The Q Continuum were originally going to be a large number of identical individuals all played by John de Lancie
. This portrayal is rather apparent in Star Trek: The Next Generation: Encounter at Farpoint
(1987), with each change of costume Q goes through usually resulting in a change in attitude and demeanor. However, by Q's next appearance Star Trek: The Next Generation: Hide and Q
(1987), this particular idea seems to have been dropped, with Q acting as a single individual, and later episodes introduced other members of the Q Continuum played by very different-looking actors, a gimmick which continued in a few episodes of Star Trek: Voyager
(1995). See more
Throughout the series, the concept is that there is "no money" in the Federation. Yet the Federation obtains things from other outsiders meaning they have to resort to barter - a system older and less efficient than money.
More importantly, all resources are limited. If there is no money there would have to be limits on who could obtain what, a system far more oppressive than one using money. See more
The 1991 episode "Unification, Part 1" is dedicated to the memory of Gene Roddenberry. See more
