    hallo sir,

    im an author. i would like to send you a gift.
    it is my first book, a self-help/philosophy.

    inside i pay a tribute to some series i considered both important
    and helpful IRL. STTNG for sure one of these series. The character of Q is mentioned, so i searched for the actor. i thought that you should have
    your characters “heritage.”

    i will need a way of your choice (mail, etc) to send you the epub file.

    thx for your great and effortless acting on that role.
    best regards

  2. Hi John,

    I recently learned you’re from Philadelphia. I too grew up in the City as did my mother. Since you two are the same age, she asked me about the schools you attended and the general part of town where you lived.


  3. Martin Brantford, Cambridge says:

    John, here’s my email
    if you have any advice on how to deal with my situation I’d appreciate. I moved, got ‘tagged’ by kids at a bar, then got my brain attacked by greys, all in the name of you, q(you’re orders apparently). now I’m trying to stay open to possibilities while trying to figure out why the hell this group doesn’t like me, and what happened. was it all a series of parallel world’s or is it two groups, or was it the same group who just wanted to screw me. if you have any advice on where to go and how to to deal with the greys please, please respond in an email. they have used you as q as justification for this attack surely some of the q stick together.

    I am currently watching
    All the star trek series
    And I am very enthused
    With the character that u portrayed my hats off to you sir
    U are a phenomenal actor!

  6. Devon says:

    I am of no consequence but you are a seriously underestimated actor!

  7. Mr. de Lancie:

    We met recently at the Star Trek Las Vegas convention and briefly discussed a Star Trek: The Next Generation podcast that I co-host called Earl Grey. We would be interested in interviewing you for 30-45 minutes for an episode of the podcast.

    During the interview, we would be asking you about both Star Trek and non-Star Trek roles. You can also promote your current or upcoming work to our listeners. You can check out our podcast at

    Please let me know if you are interested and we can schedule a date and time that works best for your schedule. You had mentioned that it may need to be on short notice and that would work fine for us.

    I look forward to hearing from you and I hope that you’re having a great day!

  8. Elise nichter says:

    How is your summer going for you,I really love how you did your convintion going on there

  9. Andrew says:

    There was a lot of great voice work done for Starcraft 2 your Alarak was fantastic! He quickly became my favorite character even though I don’t usually like his archetype. Well done, I hope you get a chance to do more voice work!

  10. John, you are a marvelous actor. I believe every character you play. You make it so real it’s hard to not be immersed in your characters. Just watched WHAT ARE SHIPS FOR a second time and truly appreciate your talents not to mention bringing all the great feelings of original Star Trek episodes back to life. SO good to see you on screen! You’re incredible! How do you remain so young looking? What secret potion have you found, young man? Amazing!

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

  11. Matthew Dupee says:

    Mr. De Lancie,

    My name is Matthew. I wanted to post to say thank you for your appearance in Dayton at the Scopes Festival. It was great to meet you and share a few words with you after the show, Front Page News. I played the role of John T. Scopes. I am an aspiring actor and would love to hear from you about any advice, tips or help you could give. I am a huge fan of all your work, especially your role in Breaking Bad. It would be great to hear from you.

    Many Thanks,

    Matthew Dupee

  12. Dear Mr de Lancie,
    I just wanted to express my admiration for your work on Star Trek TNG which I think is masterful and I thoroughly enjoyed . The weight of your performance as an actor bears an immense gravitational pull. I will look for more of you work.
    Best Regards from Lima, Perú.

  13. Wesley Byrd says:

    Dear Mr. de Lancie, I very much enjoyed meeting you at the Rhea County court house and your words about the Darrow statue. I wanted to thank you for your attendance at our first 2017 performance of “Front Page News”. I hope you enjoyed your visit to our little mountain town. I was very impressed that you took time to visit with each of the players as you left the show. Thank you for your grace and time, it meant a lot to the cast.
    When we spoke, you related to me a story about your good friend that had played the “Judge John Raulston” part in the “Tennessee Monkey Trial”. If you will please remind me of his name. I want to see if there is a video of the show and watch it.

    Thank you so much,
    Wes Byrd (Judge John Raulston)

  14. Trescha Keegan says:

    Hello John,

    You may not remember me but we were neighbors at an apartment building in N.Hollywood (across from Universal City). Anyway, you gave me your father’s old manual typewriter and I still have it. I’m moving out of the country and downsizing and I wanted to ask you if you wanted your father’s typewriter back. Yes, I still have it and it’s in great shape. Let me know, I will ship it back to you.

