I like this and your other works, your characterizations of Q are very interesting. It would be interesting to read more in this and your other stories if you have the inspiration.
By the way, the fate of the other Q (the Doctor) was sad, yet imaginative.

"But you know there is one, right? That gravity doesn't go away because you click your heels together three times and chant 'There's no place like orbit'?"" I likes this one.
"Because that will help you calm down, and I'd rather not have to ask Dr. Crusher to tranquilize you." I likes this one too.

Wonderfully done! You are a very talented writer. I look forward to the next chapter.

"You stabbed me with a bayonet!" Don't hold a grudge or anything! You completely had me hooked with this chapter. I was all into this banter between Wesley and Q. How amazing would it be if Q and Wesley could create a bridge as he and the Traveler did for Wesley's mom! Outstanding premise...more of that please! : )

Awesome Chapter, please update soon. This is truly fascinating and thoughtful thoughts on how a superior being would have differences than a mortal being.

So much I could say, but I'll settle with 'keep it up!'

I literally did a happy dance when I saw this update- thanks for posting!
That was a mental work out! I did like all the moral/ethical considerations, though a couple of times it did feel a bit redundant. That may be partly because I read back previous chapters since it has been a while. It is a very cool idea... and why stop at 2? He could make 2 copies and then have a buddy. It will probably be harder to keep it from happening... since that would be terrible for the plot.
And some of the emotional stuff, I think, could have been better left implied or gone over more succinctly. But that could be me liking stoic, non-communicative characters haha.
I did notice, too, that you use the word 'die' a lot, especially when Q is talking. Synonyms would be good.

I'm afraid I still prefer rude Q to sensitive Q.

I'm so thrilled that we got another chapter. It's a great story, and I'm glad to see that it's still on your radar. I really liked Q's conversation with Troi. As a counselor, she has a unique perspective that hits uncomfortably close to home for Q, which always reveals interesting truths from him. I also really enjoyed from their conversation the anecdote about how betazoid twins used to be treated due to their two-bodies-one-mind issue. It not only helped further Q's own plans to "escape death while dying," but was fascinating in itself.
My only piece of constructive criticism for this otherwise perfect chapter, is that I felt Data's internal monologue went on for too long. While I liked getting his perspective, I felt that as the paragraphs went on, they started to repeat similar sentiments with slightly different wording. If you could condense his thoughts into fewer paragraphs that say the same thing (made a rational decision to risk his life that he does not regret, feels some form of guilt if he lets someone die without trying, finds Q's plan more reasonable than the Captain because of his different thought process), I feel that the reader would benefit from the faster pacing.
Everything else, I loved! You're a talent writer with a very good grasp on the Star Trek universe. It's a delightful combo.

I've been wanting to review this, but I've found it difficult to find what to say, because it's like reviewing a Star Trek episode. If they'd decided to make Deja Q into a two-part episode, this should have been the second part because it fits so well and feels so much like an actual episode.
Two things I want to comment on in particular:
Selar reminding Q of Suzy Q is quite amusing, since they were played by the same actress. Nice little in-joke you slipped in there.
And the Q with a small blue box who was always curious and bubbly - that must be a reference to Doctor Who. I always thought they were related…
| Ahlisha chapter 5 . 5/20/2013
This is a very well written, thoughtful, intelligent Q struggle with being mortal, human and the culture ,language and trying to communicate what is so drastically differentnfrom us Amazing.
| Gideon Moriattis chapter 5 . 5/20/2013

I can't even think of anything else to say except I love you and thank you.
Thank you so much.
I love you.
