The enigmatic entity known as Q remains one of the greatest mysteries of the universe, yet no one, perhaps, understands Q as well as actor John de Lancie, who has played Q on television for more than a decade. Now de Lancie and Peter David, the bestselling author of such acclaimed novels as Q-in-Law and Q-Squared have joined forces to send Q on an unforgettable cosmic odyssey, told from the mischevious trickster's own unique point of view. The Maelstrom, a metaphysical whirlpool of apocalyptic proportions, is pulling all of reality into its maw, devouring the totality of time and space while bringing together people and places from throughout the universe. The Q Continuum pronounces that the end of everything has come, but Q refuses to meekly accept the complete termination of all he has known. Defying the judgment of the Continuum, he sets out do derail doomsday at whatever the cost. Q is joined in this quest by his young son, little q, as well as by two displaced Starfleet officers. Snatched from the USS Enterprise™ by the inexorable pull of the Maelstrom, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Lieutenant Commander Data have no choice but to accompany Q on a hazardous journey into the very heart of the vortex, where they will encounter wonders and dangers enough to render Q himself speechless. Almost. But can even Q, assisted by Picard, prevent the Universe as We Know It from literally going down the drain? I, Q is a wild and witty voyage through the secret soul of creation as only Q can tell it!… (més)

Disappointing. ( )

I like the Q character, so this was a fun read. Not really engaging beyond that, and probably not for anyone who doesn't like Star Trek, but it was fun. ( )

I really didn't like this book at first. I get why it was told from Q's point of view and John DeLancie and Peter David got Q's voice down perfectly, but at the beginning it was so hard to follow.

The story was very Dante's Inferno-ish. The End is coming, or maybe someone is causing the End to come. Even Q doesn't know for sure. The Multiverse will be no more. But, before everything ends Q has to find Lady Q and little q, who he managed to lose right before the end started. (You think this is a bad book when it comes to mind bending, try Peter David's Q-Squared, that one ties your brain into knots even more).

So, Q, along with Picard and Data (because it always seems to be Picard and Data who get the stand alone books. I like them, but would love to see some where Beverly Crusher or Geordi or someone else gets to be the tag along human).

It wasn't all a bust though, there was a Locutus sighting, which was cool. And there was even some Jadzia Dax (*sigh* I still miss Jadzia Dax).

And then there was the best line that I've read in a Star Trek Novel in quite awhile, "I'm human... I never stop fighting..." (pg. 231). It seems to be an idea that Peter David keeps coming to in his books. The same idea was part of Q-Squared too.

Of course, that among other things made the book a bit human centric (as well as it being a bit 20th Century centric), but, honestly, it was written in the 20th Century by a human to be read in the 20th and 21st century by other humans, so I can see why using a human point of view for Q was how they went. And there is precedent in the show. He's always been obsessed by humans on the show too.

All in all a solid Star Trek Novel. Not bad, but not Peter David's best either. ( )

If you like the character Q you will love this book. If you hate Q, sarcasm, wordplay or digs at American and some British culture then you will despise it. Q's tale runs the gamut from religion to literature to the Times Square New Year's Eve celbration and, true to form, Q disses it all. Some references such as Shakespeare are obvious; others like James Bond - the "Q" and "M" continuums - are a little more subtle. In addition, the structure of the plot is reminiscent of Homer's Oddyssey and Dante's Inferno. De Lancie and David do a masterful job of showcasing all sides of one of the most complicated characters to appear on film. ( )

I find Star Trek’s “Q” one of science fiction’s most enjoyable characters. I, Q is an entire story told through the words and actions of Q himself! If you enjoy Q you will find this story very informative, however, if you dislike Q, you may want to skip this book. It is above all else 249 pages of Q, and he never stops talking! ( )
