In this episode of Trekking Through Compliance, we consider the episode Who Mourns for Adonais? which aired on September 22, 1967, Star Date 3468.1.
While approaching Pollux 4, an energy field in the shape of a giant green hand stops the Enterprise dead in space. An apparition wearing a laurel wreath then appears, addresses the crew as his "children," and congratulates them for venturing forth from the hills and valleys of Earth. The apparition invites Kirk and a landing party down to visit, excluding Spock.
The landing party discovers a humanoid who identifies himself as the Roman god Apollo. Apollo says he and the other gods left after the ancient people of Earth stopped worshiping them. Without worshippers, even the immortal gods weaken, and all but Apollo have "spread themselves to the wind" and faded away.
Although Carolyn is in love with Apollo, she puts duty ahead of self when, acting on Kirk's instruction, she rejects Apollo to weaken him. Apollo's power is destroyed when his energy source in the temple is located and blasted out of existence by the Enterprise's phasers. A sorrow-stricken Apollo appeals to the other gods to take him away now that he has realized that there is no room left for gods anymore.
