: Q was your favorite character???
: Of all the characters, ... why Q???
: I mean, yes, he was a bad ass...but he was too arrogant for my liking. I guess that's what omnipotence does to you.
****I shouldn't have made it seem like he was my only fav. Q and Captain Pecan :-)
Q is an enigma. He's always got something up his sleeve that you can never figure out up until the last one or two minutes of the show. He's a trickster. Tricksters always add excitement to the story.
: I don't know if I have a favorite character, but Data was quite the actor if I might say so.
****Data was great. He was the ship's comedian eventhough he didn't mean to be.
: As far as guest appearances go, Counselor Troi's mother, that wench, was also a good character.
***I have to agree.
: One of my favorite scenes was in an episode where Data and Jordi are in the barber shop on the ship... and this ugly ass alien walks by. Data gives the alien a look, then does a double take... looks at it again with a look that screams "How can you be so ugly!!"...
****lol...my favorite scene was in one of the Q episodes. Captain Pecan was once again frustrated at Q for making the moon of some planet disappear. Q isn't immortal anymore in this episode. He's been ousted from the Continuum and as punishment the Continuum made Q mortal, striping him of all of his powers. Q had his choice of what kind of mortal to become and he chose to become a human being rather than a Klingon or Romulan or anythign else. Worf is also in this scene...Read their dialogue below. It cracked me up.
Picard: "Return that moon to its orbit."
Q: "I have no powers! Q, the ordinary!"
Picard: "Q, the liar! Q, the misanthrope!"
Q: "Q, the miserable, Q, the desperate! What must I do to
convince you people?"
Q: "Oh, very clever, Worf. Eat any good books lately?"
: Who is a dork??
****Jeff, this is why we're friends. :-)
