The Greek gods were a humanoid species, possessed of powerful psychokinetic abilities, that once visited the Mediterranean region of ancient Earth around 2700 BC. These psychokinetic abilities made these beings appear god-like to the simple shepherds and tribesmen of early Greece, and so these beings were worshiped as the Greek gods as they resided on Mount Olympus.

Humanity gradually outgrew the need of these gods until they were only memories. Unable to survive without the love, admiration and worship they thrived on, the aliens departed Earth to eventually settle on Pollux IV.

In 2267, the USS Enterprise encountered the species on Pollux IV, where the last remaining god, Apollo, attempted to force the crew of the ship to worship them once again. (TOS: "Who Mourns for Adonais?")

The Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 125) dated the visitation of the Greek gods to around the year 3000 BC. has theorized that the Olympian gods may have also visited Vulcan and Romulus, centuries earlier before coming to Earth, to explain how words like Vulcan, Romulus, Remus, Centurion and Senate, etc. came to be used by all three races. also went on to speculate that the Gods may have been responsible for separating the Vulcan and Romulan races.

Songs of praise to the Greek gods and accounts of their deeds were included in the Homeric Hymns. (TNG: "Darmok")

Greek godsEdit

The Greek gods Hestia, Gaia, and Helios were referenced by name in the poems dedicated to them in the Homeric Hymns, which was seen in the episode "Darmok".

Apocrypha Edit

In the Star Trek: New Frontier novels Being Human and Gods Above, it is revealed that not only the Greek gods but also those of Egyptian and Norse mythology were part of the alien race who visited Earth, and that despite Adonis' belief that they had all perished they did survive.
