This is a way too late entry about meeting with John de Lancie in my hometown, Budapest, at January. I totally forgot to tell you about it. *facepalm*

Just a reminder: he played Q in Star Trek spinoffs TNG, Voyager and DS9. He also played NID Colonel Frank Simmons in Stargate SG-1. I enjoyed especially when his character turned into a goa'uld at the end.

He had a Q&A panel first which lasted about 2 hours. Many questions were asked, many were about his acting, some questions were about his everyday life and some about shooting Star Trek. You can find this funny or not, questions regarding Star Trek and Q didn't make the biggest percentage of the questions altogether.

He was very nice and polite and also humorous. I don't know for sure if he tends to talk a lot in general, but he gave long answers, but it wasn't boring at all. He said he and his wife loved Budapest, they would like to come back sometime and they liked the Hungarian cuisine, too.

There was a photo session and an autograph session, too. The below photo was taken by a photographer at the autograph session - my younger daughter and me are standing in front of the desk.

This is Q himself!

ohh, hi there, it`s great to see you again (even if it`s only in a picture) *hugs* It seems you had a good time at the con. I don´t like the Star Trek character but I loved him in Stargate.

It`s always great to hear that an actor cares about what he`s doing, and the fans.

*hugs back* We had a good time, indeed! John was funny, clever, entertaining, nice and he really cared about his fans. It was also good to meet some friends at this con.

As for Q in Star Trek he was a very annoying character, but John acted so well. The only episode I liked Q was the one in Voyager, where he sent his son to Captain Janeway to study. Colonel Simmons was a great character in SG-1, agreed.

Hi there! ((HUGS))

Every time I see him I think about when he was on Days of Our Lives in the early 80s as goofy Eugene Bradford. He was so funny and wonderful!