  15. Doris Jackson says:

    John, it was very nice to meet you at the Clarence Darrow celebration dinner and to spend time with you in Dayton. Best wishes and may we meet again. Doris

  16. Adriel Ray says:

    Hello sir. My name is Adriel and I just wanted to say that I am in the Physics program at my University and part of my inspiration is due to your parts as Q in the Star Trek series. One day when I create or do something worth while, I will remember all the times in my past that showed me to not give up on my dreams to always reach out there for knowledge. You of course will be in my thoughts at that point. I just wanted to say thank you for being a part of my inspiration, even though at the time it was just another job for you probably.

  17. Melanie says:

    Hello Mr. De Lancie

    I wanted to ask you for a signature.
    It’s a birthday present for my boyfriend who is a huge fan of the blizzard character “Alarak” (Heroes of the Storm) and Breaking Bad. But mostly Alarak. 🙂

    I dont know how this works, because I’ve never asked somebody for a signature before.
    Is it okay if I leave you my email adress?
    It is .

    I’d love a picture of Alarak or Alarak + you on the photo. And maybe even a little Alarak Quote (from Heroes of the Storm). Feel free to improvise something.
    Like: “For my groveling primate *name*” I dont know, I’m not that experienced with Alarak Quotes. 🙂

    Oh by the way, my boyfriends Name is “Michel”.
    His humour is… very dark. So he’ll love whatever the Highlord of the Tal’darim has to say. 🙂

    I wish you all the best and I’m hoping to hear from you!

  18. Shawn Wray says:

    Mr. de Lancie,

    I could gush for hours in a long letter telling you how much I’ve enjoyed your performances through the years. Q was always a highlight of my Trek fandom. And I was overjoyed when you turned up in Breaking Bad, even though your performance broke my heart.

    Congratulations on your role in the upcoming episode of Star Trek Continues. I am a fan of that series and I can’t wait to see what you bring to the table.

    I do a podcast on my website at called The Prime Direction. The podcast is a project where I do one on one interviews with Star Trek fans and people who have been affected by the show. We discuss their fandom from their first memory of the show to the present. Mostly I talk to fans of all walks of life but I have been fortunate enough to chat with a few people in the entertainment industry. I had Michael Jan Friedman on, who is the author of a ton of Star Trek novels and Marvel comics. I have also interviewed Vic Mignogna and Michele Specht of Star Trek Continues.

    I would love to have a conversation with you. If you’re interested you can contact me by email at and we will work out a time.

    Thank you so much for your time,
    Shawn Wray

  19. Agata Maternowska says:

    Dear John De Lancie!
    My name is Agata. I’m from Poland and I’m writing this because I want to thank You for making my life a little happier. My life isn’t the life I could wish anyone, even worst enemies. I’m only sixteen, but I hope You won’t take my words only as a teenager lament. Everybody will agree with me if I say that mother shouldn’t tell her children they can die and she won’t care (like my mother says and it isn’t just a joke…twice I had chance to get to psychiatric hospital cause of all of this). I don’t know things like love, family, love feelings, but I can live without that. Only good thing is that I have emphathy for others… Thank You for cheering me up and making me fight with my sicknesses (bipolar disorder, depression, stress). I wonder how does it feel to hear that I matter in this world…all I want is a simply hug ad words like: you’re important, you matter, you’re cool etc. I sound like I make a victim of myself, and it isn’t my goal…ah, I’m so bad at talking to people, I’m so sorry. I wish I could meet You, like many people did, but unfortunately it is and will always be impossible cause of my condition and problems with money. At least I can leave my gratitude here. I wish You only good and happy things in life. Maybe I shouldn’t write this, but I simply had to. I send huge respect and greetings from far away Poland
    Ps. Sorry for mistakes, I was trying write it clear 🙂

  20. Nathan Tabor says:

    So, the question has been asked, the internet search has been performed, nothing has been found…

    What are the chances of getting Mr. de Lancie to dress as Q and do a facepalm just to be meme’d? I know its silly and ridiculous, but most of the other STTNG have epic facepalm photos and I can’t find any for Q doing one. It would be amazing to have.

    I apologize for boiling his career down to a desire for a meme, but sometimes the simple things in life are the most rewarding.


    A fan of Q and Mr. de Lancie

  21. Raizzan says:

    Mr De Lancie,

    I have to Admit, first I had no Idea who you were. But since I play Alarak in my favourite MOBA Heroes of the Storm, I hear your Voice every day. And its by far the coolest voice ive ever heard in any video game.
    Good Job!

