Who is probably the most arrogant, assholish, bonified nut-job in all the universe? (Especially the Star Trek universe Next gen anyone?)
If you answer anyone other than Q, then you’d be dead wrong and not a Star Trek fan.
While I may not be a die hard fan like some of the whining kids out there moaning about the reboot they did with the last movie, I am a fan, and know enough to make most geeks look sad. To me, Q came off as over bearing, arrogant and quite the bastard in his first appearance in Next Generation. he was a character I loved to hate. In fact, in Q, I found inspiration for a few villains.
Throughout the series, Q had tested Picard and tried to make him go running home to Earth with his tail between his legs. But, because Picard never did, Q learned many things from his favorite ‘pet’ human. He even learned that he had a heart, a softer side that confused the life out of him until he was made human for a short time.
Yeah, he was never really a villain, but he definitely wasn’t a good guy, just someone who thought h was greater than the universe.
What other characters out there could hold a match to this one person? So far, I’ve found none, but the evil queen in ‘Once Upon a Time’ comes very close, but she doesn’t close enough to outshine Q.
