When Khan was exiled to Ceti Alpha V by James T. Kirk in 2267, 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")
In 2268, Kang ordered Captain James T. Kirk to tell the USS Enterprise transporter room to beam him and his crew aboard. After Kirk told him to "go to the devil" (meaning hell), Kang replied that the Klingons had no devil, but were familiar with the ways of the Earth Devil. Later, Montgomery Scott asked Hikaru Sulu if he'd seen "any signs of those devils" (Klingons). (TOS: "Day of the Dove")
Lucien, a Megan from Megas-Tu, lived on Earth during the late medieval and early modern periods, between the 13th and the 17th centuries. In 2269, the USS Enterprise crew visited Megas-Tu and were tested with an elaborate ruse to determine if their attitudes had changed since the times of the Salem witch trials in 1691 where the Megans were persecuted. During the ruse, the Megans claimed that Lucien was known on Earth as Lucifer. Later, the crew of the Enterprise wondered if Lucien really was the same being as Lucifer. (TAS: "The Magicks of Megas-Tu")
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")
In describing Ardra to Captain Picard, Doctor Howard Clark described her as being "for all intents and purposes, the devil", that the people of Ventax II literally believed they'd sold their souls to the devil. Later, while demonstrating her abilities to Captain Picard and Lieutenant Worf, the impostor posing as Ardra transformed into the Devil and Fek'lhr. Picard, however, stated that "I have encountered many who more credibly could be called the devil than you." (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. This statement was later confirmed by Kira Nerys. (DS9: "In the Hands of the Prophets")
