24. Looking back
This journey I have been on began with one phrase.
One simple phrase.
"What is the matter now, Jean-Luc?"
A phrase that changed my life for the better, and I learned to reconcile with my feelings. I learned to embrace more of the responsibility of being a Q more securely and just a little more cautiously. If I were to make another mess . . . I better not bring Trelane into it, I better not make enemies such as Travid and Kurva. I better make friends with people such as Slevik,Ambassador Ronald of Colo, Karen, Captain Kirk, Spock, and so on.
"You tell me what you've done to my ship!"
That journey I began and have seemingly ended comes with a resolution.
"I've done nothing, Jean-Luc."
Some people assume I might be different at the end.
But not I.
I am still the same person just a little more wary.
I am Judge Q.
And humanity will never be ready for the void of forever.
That much the Q continuum and M continuum can agree on.
