Nope. Q is the awesome sauce. He is every god-like alien that ever appeared in TOS rolled into one. I don't understand how you can hate anyone that powerful and ridiculous.

I love Q! Especially when he's riddle-dueling Spock.

I thought Q was a clever commentary on mythology/religion.

No, no - Q is cleverer.

He'd turn everyone else into frogs for the OP to confront his/her inner existential crisis.

I don't. The Q are snide, arrogant, and condescending. Makes me just love to hate them.

You could argue that the Q character is responsible for TNG.

The way I understood it the original pilot episode of TNG was originally going to just consist of the story about Farpoint station, the networks wanted a 2 hour pilot so against genes wishes they told him to stretch the story and the Q plot was the answer. I don't think that a Q-less version of Encounter at Farpoint would attracted many viewers the pilot outside of the whimsical character was really bland and predictable.

Personally I think that Q is one of those characters that when done right really shines but when used improperly just feels forced and unnecessary. The TNG episodes with the manbearpig army and the human/Q stick out to me as bad Q usage episodes, and I think every Q episode outside of "Quin" on voyager was just bad.

Well then... I must admit my dear Aslan, I'd say I was injured, but we both know the truth. Sticks and stones as they say...

This on the other hand, is hurtful. Comic Releif? Really? You humans are just so short sighted.
