The My Favorite Martian Bloghop is finally here!
So the day is finally here! Today, is the My Favorite Martian Bloghop. When I started thinking about which martian/alien/life form from another planet is my favorite, ET was the first to spring to mind. But then I thought harder and realized I like ET, but he is not my favorite. So, I continued thinking, and do you know what I realized? There are a LOT of Aliens that I like. Superman, Supergirl, Martian Man Hunter, The entire character base of Star Wars, Alf, Mork, the aliens from Earth Girls are Easy, Transformers…..seriously the list goes on and on. Finally, I was down to 2 favorites….both from the Star Trek Universe, Spock and Q.
So I thought and thought about it. While I do love Spock, ( specially Leonard Nimoy’s version) and his logical thinking, in the end Q won out. Why? Because he is HILARIOUS!
Q (played by John de Lancie) appeared on 3 different Star Trek series Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Star Trek: Voyager, and in my opinion, those episodes tended to be the highlight of the season. Q comes from the Q Continuum, where Q and every other Q live. Yes each one is called Q, however this Q is definitely unique. He is considered to be a rebel by the other Q, since he causes so much trouble in the universe. The Q are considered Omnipotent…..they understand how the universe works and can manipulate it to their will.
Q always showed up at the least convenient times. He caused HUGE amounts of trouble. In the end it always worked out, one way or another.
Q was completely OBSESSED with Captain Picard. He was the captain that Q tortured the most. Of course all you have to do is listen to Captain Picard (Patrick Stewart) and you have a chance of becoming completely obsessed as well.
However, Captain Picard wasn’t the only Captain he obsessed about. He tried to mate with Janeway…. tried being the key word.
So that is why Q is my favorite, because he is a hilarious trouble maker. If you are a Star Trek fan than you already know Q. If you aren’t then you just learned about one of the most awesome “Puck” like characters in the Star Trek universe.
Please take a moment to hop around to the other blogs and find out who their favorite aliens are…. it should be a blast.
I would also love if you would leave a comment letting me know who your favorite alien is!
