Artemis was one of the Beings who would be recognized by Humans as one of the Greek gods. Nicknamed "Missy" by a young Mark McHenry.

Background[edit | edit source]

Artemis was a non-corporeal entity, the twin sister of Apollo and daughter of Zeus. Artemis was virtually immortal, sensual, captivating, beautiful, with an unnaturally symmetrical face and body. She was interested in love despite her reputation as a virgin goddess. She was also arrogant, smug, spiteful, and powerful. (NF novel: Being Human)

She had a moon, a planet, and several Federation starships named after her, including the USS Artemis, on which Spock once served as third officer.

History[edit | edit source]

Apollo said Zeus, his sister Artemis, and Athene knew Earth well 5,000 years ago. (TOS novelization: Who Mourns for Adonais?)

She and Anubis were allowed to roam free after Apollo died, while Zeus restricted the other Beings for a century. (NF novel: Gods Above)

Artemis took an interest in young Mark McHenry, a descent of Carolyn Palamas and Apollo, and visited him on a regular basis, although only McHenry could perceive her. In 2348, when McHenry was eight, an incident with Artemis caused Mark’s father to leave and never return.

McHenry and Artemis later had a physical relationship. McHenry angered Artemis in the year 2357 when he rejected her and joined Starfleet Academy. McHenry barely escaped Artemis’ wrath with his life.

In 2376, Artemis wanted McHenry to act as an ambassador or herald for the Beings, as they had guided the ancient Greeks to their golden age, who offered to mass-produce an ambrosia that would improve mental faculty and slow the aging process. When he rejected her offer, she manifested a fleet of vessels to attack the USS Excalibur, which reformed into a large warship with a batting ram. (NF novel: Being Human)

Artemis visited McHenry while his body was seemingly dead aboard Excalibur. Moke saw her, but Dr. Selar did not.

Zeus trapped her and the other Beings within an energy vortex. (NF novel: Gods Above)