    You would make many Fans very Happy if you could Work with Blizzard again to make anoter Voice Acting for the Alarak Announcer.

    Kind Regards,


  22. Claudio Sonego says:

    Hello Mr. De Lancie,
    I’m an editor for “Inside Star Trek Magazine”, the official italian Trek magazine.
    I’m writing an article about some connection between Star Trek and the music.
    In this article I’ll write about your father. I’d like to have some information and material, if possible.
    If you can, I wait for a direct contact.
    Thank you for the attention.
    Claudio Sonego

  23. Sean Robert Meaney says:

    Dear Mr Delancie, might I suggest Q in the next Startek movie because the man made black hole in movie one got the borgs attention and they should be there by now. Its obviously a job for Q.

  24. Elise nichter says:

    it’s me again I hope you have a great happy birthday and I made a birthday message to you and I hope you loved my drawings

  25. Lee Stamp says:

    I hope you don’t take this the wrong way but what I would like to say first is that I can’t speak for everyone…. By now I’m sure you are sick of hearing people shout out “Hey Q snap your finger for me and”……. Well there is a long list of things people have said. I say if you are feeling that way then I can fully understand…. I truly believe that you was not brought in to do a show enough… You were in a small handful of TNG… Some on Voyager… And hardly none on Deep Space Nine….. Not sure why you were not asked to be more a part of the show… It would have been nice to see you poke your head in a few of those “Enterprise” Episodes….but was disappointed to not see you in them maybe it was all by choice…. It does not matter I truly don’t think people appreciate the “True” impact you
    Brought to the table… I give massive credit to all those involved on camera and behind camera…. But John you brought something to all those shows that no one else ever could and I mean ever!!!…. The reason as a young man I even wanted to see Star Trek the next generation was to see if it was another episode with the powerful “Q”… And to see what new tricks he had up his sleeve and harass the crew in a funny twisted way….. In more ways then none if it wasn’t for you…. I truly don’t think I would be a Trek fan…. The first villain that comes to mind when I think of Star Trek is not the Romulans….or the Ferengi…. Or even the powerful Borg…. No none of those (although great villains) the only one I wish to care to see is the character you played John and that’s Q… You deserve more recognition then what has been given…. I just wish there would have been more of you to see… regardless of if it was because you did not want to commit yourself or they claimed the could not pencil you in ( I doubt that to be true I am sure they could have). It does not matter weather it was one episode or all of them… I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart…. I truly believe because of your character role people were drown into Star Trek….. No I’m not give you all the credit but you deserve more then people have offered…. If I had a chance to talk to you or Patrick Stewart or you…. I would be more interested in seeing you I would be star Struck as they like to say and I’m almost 40!!!! Yes I’m still young I’m a fan of all of them but you John would be the first one on my list. Thank you my Son and my grandson yes I’m sure grandfather at 39!!!!! Little tike just turned 5…. They both like you… Yes my silly old grandson says “Grandpa”? How come you don’t have nice hair like that guy”(he is pointing to you on a voyager episode)…. Those are the reasons John I admire the impact you still have all these years later. You still got it.

It is much Appreciated I have become very Interested in your programme I find it amazing the projects you under take and the amazing results you get. I my self am Disabled with Muscular Dystrophy and 6 years ago I fell and broke my back so I have been confined to my wheelchair ever since. So I am mostly confined to my home where my parents look after me since this has over taken my life. I have collecting signed Autographs of famous people and wondered if you would be so kind as to get me a picture of your self with autographs on this will really make me happy to receive this.
    Thank you Steven Huckle

  27. Stephanie says:

    I have a photo to send you from the Wrap Party we had at the train station in LA (’93 or ’94). It’s of you and Majel standing outside the venue and I thought you may want a copy of it (I was there because worked on TNG). If so, give me a shout. Sorry, I didn’t know how else to contact you. I hope you’re doing well.

  28. Eric Shields says:

    Mr. de Lancie. I am interested in talking with you in reference to appearing at the inaugural Keystone State Pop Culture Con to be held in Johnstown, PA on August 19th & 20th, 2017.

    If you could please email or call me at 814-502-0864.

