Zeus was one of the many names of the most powerful of the Beings. He was the last to leave Earth. Also known as Jupiter, Woden, Amen-Re, Takami-Musubi, Odin, and Santa Claus. He prefers Old Father.

In 2357, Zeus’ left eye was missing and appeared with a red beard with gray streaks. He wore a cape and had pet ravens.

Unlike most Beings, he drew power from others believing in themselves, rather than from being worshipped. Moke is his most recent son. (NF novel: Gods Above)

Chronus and Rhea were the parents of both Zeus and his wife Hera. (NF novel: Being Human)

History Edit

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 foresaw a golden age coming for the Federation. (NF novel: Being Human)

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)
