In Greek mythology, Apollo was one of the most important Olympian gods. The son of the god Zeus and the goddess Leto, Apollo was often associated with prophecy, medicine, music and poetry, archery, and the care of flocks and herds.
He was also frequently associated with the higher developments of civilization, such as law, philosophy, and the arts. Finally, in Greek mythology, Apollo driving his chariot through the sky was associated with the movement of the Sun. He was a twin brother to Artemis, goddess of hunting, though Athena was also a sister of his as well.
The image of Apollo was preserved for thousands of years in artistic works. One of these artistic works, the design for the mission insignia of Apollo 17, included a profile of Apollo facing to his left. Additionally, the mission insignia for Apollo 13 depicted the steeds of Apollo riding over Luna. (ENT: "First Flight")
In 2267, the USS Enterprise encountered Apollo on Pollux IV. There, they learned that the Greek gods were, in fact, a band of explorers who had visited Earth five thousand years earlier and established themselves as gods to the people of that era. From things Apollo said to Carolyn Palamas, it seems that they may actually have, in some sense, considered themselves to be gods, but it is clear they also knew they weren't gods in the same sense the ancient Greeks believed them to be.
