Star Trek: The Next Generation

Time's Arrow (2) - S6-E1

Corrected entry: An aged, white haired Samuel Clemens angrily accuses Data and Guinan of introducing future technology that will corrupt the late 19th Century, and he threatens to expose them to the authorities. The elderly Clemens is thus portrayed as extremely paranoid of future technology. In reality, even before his old age, Samuel Clemens LOVED new technology, the more exotic, the better. In real life, Sam Clemens owned one of the very first telephones and the first typewriters, and he appeared in a Thomas Edison film when moving pictures were still in their infancy. In real life, Clemens was also a personal friend of Nikola Tesla, and he was known to visit the inventor's laboratory to marvel at all the truly futuristic technological wonders.

Correction: Worried about future tech being revealed doesn't make Clemens paranoid of future tech. He's just worried that Data & Giunan could change history by revealing it. These are 2 different aspects of his personality and one doesn't have anything to do with the other.

Answer: He brought the Borg to the Alpha Quadrant and showed them that it was full of worlds waiting to be assimilated. Guinan's homeworld was their first stop, and they assimilated everyone and took over the planet, leaving The Survivors of her race without a home. Q is ultimately responsible for that.

Captain Defenestrator

By the time Q takes the Enterprise to meet the Borg, Guinan already knew who they were and they had already destroyed her world. Therefore the above answer can not be right. I believe Guinan is much more than she appears, and her people have had encounters with the Q in the past. It is these interactions, that obviously were not pleasant, that fuels her distrust.

oldbaldyone

That's what the above answer is saying. Q brought the Borg to the Alpha Quadrant (not Earth) and the Borg destroyed Guinan's home world in the late 2200's, which is why she hates Q. Although she met Q in 2160 and they both saw each other as enemies right away.
