The Q Continuum was a trilogy of novels by Greg Cox published by Pocket Books in 1998. Early the following year the Science Fiction Book Club published a hardcover omnibus of the entire trilogy, and later, in 2003, Pocket Books released their own paperback omnibus as part of the Signature Edition series.


From the backcover of the 2003 omnibus
The unpredictable cosmic entity known only as Q has plagued Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Starship Enterprise since their very first voyage together. But little was known of Q's mysterious past or of the unearthly realm from which he hails.
Until now.
A brilliant scientist may have found a way to breach the energy barrier surrounding the Milky Way galaxy, and the Enterprise is going to put it to the test. The last thing Captain Picard needs is a surprise visit from Q, but the omnipotent trickster has more in mind than his usual pranks. Kidnapping Picard, he takes the captain back through time to the moment the Q Continuum faced its greatest threat.
Now Picard must learn Q's secrets - or all of reality may perish!
