Apollo (TOS-33)
Apollo (TOS-33)

A being worshipped by ancient Greeks on Earth as god of the sun, prophecy, music, medicine and poetry. Apollo and his fellow “gods” had an extra organ in their chests that apparently gave them the ability to channel considerable energy, allowing them to demonstrate god-like powers, such as the ability to generate storms and thunderbolts and to grow into a towering giant. While the others of his kind died of loneliness after they left Mount Olympus, Apollo claimed, he settled on Pollux IV, but over the centuries grew to miss the adulation he had gotten from the Humans. Apollo seized the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 with a giant “hand” in space, and tried to force the crew to live on Pollux IV and worship him as their god. The crew refused to comply and, discovering that his powers came from the temple he had constructed, used the ship’s weapons to destroy the temple and leave Apollo bereft of his powers. Rejected, he spread himself upon the wind to join his fellow gods.[1]
