The many images of god are presented to James T. Kirk, Sybok, Doctor Leonard McCoy and Spock in 2287 on the planet Nimbus III.

A god is an entity that is worshiped and offered submission to by the followers of a spiritual or religious belief system. The concept may include gender, in which case the feminine form is known as a goddess. Most gods are of a supernatural nature, with their empirical existences thus being unverifiable; examples of such gods include Uzaveh, the key Andorian god, and the god known in Federation Standard simply as "God", from three major Terran religions. Other gods are in fact entities that are empirically known to exist and whom non-believers simply classify as alien life-forms; examples of these gods include the Prophets, the non-corporeal life-forms found in the Bajoran wormhole that are worshiped by a great many Bajorans, and the Founders, the species of shape-shifters that founded the Dominion and who are worshiped by the Vorta and the Jem'Hadar. (DS9 - Worlds of Deep Space Nine novel: Andor: Paradigm; DS9 episode: "Emissary", et al.)

Klingon mythology holds that the Klingon gods were killed millennia ago when the Klingon people turned against them. (DS9 episodes: "Homefront", "You Are Cordially Invited", VOY episode: "Barge of the Dead")

There is some evidence the klingon gods or at least some of them may have been based on ancient visiting species from other worlds such as the Furies considering that there are Furies who resemble the Klingon Fek'lhr and that they ruled so many other races in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants.(VOY novel: The Final Fury)

Among the Klingon goddesses were Kar-Tela and Tuq'mor. (DS9 - Day of Honor novel: Armageddon Sky)

In the mirror universe, the Vorta and the Jem'Hadar likewise worshiped the Founders as gods. (ST - Mirror Universe novel: Rise Like Lions)

Q once portrayed himself as God to Jean-Luc Picard during a critical heart failure. (TNG episode: "Tapestry")

In the TNG novel: Q-Zone, a superbeing much like Q was featured, called The One. When Q asked 0 who "The One" was, 0 said "...he invented monotheism." Thus, the One claims to be the God in three of Earth's biggest religions; however, there is no evidence for the truth of this, as The One could claim to be any entity it wishes.

In 2265, Niklon claimed that, unlike himself, the other inhabitants of his world were "gods" and "goddesses". (TOS comic: "Dark Traveler")