    I am Elise nichter and I really love your character discord so much and I hope you will be happy about it,also I have fan arts of you

  30. Eddie Parisi says:

    I used to watch you as Eugene on Days Of Our Lives when I was a child. Mom would watch it and plop me on the floor. I always loved how wacky you were as the crackpot inventor,and then I rediscovered you on Star Trek. I was really young, but I believe they wrote you out of the show in some kind of time machine plot. I liked how you reappeared in the 24th Century. You are a true talent.

  31. Dana Sansom says:

    Had I been lucky enough to have had a son, his middle name would have been ‘Q’.
    Spock was a close ‘second’, but you were the coolest!
    Keep up the good work.

  32. Hi, A Q uestion: I may drive an Audi Q5 in future. Therefore I possibly want to construct a sticker onto the boot to show the character Q. I found a nice picture out of Startrek. But I need to alter it a bit to have the white colour changed into transparent. Therefore is a copyright authorisation required. Where can I get it from? Who would be the appropriate partner for such a request? Thx……

  33. Margaret says:

    Dear Mr. deLancie,

    My grandaughter, who will be turning 13 on February 3rd, is very aware that your birthday is coming up in about 3 months. You are her hero. Elise is autistic, and has a natural ability for drawing cartoon people and writing stories to go with her drawings. She is very aware of you, and all of your many talents, and admires them very much. Please watch the birthday message she has for you on YouTube, and if you could find the time, a message from you to her would be so awesome, you would really make a little girl’s dream come true. She does not have an email, but if you send it to mine, Grandma will make sure she gets it. Here is the link: , and from all of us, we wish you a very Happy Birthday!!!!!!

  34. David Adas says:

    I’m a huge fan of yours. I’ve followed you through TNG, and Voyager.

  35. Mr Delancie –

    I just wanted to say Merry Christmas, and thank you for the entertainment. You’ve changed my life.

  36. ALAN RAYMOND says:

    Dear John,

    We met in Tucson when we worked on Legends of the West, I am in the initial stage of putting together a charity benefit, the Festival of Oral Literature and Music, which traces the evolution of story telling from the Aboriginal, to Classic, to Medieval, to Modern, in Mt. Tamborine, Australia, 3/27/18 – 4/1/18. The Mt. Tamborine Festival of Oral Literature and Music, backed by the Mt. Tamborine Symphony Orchestra – Chorus and the Gold Coast Symphony Orchestra and Chorus to benefit such as the Parkinson’s foundation. Could you be available for a guest appearance and or a story narration?


  37. Alexander Dufrene says:

    Hello Mr. de Lancie. In my childhood, I came across you in both My Little Pony as Discord, and then in Star Trek as Q. And now, I am writing a research paper into the My Little Pony side of things. What I am currently writing about is how such a show can teach children how to be human, considering the fact that there are no human characters (barring the movies). I hope that you will respond to this, as it would be interesting to hear from the perspective of someone who actually works in the show.

  38. Audrey says:

    Hi 🙂 I’ve been watching BronyCons on Youtube and I’d really like to know about the debate that was discussed at BronyCon 2015. Someone asked if you’d seen the debate yesterday and you said ‘They’re not on your ( Bronies ) side. I’m really curious to know who ‘they’ are? Because I’m a Brony! My little girl and I love MLP and I’m thrilled to rediscover Q. She really doesn’t want to see Discord in real life, it would take the magic away for her, but I’m so looking forward to watching Star Trek with her in future years ( she’s only 6 ). Best wishes, looking forward to more Discord too xx

  39. LWayne says:

    Mr. De Lancie

    Your father, an accomplished and world respected Oboist, served in WWII and spoke with Richard Strauss while in Southern Germany about if he ever expected to write an Oboe Concerto. Mr. Strauss answered no, but did come out with one later. Strauss made sure the rights to the US premiere were assigned to your father, John. However, since John was a junior member of the Philadelphia Orchestra, by protocol he was not able to perform instead yielding to the principal oboist, Mr. Tabuteau. Fast forward to today, with Ricardo Pazo, an Oboe Professor in Superior Conservatory of Vigo in Spain writing a Thesis about Richard Strauss’ Oboe Concerto. Mr. Pazo contacted the 103d Infantry Division WWII Association requesting information about your father, however we have no record of the late John De Lancie serving with the 103d. We do know that he was an oboist with the US Army Band during WWII. Mr. Pazo wrote to seek information about your father’s relationship with Mr. Strauss and would appreciate any information you might be willing to provide regarding this matter. His email address is I know this would be of immense help to Mr. Pazo and certainly a fitting tribute to the great work of your father as an oboe virtuoso. With deep honor and respect. Larry
