Remember that show, My Favorite Martian? I do. I used to catch it on reruns here in Chicago on the local station WGBO. Ahh...Bill Bixby, how I miss thee...
Anyway, today we get to talk about our favorite Martian (or non-Martian) and why we love them. I have so many favorites that it was hard to narrow it down. But, after much soul-searching, the choice was pretty clear. My favorite non-Martian is Q.
Part of the Q Continuum , Q is an omnipotent and all powerful being whose motivations are completely vague. He can travel with a thought and call into being a entirely new species with a snap of his fingers. Who would not want to travel round the universe with this guy. Sure he's obnoxious, but he is funny as hell and could create a planet just for you. He could give you the wisdom of the ages, but then again he could just as easily turn you into primordial ooze or a sub-atomic particle. then again he could do the same thing to that psycho co-worker you have to put up with. It all depends on his mood.
Q And Tell:
Gene Roddenberry named him in honor of his friend Janet Quarton.
He is played by John De Lancie, who also wrote a novel called I, Q.
John's real-life son, Keegan, played Little Q or q in the Voyager Episode Q2
He made his debut in the Next Generation premiere episode Encounter at Farpoint.
So who or what are your favorite Martians, aliens and other extra-terrestrials?
