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")
- 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.
