Little Q (Movie Character)
Sometimes, you can watch a movie and be absolutely blown away by an actor or a performance. This is certainly the case with Little Q, starring Simon Yam.
In the majority of the films in which Q appears, he is restricted to a behind-the-scenes role. However, in Octopussy and Licence to Kill, he actually participates in the field.
Q is a person
Q (also known as R) is the head of the fictional research and development department of the British Secret Service. He appears in the James Bond novels and movies, but is never referred to by name. In the film Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace, he was played by actor John Cleese. In Skyfall, the role was taken over by Ben Whishaw, who gave the character a more youthful interpretation.
He is also a Star Trek character, appearing in the Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Picard series. He is a powerful being with the ability to manipulate time, space, and even the laws of physics.
He frequently aids the Enterprise crew by teleporting them to different locations. In the episode All Good Things, he repays Picard for his help by transporting him, the crew, and Vash to Sherwood Forest, where they dress as Robin Hood and Maid Marian, respectively. He then reveals that the trial of humanity is not over.
Q is a department
After majorly botching an assignment, Copenhagen’s maverick detective Carl Morck is relegated to Department Q, where he and his team investigate cold cases. But when two murders bear a striking resemblance to an unsolved case from over a decade ago, Morck and his team find themselves drawn into a deadly conspiracy.
In his search for answers, Morck will cross paths with a woman stuck in a desperate marriage, whose husband refuses to tell her where he goes, what he does or how long he will be gone. His investigation will also take him to the island of Bornholm and a hidden cult.
After a meeting with M and Moneypenny, Bond asks Q to get access to Blofeld so he can question him about Project Heracles. Q reluctantly agrees. He then shows off his new hairless Sphynx cat and outfits Bond with a Geiger Counter Wristwatch, Underwater Camera and a Miniature Rebreather.
Q is a character
Q is a character from the James Bond series of movies and novels. He is the head of Q branch, the fictional research and development division of the British secret service. He appears in 22 of the 25 main Bond films, although he does not appear in the novels by Ian Fleming or in Live and Let Die. He is usually referred to as Major Boothroyd in the films, but since the film From Russia With Love he has been known simply as Q.
In the Star Trek episode “Hide and Q,” Q forces the Enterprise crew to participate in a war game against monsters that he summoned. If Commander William Riker rejects his powers, Q will leave them alone. He loses the wager and is forced to merge with the Continuum.
A comedic version of Q appears in the non-Eon 1967 spoof Casino Royal, played by Geoffrey Bayldon. In the 1983 rogue Bond movie Never Say Never Again, the character is portrayed by Alec McCowen and referred to as Algernon or Algy (his opening line is that it had been a very long time without a Bond adventure). He shows no disdain for Bond and expresses gratitude for being called out of retirement.
Q is a monster
Q is a movie character who is a prehistoric creature that terrorizes New York City. It is described as a winged serpent with four claws and wings. The film is a talon-sharp exploitation flick, but it manages to rise above its low-budget roots thanks to Larry Cohen’s taut direction and the world-weary performances of its cast.
In the episode “Deja Q”, Q transports Picard and his crew to Sherwood Forest where they find themselves cast as Robin Hood, the Merry Men, and Maid Marian. In the subsequent episode, he tries to repay the crew by helping them with their romantic problems.
In “Monsters”, Guinan tells Bond that if he needs equipment, Q can handle it. This is a running gag in the Bond movies, as Q’s gadgets are often destroyed due to either their misuse or Bond’s recklessness (e.g., the Glastron jet boat in Casino Royale and the Aston Martin Vantage in The Living Daylights). In one of his rare appearances outside the series, Q meets Picard’s ancestor Renee.
