Why god can’t have a hamster.

This is brilliant.

That’s the god of the bible: a guy who isn’t responsible enough to own a hamster.

    “Trelane, if you can’t play nicely with your pets, you won’t be allowed to have them at all.”
    – Star Trek, TOS

      This was exactly my first thought. Trelane has always been one of my favorite one shot characters. So much better than Q.

        Once Q showed up, I just figured that Trelane was Q as a boy.

        • Silent Service

          I believe that there was actually a book with both Trelane and Q in it. Looking at the way things played out in the TV shows, I’d be more inclined to think of Trelane as Q’s child than as Q himself. Q was always too proud to not anounce who he was.

            It was called “Q-Squared” by Peter David. It was even on the NYT best sellers list. Q was more of a godfather/favorite uncle type.

            Is this the same Peter David who wrote the Incredible Hulk for years?
