    I figure the Douwd powers are nearly comparable to a Q's, since thinking a species out of existence is about as mighty as it gets. However, I imagine Douwd powers though powerful are limited to linear time, or Uxbridge could have just interfered in the time line, the way a Q can, & fixed the problem before it happened

    The Krenim erase Q from the timeline.

    Meanwhile, en route to Farpoint Station, Guinan has a feeling that something big has changed in the universe (like how she shouldn't even be on the Enterprise yet) but doesn't deem it important enough to tell Picard.

    I never thought I'd see the day that I cited TNG: Hide and Q for anything, but today's the day (May The Fourth Be With You). From http://www.chakoteya.net/NextGen/111.htm:

    Therefore, how well Q does might depend on when the contest takes place.

    Given they Krenim seem oddly vulnerable to temporal shielding even a small, beat up Federation ship can come up with on their own, I somehow doubt a man who can manipulate space and time by snapping his finger will be effected by their temporal weapon.

    He could travel through time well enough, but manipulate it? I don't recall ever seeing that. He never snapped his fingers and altered history.

    And if it's Q vs EVERYONE else, then I would think he'd be plenty distracted enough to miss one temporal blast that he probably underestimates.

    Not that my suggestion was entirely serious in the first place.

    Those TOS creatures were obviously not omnipotent, just powerful to differing degrees.

    The same answer these kinds of questions always geet. Batman, provided he has time to prepare.
