Y IS PICARD SUCH AN INGRATE??

Q has been good to him in a lot of ways,
but Picard is only negative and insulting.

@OmSigDAVID,
I agree. They're supposed to be out there exploring for new things and new life, and Q is probably the most interesting thing they could hope to find. Granted Q causes them problems but then again so would an incurable space virus.

Q's message after the first meeting with the Borg was telling, "There are things out here to satiate desires both subtle and gross, but they are not for the feint of heart".

YES! Absolutely, and he is a lot more agreeable than the Klingons.
He has made them some good offers of powers & abilities,
far beyond those of mortal men.

Have thay run into the guys from Krypton yet ?

Yes; I remember that.

Q is a boring pain in the ass, I usually switch off the instant he turns up in an episode

@Romeo Fabulini,
With all the things that Q can do
and DOES, I can 't consider him to be boring.

I deem him to be thrilling. I always wanna see HIS episodes.

He has offered members of the crew ANYTHING that thay want, for free.
Who has treated u as well as that, Romeo????

Wud u reject his offers of powers and adventures?? If so, Y ?

Yes I would, in fact I suspect he's gay and has got a crush on Picard and Riker.
Anyway, space is BORING!
In one episode a friendly alien called The Traveller offers to take Wesley Crusher on a tour of the "wonders" of the universe, and Wesley is all for it.
Me, I'd have said "Thanks but no thanks mate".
But in fairness to Wes, he did come to his senses in a later episode and quit Star Fleet and all that space stuff, good for him..Smile

I 'd LOVE to have that additional power, the power of the Q.

That 's not part of the storyline,
besides, Picard is an old man.
Kirk was better a better captain.

I 'm a very intense supporter of the Space Program.
I 'd multiply NASA's budget by 2OO,
but private exploration of Space is better.

I loved those few episodes with The Traveller in the script.
Thay were very creative. (I watch the re-runs of those eps.)
Admittedly, to have gone on that trip with him woud have taken courage.
If I had the power of the Q, the first thing I 'd do is eliminate,
annihilate, any and all government control of gun possession,
or faser possession. Its neat, how the target VANISHES from a faser blast.
No need to dispose of the target. I was discussing with a friend in NY
that he shud plan his anti-burglary defenses beforehand
so that he need not START to decide what to do
when an emergency is already in progress or when
he has shot an ugly dead thing on the floor of his apartment.
It might be difficult for him to get rid of it without involvement of police;
potentially awkward taking the dead target down in the elevator,
if he meets his nabors. He has a lot of guns, but its un-likely that he has fasers.
Maybe he coud use the freight elevator; I dunno. What do u think ?

He accepted The Traveller 's offer and he went with him, with his mom's blessing.
She counseled him to "dress warmly on those other planes of existence."
I was very pleased with that. In the 1990s, I had a friend named Andre,
a lad who looked exactly like Wil Wheaton; good fellow.
He subsequently became a medic in the US Army.
He might be a general by now, for all I know, but I was struck by the very close
similarity of appearance. His mother introduced him to me on his 13th birthday.
I mentioned that similarity to him, but he did not appear to like it.

@OmSigDAVID,
Q's offers always come with caveats - nothing is free.

Also remember that Q wanted Captain Janeway to have his child so his infatuation with Riker was just a bromance.

Quote:
Q and the Grey: Plot
Captain Kathryn Janeway is surprised when Q appears in her quarters - and in her bed - one night. Q is intent on Janeway becoming the mother of his child, and plies the Captain with gifts in an attempt to win her affections. Janeway is not amused, and demands that Q leave immediately. Q is persistent, claiming that he could have chosen any female in the galaxy and that his desire for Janeway should be regarded as an honor.

Q likes to PLAY.
To an eternal being, the only threat is boredom.

@OmSigDAVID,
If you like Q stories, you really should watch the Voyager series. He is a big player there and leads a faction in the continuum championing individual freedom over the rights of the collective. Right up your alley.

Yes I'm a scifi fan myself and I suspect I may have been abducted on two separate occasions while camping alone, I've splashed the stories around the net, try googling "The Kings Lynn Incident" and "The Spalding Incident"..Smile

Any advice for my friend in NY concerning
how the English get rid of dead burglars,
consistent with avoiding annoyance from the police ?

WHAT is the English method ?

I live only 50 yards from the dockside so its a piece of cake to wheel them down there in a wheelbarrow after dark and sling them in, weighted down with chains..Smile

Just sling 'em out the window, then go down and cart them away.
Alternatively I could hoist them onto my flat roof and leave them there to rot and be eaten by crows

Its important that the target not remain alive,
or there might be a struggle at the window; someone might get hurt.
Regarding the chains, u see that represents a cultural difference.
In NY, cement blocks are traditional.
U think its important that no one is below the window ?

No, no, no. U must be mindful of air pollution.

That wud set up a horrible stench.
