Star Trek: The Next Generation

Tapestry - S6-E15

Corrected entry: When the Away Team beams to Sickbay with Picard at the beginning of the episode, Dr. Crusher asks what caused his injury and Worf responds that it was "a compressed teryon beam" from an alien weapon. However, when Picard is telling Q about his regrets he says that if he'd had a real heart he "wouldn't have died from a random energy surge 30 years later." Either Patrick Stewart was ad libbing and no one caught the contradiction, or the left hand didn't know what the right hand was doing on the writing team for that particular script.

Correction: Picard was hit by a Lenarian tetryon beam. If he didn't have the artificial heart, he would have lived. But since he had an artificial heart, a random energy surge in the heart killed him. http://memory-alpha.org/en/wiki/Tapestry.

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.
