn't want to be a father.

Re: Braga is in Pulling Seven's Strings Again.

But by raise the kid he meant "stand here, this kid will grow up fast". He didn't tell her it took almost no time like he didn't tell her about the mating.

Re: Braga is in Pulling Seven's Strings Again.

Q might have been grown up by human standards, but that doesn't mean that the rest of the continuum considered him mature albeit "omniscient".

Besides look at Neelix freaking out over less than a year of fatherhood in Elogium.

Re: Braga is in Pulling Seven's Strings Again.

I still don't think it's much of a step above donor eggs, if Vash was fully apprised of how it was all going to work. It is true though that given Q's inability to spend 5 minutes mentoring a teenager Vash might be called upon to do stuff at some point. But I'm thinking she might find it quite convenient to have both a lover (or whatever) and a child who could potentially whisk her about the universe.

I think she would have tried to work out an angle to her benefit if he had made her the breeding proposal.

Re: Braga is in Pulling Seven's Strings Again.

Q might not have wanted to follow Picard.

Men can be silly like that.

At least until Benjamin Franklin invented the douchebag.
