In 2357, Zeus’ left eye was missing and appeared with a red beard with gray streaks. He wore a cape and had pet ravens.
History[edit | edit source]
Zeus kept the other Beings locked away for a hundred years to keep them from demanding vengeance for the death of Apollo. Anubis and Artemis were the only two allowed to roam free. (NF novel: Gods Above)
During this time of imprisonment, Zeus and the rest of the Greek Gods ruled over a small planet, which they remade in the image of Ancient Greece. When the crew of the Enterprise encountered them on the planet, Zeus forced the crew to live through The Odyssey. (TOS comic: "What Fools These Mortals Be..")
Zeus was betrayed, and the others were released in the Gateways Crisis of 2376. The Beings repaid his efforts by locking him away in a “sideways dimension” with their combined powers. Zeus trapped the other Beings into an energy vortex at the expense of much of his life force. What was left of his “inner essence” remained within Mark McHenry, who vowed to guard against the Beings’ return. (NF novel: Gods Above)
Remarks[edit | edit source]
In the 1990s, when an unexpected visitor arrived with a connection to his mother twenty years prior, Khan considered only the potential benefits. He quoted, “All strangers and beggars are from Zeus.” (TOS - The Eugenics Wars novel: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 2)
In 2267, Apollo described his history to Carolyn Palamas. He said Zeus took the mortal woman Latona, his mother, saying that Zeus intended to care, love and protect her, and he wanted the same for Palamas. (TOS novelization: Who Mourns for Adonais?)
In 2273, when James T. Kirk first saw the newly-refitted USS Enterprise, he compared her to how Aphrodite must have been when Zeus first raised her up from the sea. (TOS novelization: The Motion Picture)
Prior to 2277, a temple to Zeus was built overlooking the city of New Athens on planet Macedon III. It was a famous attraction observed by Lieutenant Commander Nyota Uhura. (TOS - Star Trek II Short Stories short story: "Under Twin Moons")
