Ardra as the Devil

Ardra posing as Satan in 2367



See "Denebian slime devil" for the animal with this similar name.

The devil (also known as Satan or Lucifer) is a malevolent entity from Christianity as depicted in the Bible.

When Khan was exiled to Ceti Alpha V by James T. Kirk, he referred to a passage from Milton's poetic dramatization of the story of the Devil's fall from grace, Paradise Lost, in which the Devil states that it is "better to rule in Hell than serve in Heaven." (TOS: "Space Seed")

Matthew Decker compared the Planet killer to the Devil. (TOS: "The Doomsday Machine")

Lucien, a Megan from Megas-Tu, lived on Earth during the late medieval period, between the 13th to 17th centuries, where he was known by the name Lucifer. His appearance became the basis for the common Christian depiction of the Devil. (TAS: "The Magicks of Megas-Tu") Other religious characters resembling the biblical Devil included the Klingon Fek'lhr and the Ventaxian Ardra. (TNG: "Devil's Due")

On Omega IV, an entity known as the Evil One was cast in the same light as the Devil. Captain Ronald Tracey, in violation of the Prime Directive, tried to trick the Yangs into thinking that Spock was the Evil One. (TOS: "The Omega Glory")

While demonstrating her abilities to Captain Picard and Lieutenant Worf, the impostor posing as Ardra transformed into the Devil and Fek'lhr. (TNG: "Devil's Due")

In 2369 after Vedek Winn Adami accused Commander Benjamin Sisko and the Federation of living in a dark universe into which they wanted to drag the spiritual Bajorans into, Sisko replied that the Bajorans who lived and worked with the Federation officers aboard the station for months could prove that they were not the devil. (DS9: "In the Hands of the Prophets")

In the theology of the Bajoran religion, the Kosst Amojan plays an analogous role to the Judeo-Christian Satan and the Pah-wraiths to his fallen angels, the demons.

Captain Kathryn Janeway compared her unholy alliance with the Borg to, "a deal with the Devil." (VOY: "Scorpion")

The Devil (as seen in "Devil's Due") was played by Thad Lamey.
Kang tells James T. Kirk that the Klingons have no devil, but are familiar with the ways of the Earth devil in TOS: "Day of the Dove".
