I'd watch a spinoff with just Q Continuum characters, personally. That could actually be interesting-- kind of taking what makes Spiderman or Star Trek interesting (the human element) and going the exact opposite way. I bet a good writer could explore some really big themes using omnipotent characters who can't easily be drawn into standard dramatic forms.

I've often been disappointed with ST films, especially TNG ones-- it was like they took everything I liked about the show, and just shat on it, and topped the whole mess with this palpable feeling that the studio didn't trust Trek fans to enjoy the movie unless they made it violent/fast/dark-- and had characters doing all sorts of atypical things. Also, since this is my first time commenting here, (and I've seen over and over again that you actually read the comments)I want to let you know that I always got a big kick out of Wesley's character-- it was nice to see someone about my age getting to roam about the Enterprise! You must be a pretty good actor, too... I can still remember feeling sort of embarrassed for Wes in one episode where he was rather short with his mom. Ha! It's amusing how we can become so emotionally invested with these characters, isn't it?
