I bet Picard would have slept with Q if he was put in the same situation.
I am definitely not saying Janeway>Picard or anything, but you do have a point....

If Q really wanted Picard he would have thrown him across the galaxy as the first part of his grand seduction plan.

And left him there.



WHY does Star Trek never give me what I want?!



Brave new worlds, pfft.

You can say that again

[randomfanboyrant] Actually, I think it would have been more interesting if Q was the reason Voyager got stranded in the Delta Quadrant, instead of the Caretaker. Would have jibed more with Q "preparing" humanity for the Borg threat, as hinted in Q Who!

Imagine Janeway in pursuit of the Masquis, almost obsessively to rescue the undercover Tuvok. Q shows up at an inopportune time, Janeway and the Masquis bot offend Q, so he "teaches" them a lesson, and strand them in the Delta Quadrant, like he did with the Enterprise. That would have made Q's subsequent appearances a little more interesting and make more sense as he is "checking in" on Janeway, too, IMHO. [/randomfanboyrant]

He'd be just as much of an asshole if he put them there and refused to bring them home as he is now having refused to bring them home.

Q see's all time simultaneously with perfect clarity. Leave them where they are Janeway destroys the Borg. He doesn't sound like much of an asshole to me?

Does he care about the Borg because if they assimilate the galaxy there will be no one left to play with?

I think Q could have snapped his fingers and eliminated the Borg. He could have snapped them a second time to bring Voyager home. Silly Q~

From Q's perspective it's already over, and then he's the damn Scarecrow again.

Re: Why Kathryn Janeway is the BEST Star Fleet Captain... EVER!

I think he intentionally limits himself out of boredom to make life more interesting.

I feel like that when I'm stuck in certain conversations and social settings. They could be all tedium that has already happened and will happen a hundred other times BUT if I hyper focus on the minutiae as if it were absolutely enthralling it provides comedy.

No I am not really comparing myself to Q.. I just think he's found some relatable ways of treading water only on a grander and more dangerous scale than humans can employ.

Re: Why Kathryn Janeway is the BEST Star Fleet Captain... EVER!

No, I've talked to stupid people.

It's worse for Q, because he knows what he is going to say and do, which he always will still have to say and do, otherwise things get complicated.

Re: Why Kathryn Janeway is the BEST Star Fleet Captain... EVER!

I really don't think Q would be as lively as he is if he knew everything he was going to say and do forever and ever. I think he must place limitations on himself or have limitations his continuum places on him so they don't all commit suicide out of horrible boredom.

If we really want to get abstract, I think that they all might be the same person.

Yep that is abstract, but I could believe that scenario. It's an interesting idea, makes me think.
