John de Lancie, best known for his role as Q in Star Trek: The Next Generation, will lend his voice to the lead role in Quantum Conundrum, Square Enix and developer Airtight Games have announced.

In the game, de Lancie takes the lead role as the wacky and endlessly inventive Professor Fitz Quadwrangle. Hopelessly lost in another dimension, Professor Quadwrangle is determined to guide his nephew through his extremely hazardous, manor home.

"The professor's character is funny, a bit bizarre, and a great joy to perform," said de Lancie. "If players have half as much fun with the game as I did playing the character, then they'll be having a great time."

Quantumn conundrum is a first-person puzzle game from Portal co-creator Kim Swift and is scheduled for release this summer on PC, PSN and XBLA.
