    Q's always awesome, not his best in Voy, but I enjoyed the episodes, annoyed that Janeway never said, Y'know, home is 70 years away for us, snap of the fingers for you...

    Pft... if Q brought them home, Janeway's absolute authority over all would be shattered. ;)

    Voyager somehow managed to outwear all the villains and make them less interesting and lame the more we saw of them. Kazon, Vidians, Borg, Q, Hirogen or Species 8472, didn't matter.

    I liked that Q was less of a "villain type" in VOY actually. I agree that Q was used way more for comedy in VOY than in TNG. John de Lancie is so awesome at comedy...I don't think he could have stayed a straight "villain" for long. Even on TNG.

    I do think he was really great in TNG and tended to speak a lot more about how humans needed to prove themselves and realize the dangers and consequences of space exloration...especially Q's role in "All Good Things..."

    However I liked his role in VOY too. He was comical and I enjoyed the parallel of his banter and rapport with Janeway and how it mirrored Q's relationship with Picard.

    I always looked forward to a Q episode, to be honest. I have to say though, "Death Wish" never did it for me really. I prefer "The Q and the Grey" if I want a dose of Q in VOY although the Civil War analogy fell flat for me...but I loved how Janeway shows compassion for him at the end. And I love how he tries to seduce her in the beginning. :D

    I wish Q had more appearances on DS9! They teased me with that 1 episode. I was expecting him to pop in at least a few more times. -___-

    Q was never a villain. He was an ANTAGONIST (and no, the terms are not one and the same). Villains can be - and generally are - antagonists, but not all antagonists are villainous.

    ^^True.

    Q is much more of an antagonist than a villain. Someone like Gul Dukat I would consider to be a villain. :lol:

    One way to look at that, is that to some it felt as if he was in more than he actually was, that isn't a good thing. Q appeared in 8 episodes of TNG, yet did it re.ally feel as if it was 8 episodes?

    It could also be down to the fact that those episodes where his tenth, eleventh and twelth appearences which to some might have lent to a feeling that the character was overused.

    For me Q' weakest appearance in VOY was in the"Q and the Grey", as others have already mentioned the best use was in "Death Wish"
