Related: Do the Q Exist In the Abrams Star Trek Universe?

In an answer to the question above, it is established that Q is present in the Abramsverse. Is there anywhere that the Q is not? That is, is it ever established that there is a place in the universe or multiverse that the Q has either never been to or is unable to visit?

The Q are clearly described as omnipotent or at least nearly omnipotent with respect to the regular Star Trek galaxy, so Q can presumably catch the vapors of Aldebaran, blow up Ferengi trading ships, or tour pre-classical Andoria at his pleasure. Is it fair to extrapolate that there are no places, dimensions, rifts, anomalies, etc. that are truly off-limits to the Q?

    Gödel's incompleteness theorems apply here. Even if one episode said yes they can go everywhere- there's nothing to stop another from inventing something bigger they can't access. – lucasbachmann Apr 18 at 19:41

    @lucasbachmann If Gödel wants a say on Star Trek canon, he can submit a spec script like anyone else. – Paul D. Waite Apr 18 at 20:39

    @lucasbachmann I do not think that Star Trek is an axiomatic formal system with omega-consistency, so I don't see how these theorems can possibly apply, even though it is certainly fashionable to refer to Gödel wherever it seems remotely reasonable to establish a connection. – Philip Klöcking Apr 19 at 9:36
