During Ulysses’ ten-year journey home after the events of the Trojan War, he survived encounters with Charybdis and Scylla, as well as the Cyclops, Aeolus, cannibals, and the Sirens. These challenges were orchestrated by omnipotent Beings, including Zeus. (TOS comic: "What Fools These Mortals Be..")
In the year 2267, the USS Enterprise discovered Zeus, Aeolus and four other Beings. They resided in Mount Olympus, but had opened a dimensional warp to a planetoid and reformed it to resemble Ancient Greece. The Beings challenged James T. Kirk, Leonard McCoy, and Spock to survive the confrontations Ulysses had faced millennia ago, which the landing party recognized from the Odyssey. After fleeing from Aeolus aboard a small sailing ship, they encountered Scylla and Charybdis. Repeated phaser fire set to de-materialize was able to repel the giant creatures.

In 2410, a situation resembling the ancient myth occurred when the Tzenkethi began a genocidal war upon the Hur'q. The two sides fought, resulting in a catastrophic ravaging of Deep Space 9. (STO mission: "Scylla and Charybdis")
