    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.

    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.

    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.

    The same person arguing with themselves? And our Q is just a moment of petulance that goes on forever?

    Continually in some sort of continuum.

    There is no point in it dying because if it did die and disappear some ensign would start another thread about it.

    "Hey guys I just had this crazy thought, do you think what Janeway did to Tuvix could be considered murder?"

    True.

    I wonder if anyone has posted "He's dead, Jim!"

    If it was Neelix and some random crewmember instead of Tuvok, she might have made a different decision.... :lol:

    If it was 7 smushed into someone she would ripped them apart with her bare hands to free her.

    OMG.. what if it was 7 AND Chakotay??

    Would that be her perfect match?

    "Acoochimoya! You will comply."

    Janeway and the Doctor murdered thousands of living identities acting up inside Seven's head who were contributing towards her personality and intellect.

    They didn't murder them, they freed them.

    Would you like to be trapped inside 7 forever and ever?

    Oh wait.. don't answer that.

    It would have been more than possible to free them, transferring all those "files" off into a fishtank like Picard made for Moriarty to play in.

    And besides, copies of all those people are still inside the collective along with several versions of Anika Hansen, so they were still prisoners no matter what they did on Voyager.

    Comparing the "early" Picard and Janeway in their respective first seasons - I agree. Although I think that the late Captain Picard is a better Captain compared to Janeway. Simply because Janeway developed into sort of a "head-through-the-wall", bottomlessly deep and somewhat isolated being, who was eaten up by her guilt, while Picard became more human than he was at start. I don't complain about the development of Janeway's character. It was not without alternatives, but it was a logical thing to happen, considering her original persona (and if anything it attracted me even more to her). But I do not think this development made her a better captain.
