Q explaining the multiverse.

The multiverse is the sum total of all existence, the compiled mass of every universe and presumably other extra-dimensional realms such as fluidic space.

Very few species have the capabilities to explore the entire multiverse and the vast majority stay well within the confines of their own universes. One species that can and readily do traverse the mulitverse are the Q. (TNG novels: Q-Zone, Q-Space, Q-Strike)

History

In 2273, Q described the multiverse using the metaphor of a continuous ocean interconnecting reality for Willard Decker and the merged consciousness he shared with V'Ger and the Ilia probe. (TOS - Waypoint - Special comic: "Consider Eternity")

In the War of the Prophets alternate timeline, Miles O'Brien posited that there had to be multiverses where the universe did not end in the year 2400. (DS9 - Millennium novel: Inferno)

In 2380, all Kathryn Janeways in the multiverse died through various means. Her death became a fixed point in time the Q dared not change. However, Q saved Janeway from oblivion in the primary universe and aided in her return to the living in mid-2381. (VOY novel: The Eternal Tide)
