Think that was me paraphrasing the character of 'Data' from one of the STTNG episodes.

But Q didn't treat humans as pets, I / Data said Q acted as if he had a fondness for the human species - much like we humans have a fondness for our own pets.

Your talking about the remake, and yep it was pretty good I thought, right up till the last episode which had me gaging WTF!!!s for a while.
