Mythology was the collection of myths. Similarly, legends or space legends described stories that were retold from the distant past.

T'Pol and James T. Kirk both observed, on separate occasions, that mythology sometimes had its basis in fact. (TOS: "Who Mourns for Adonais?"; ENT: "Chosen Realm")

Stories from the Bible were considered myths by some. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

In 2268 on the planet Amerind, an amnesiac Captain Kirk had appeared from the walls of "the Temple," an event foretold by Amerind legend. The skies had darkened three times since their harvest, with the last time being the worst of all. Amerind legend predicted such danger and promised that the Wise Ones would send a god to save them by rousing the temple spirit and making the sky grow quiet. (TOS: "The Paradise Syndrome")

The planet Aldea and its inhabitants were called mythical until the USS Enterprise-D discovered the planet in 2364. (TNG: "When The Bough Breaks")

In 2365, the hole in space created by Nagilum reminded Worf of an ancient Klingon legend about a "giant black space creature" that was said to devour entire vessels. (TNG: "Where Silence Has Lease")

There was no word for "mythology" in the Romulan language. According to Ramdha, they preferred the term "news", reflecting the continued relevance of ancient archetypes and narratives in their daily lives. (PIC: "The End is the Beginning")
