Yup, and even then he had no idea she was around.

Nick was commenting he only met her when depowered. I was correcting him. ;)

In Q Who it does seem like she some sort of power. What it is or how powerful is really unknown. We do know there are other 'all-powerful' beings out there.

Thankfully, that was left behind and it just turns out she is a great listener and several hundred years old.

What "power" are you talking about? I don't recall her ever being hinted to at having some kind of power.

You don't think that a near-god shitting himself when he saw her might suggest that she's got something up her sleeve that might threaten him?

Of course she's different but Mcavoy declared it as her power. The only thing I saw was that Q couldn't read her or even tell she was there without directly seeing her.

He was pretty unnerved by her, for sure.

I'm unnerved by skins with G. G. Allin tattoos, but that doesn't mean that they have a "power."

Well she did make a hand gesture very similar to Q's as if she were preparing to defend herself/find him off -- something that would be difficult against an omnipotent being if you didn't have some sort of trick to back it up.

Maybe I should have had been more specific. Anyway, what would she have to make Q actually nervous around her? She had to have something.
