4. Q

Q is the most powerful being on this list: A time-traveling, teleporting, virtually omnipotent member of the immortal race known as the Q Continuum. Throughout Star Trek: The Next Generation's run, he would periodically pop up and sow some extradimensional mischief. The very fact of his god-like powers – and the fact that he seems to enjoy using them mostly to taunt and toy with the Enterprise crew – means Q has to rank high on any Star Trek villains list, even if he sometimes played a more benign role when he felt like it. Always ready with a sarcastic quip, and played to the hilt by guest star John de Lancie, Q is the kind of antagonist who made any episode he appeared in worth watching.
