Immortality was the avoidance or reversion of death or an entity that appeared to exist forever.
Immortality is one of the defining characteristics of the Q. The fact that the Q Continuum forced immortality onto other Q dismayed one of the Q who would attempt suicide. He claimed that immortality was one of the vulnerabilities of the Q. (VOY: "Death Wish")
The Greek gods were immortal. In order to end their existence, they spread themselves against the wind, becoming thinner until reaching a point where they could not reform into their bodies. (TOS: "Who Mourns for Adonais?")
The Gideons, in practice, were immortal for awhile between the elimination and reintroduction of germs on their planet, as death came to them only when their body couldn't regenerate itself due to disease. (TOS: "The Mark of Gideon")
Dr. Bathkin and his successor Elias Giger attempted to make themselves immortal by developing a cellular regeneration and entertainment chamber. Giger eventually succeeded in creating this machine and shared his interest with Weyoun. (DS9: "In the Cards")
Near immortality Edit
Roger Korby believed that a person could have practical immortality by continuously transferring his or her consciousness into an android body. (TOS: "What Are Little Girls Made Of?") This was later offered to Uhura by Harry Mudd on the planet Mudd. (TOS: "I, Mudd")
Faux immortality Edit
Although the Borg discarded drones once they were irreparably damaged, their memories continued to exist within the Borg Collective. Seven of Nine compared this to the Human concept of immortality, and it helped relieve any fear of death. (VOY: "Mortal Coil")
