In some ways the Traveler appears to possess almost Q like (or at least proto-Q like) powers, so has there ever been any interaction or suggested connection or relationship between the two in the existing Star Trek canon that might shed a little light on that?

One way to rephrase the question (or consider it from a different angle) could perhaps be to ask.

Are the Traveler's perhaps an early offshoot of the Q (from before they became the Q) or might they be considered an example of parallel evolution heading in the same direction as the Q but currently at an earlier stage.

That would perhaps fall too far within the realms of "primarily opinion based" however so I leave my question as originally formulated.

    @Randal'Thor : that question asks if the traveler could become a Q which I think is adequately answered by the fact that "anything can become a Q if the Q will it", this question is more along the lines of "are the Travelers in some way related to the Q" which isn't the same question at all :) – Pelinore Dec 13 '18 at 15:48
  • There are many powerful species in the canon. Should we say that Nagilum, Organians, and Douwds are also related to Q? The Traveler has some neat abilities, but they pale in comparison to Q’s. – Ham Sandwich Dec 14 '18 at 3:01
  • @HamSandwich : not including Trelane in that list? – Pelinore Dec 14 '18 at 7:26

    The only known connection is in the non-canon Q Continuum novel, where the female Q appears impressed that Wesley had an association with The Traveler. Outside of that, presumably Q has knowledge of the other, since Q apparently knows basically everything of import (and a species as advanced as The Traveler would certainly not be considered unimportant). – Ham Sandwich Dec 14 '18 at 23:36
