For the Delta Quadrant planet or Paramount Studios set, please see Planet Hell.

Hell was the underworld in some ancient Human religions, typically ruled by a figure called the Devil. It was believed people would be sent here after their death, if they did not adhere to the religion's code.

A fabled location similar to Hell was Hell-Fire. (TOS: "The Cage")

In the 17th century, John Milton of Earth wrote in his poem Paradise Lost that "It is better to rule in Hell than serve in Heaven." (TOS: "Space Seed")

In 1999, Henry Janeway sarcastically asked Shannon O'Donnell if, upon his refusal to sign over the property Alexandria Books sat on to the Millennium Gate project, she would follow them "to Canton, Ohio, or the Third Circle of Hell, or wherever it is they decide to build this damn thing." (VOY: "11:59")

In 2267, Matthew Decker considered that the Planet killer came "Right out of Hell". (TOS: "The Doomsday Machine") That same year, Lazarus had proclaimed that he would chase his counterpart, the anti-Lazarus, to the very "Fires of Hell". (TOS: "The Alternative Factor")

The Klingon Gre'thor also resembled Human Hell, and is the place in afterlife where dishonorable warriors are brought. (TNG: "Devil's Due")

Joseph Sisko often told his son, Benjamin Sisko, that "the road to Hell is paved with good intentions." (DS9: "In the Pale Moonlight")

The word "Hell" is often used in Terran vernacular as an epithet, as in an exclamation that Captain James T. Kirk used at least once; "Let's get the Hell out of here." (TOS: "The City on the Edge of Forever")

Hell was referenced in the final draft and the revised final draft of the script for TOS: "The Enemy Within", which described space as "heaven for some... hell for others...."
In an underlined sentence from a memo Gene Roddenberry wrote D.C. Fontana about her first draft script of TOS: "Charlie X" (the memo was dated 13 June 1966), Roddenberry emphatically advised that, owing to the influence of Charlie Evans, the USS Enterprise "should become a hell ship!" Hell was consequently referenced in the episode's final draft script, with Captain Kirk warning Spock and Doctor McCoy that, due to Charlie's presence on the vessel, the Enterprise might become "a hell ship," to which McCoy, considering that Evans had already begun to have substantial destructive influence on the ship, rhetorically asked, "Isn't that what we've got now?"
