“A Space Trip With Q”

Every time I hear about “Q” and his (or her) imbecilic followers, I think about a short story I wrote for an assignment in Mr. Virgilio’s fifth grade class. It was called “A Space Trip With Q,” except the title villain was a reptilian alien who invaded a ship and ate its crew.

His full name was “Quillordovian,” but he kept telling his human quarry that they could call him “Q” because he knew his full name was hard to pronounce. He was pretty droll and chatty for an immense carnivorous lizard.  He kinda wanted to engage, I guess.
