In Star Trek: The Next Generation, was the sole survivor on Rana IV a member of the Q continuum?


Thanks!  I had forgotten (short term memory loss?) that he said what his species was during the episode.

    He was a Douwd.

    The Q are nearly omnipotent, but have physical bodies.

    The Douwd are at approximately as powerful as the Q (but in different ways), but are energy beings.  They also apparently have a version of the Federation's "Prime Directive," which the Q do not.

    No, he was a Douwd. What a great episode (The Survivors). 👍
