The Q were a race of beings with god-like abilities; they could make anything they want appear just by snapping their fingers. They generally were humanoid, and took on the appearance of a Human. Their government is known as the Q Continuum. For the Q, life has become stagnant and boring for most. They have literally seen and experienced everything. Others of the Q, such as Q, who appears frequently throughout the Star Trek TV Shows Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: The Next Generation, appears to have fun with anything that he deems interesting. One example of this is that in one episode of the Next Generation, when Q was punished for being a trouble maker, an alien known as a Calamarain came to kill him, due to the fact he tormented their race. Another Q who had fun with everything was an unnamed female Q who Q had broken up with before. She had the same routine as her husband; the sarcastic remarks and smug additude.
