Q Is For….. Q

As you might imagine I had to do a little pondering in figuring out what to do for “Q” day.

In the end I decided to follow my inner Star Trek nerd and go with “Q is for Q”.

For those not familiar, Q is a character from Star Trek The Next Generation. Played by John DeLancie he is an omnipotent being of virtually unlimited power. During the series he would show up to torment, tease and otherwise frustrate the Enterprise crew.

But in one episode he had a different agenda, offering a member of the crew “the power of the Q”. That is to say virtual omnipotence and the ability to do anything you wanted.

In another episode he showed up to try and convince a young woman who had the power of the Q that she must leave human society because the temptation to use them would be too great.

So I though this would make a fun discussion for the weekend.

What would you do if offered all of that power… would you take it or not ?

Do you think you could control your use of that power ?

And if you could, what would you do with your power ?
