Quinns column

Quinn's column

"My Corner of the Continuum" was an example of the philosophical treatises of Quinn, a member of the Q Continuum, as presented to Kathryn Janeway and Tuvok during their visit to the Continuum as part of the asylum request for Quinn aboard the USS Voyager.

The column was presented in a magazine titled The New as part of a manifestation of the Continuum that Q believed would be comprehensible to Human minds. It was this treatise, in particular a philosophical argument "I'm Ready to Die; How About You?" that marked the beginning of Quinn's fall from grace within the Continuum. It was his first public position on the acceptability and necessity of suicide and started an enormous debate within Q society.

The debate escalated and eventually resulted in Quinn being declared mentally unstable and confined within a rogue comet for nearly three hundred years. (VOY: "Death Wish")
