Quote:In Q squared which I believe is canon
I don't think any Trek novel is canon. I'll be danged if I count the stuff from the books, the comics or the video games. Same with Star Wars or any other franchise really for me.
Im not actually that convinced that the book is canon now I sit here holding it... I think you're spot on about books and so forth not being canon... darn good book though! PAD really nails Q.
Though, that being said, in the Star Trek encyclopedia which we must consider the information within as canon as it is officially licensed by paramount themselves, Trelane's entry in that encyclopedia, is actually cross referenced to the Q's entry. So while it doesn't state specifically, and implicitly he is a Q, its interesting, as all the other known Q's are cross referenced with each other.
