 STARTREK.COM : Biography
The Q being, usually taking the form of a human male, is known to have confronted the El-Aurian native Guinan around 2166, a century before the Borg scattered her people and over 250 years after she first encountered Captain Picard and his crew when they were time-traveling in old San Francisco.
As a compromise I was allowed to decide his fate in an inquiry which included a human-personified representation of the Q Continuum and the appearance of Isaac Newton, a 20th century human involved in popular music culture named Maury Ginsberg, and Cmdr. Wil Riker, late of Picard's crew.
Q's mate, who turned up in a spate of jealousy over his attentions to me, described herself as five billion years in age, and their relationship a billion years less than that.

 Amazon.co.uk: Q: Books: Luther Blissett   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Q is the working name of a papal spy trying to keep a lid on the Reformation, particularly on the Anabaptist radicalism which is its form most dangerous to the social order, and for decades he watches, and occasionally gets in close and betrays.
In the end, Gert and Q are left with more in common than the past they share--the rules are changing and the board is being cleared, and there is time for one last crucial intervention...
So, despite the blurb, ‘Q’ is not really a thriller about the unmasking of a spy, but rather an examination of Reformation politics and a commentary on the use of religion and power, but told through the eyes a man fighting on the losing side.

 The Lost Sayings Gospel Q
Q 10:13-15 announces the coming judgment explicitly with the view to two Galilean towns, Chorazin and Bethsaida: even Tyre and Didon will be better off in the coming judgment.
Q's characterization of Jesus as the all-knowing one could be used to enhance his authority as a self-referential speaker in the pronouncement stories Mark already had from his own community.
However, the very distinctiveness of the Q material as shown by the recent redaction-critical studies of Q is in itself an indication that this material did exist as a separate entity at some stage in the development of the synoptic tradition.

 The implications of the Gospel of Q in modern-day Christianity
Because the Gospel of Q is of no real significance to conservative Christians, we will restrict the remainder of this essay to a liberal point of view.
Q does not contain stories of the virgin birth, miracles, salvation, speaking in tongues, apostles, clergy, the Eucharist, heaven, hell, and dozens of other topics that later played major roles in Christian belief.
Assuming that Q did exist, one is led to the belief that most of modern-day Christian beliefs and rituals have little or nothing to do with the beliefs and teachings of the immediate followers of Jesus.

 Q
Q has been postulated because Christian theologians have been able to reconstruct the development of the gospels far better if they can assume that there was a written source that the authors of mainly the three synoptic gospels (Mark, Matthew and Luke) used in their efforts of writing.
Elements of Q have been reconstructed, based on priorities and style found in the synoptic gospels.
It is believed that Q did not contain elements regarding the birth and infancy of Jesus, nor did it contain any passion narratives.
