If I understand correctly, the Countdown version of Picard and by virtue the 24th century era in general, is meant to be a different continuity from the novel range. Right?
I'm not sure "meant to be" is the right way of putting it, but the Countdown continuity and the novel continuity at least happen to be distinct from each other in certain ways, primarily where Data is concerned.

Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

I really like this story-line so far. I cannot wait to see Sisko and the rest of the DS9 crew interact with the JJ crew

This is possibly my most favourite STOngoing issue since Mirrored. Lots of fun and homages!

The ending reminded me of the beginning of a certain DS9 episode, but kind of in reverse.

Bring on DS9...

I agree whole-heartedly with you both. Great issue and amazing art!

Nah - like Brent Spiner, DeLancie thinks he's got too old to play his unaging TNG character now. And would you really want his Q recast?

[This is before we consider the other 24th century characters, and the combination of actor aging and possible unwillingness to reprise therein, building new versions of the sets, and so on.]

Normally, I'd be open to recasting any role. But when I think about it... Q is a really, really stupid idea for a character. He's just a rehash of the stock Trek godlike alien, particularly the Trelane model (which wasn't all that entertaining the first time around), and he can do anything by snapping his fingers, which is the laziest possible approach to writing an alien in science fiction. He's basically the same character as The Great Gazoo. The only reason Q works at all is because of DeLancie's sublimely snarky and charismatic performance. So if you take DeLancie away, all you've got is... The Great Gazoo.

Of course not! If you put it that way, I don't want ANYONE to be recast!

Even worse. I came this close to saying Q was the same character as the Genie from Aladdin, but the Genie was a lot friendlier. Either way, I don't like outright magic in my science fiction. DeLancie is the only thing that makes Q tolerable.

Re: IDW Star Trek Ongoing...

Personally I have always liked Q, yet his character had to be used well and with the right people. He worked so well in TNG because of his chemistry with Picard, on VOY he just felt like a play thing for the writers, as Chris talked about above (insert lazy writing here).

I have no issue with god-like aliens in my sci-fi as long as it's a good story. Here's to hoping this story line will be worthy of Q's best appearances
