If there is a character I loathe more than Trelane it is Q. Those two and Jar-Jar Binks should be banished to a far off planet in a galaxy far, far away...

More Dangling Threads...

The "Gods" in Who Mourns for Adonais? They're somewhere.

The Apple: what happened after Kirk destroyed the computer that was keeping their planet habitable and providing them with a reason to live? Did that little group of--what was it 34 people?--manage to survive and "thrive"? Also, someone made Vaal!

The Doomsday Machine: Someone made that!

Catspaw: there's no suggestion that Sylvia and Korob are the last of their kind.

I, Mudd: Spock says..."The androids are being reprogrammed. Their original purpose was to adapt this planet for productive use. They'll begin that work again." Okay, someone has to use it. Someone put the androids there to begin with.

The Gods were alluded to having "died" in the episode by Appolo(sp)
I guess the same folks that made the Oblisk on the Native American planet made Vaal too??LOL

Yeah, I allways wondered about the Doomsday Machine...

Sylvia and Korob gave the impression they were the last, but i don;t think there was any direct dialouge. But i am sure in their true forms, being made out of pipe cleaners a balls of fluff was not good.

No...the Gods were specifically stated as "not dead" and "immortal".

Quote:
CAROLYN: What happened to the others? Artemis, Hera?
APOLLO: They returned to the cosmos on the wings of the wind.
CAROLYN: You mean they died?
APOLLO: No, not as you understand it. We're immortal, we gods. But the Earth changed. Your fathers changed. They turned away until we were only memories. A god cannot survive as a memory. We need love, admiration, worship, as you need food.
CAROLYN: You really think you're a god?
APOLLO: In a real sense, we were gods. We had the power of life and death. We could have struck out from Olympus and destroyed. We have no wish to destroy, so we came home again. It was an empty place without worshippers, but we had no strength to leave, so we waited, all of us, through the long years.
then, at the end:
Quote:
APOLLO: Zeus, Hermes, Hera, Aphrodite. You were right. Athena, you were right. The time has passed. There is no room for gods. Forgive me, my old friends. Take me. Take me.
The implication being that his old friends "took" him away from the planet to whatever plane they are on.

That raises an interesting point though, Eliza: is a God without worshippers still a God?

Were Apollo and his corhorts true Gods, or simply regarded as such by a primitive species? As beings, they may well be immortal, but can a God 'retire' and still serve in that function?

HIs dialogue makes it sound like the worshippers are what make and break Gods, regardless of whether that entity itself lives on eternally.

Wait, isn't there a thread on this?? I agree, Apollo, at least, seems to think it's the worshippers who make the God....
