DEMIGODS A demigod is an immortal spiritual being, semi-divine in nature. Sometimes it is thought to be the offspring of a deity and another creature (animals, humans, other lesser beings or forces). Or it might be a "proto-god," needing only sufficient power and worship to reach full divinity which happened frequently. Or it may be an altogether inferior being who serves the true deities. All types of spirits - angels, devils, demons and so on - fall under the Demigods are defined by their attributes and their relationship to the world and the divine ( i f they serve one).

Retribution Servants of retribution are the divine police squad. They are sent out to deal with those who have particularly angered the deity - whether it be a follower who has transgressed against his faith, or a nonbeliever who has desecrated a place or object holy to the deity. Their powers are tailored for annoyance and destruction. They may just harass their target for some length of time specifie d by the deity. They might cause weapons he touches to shatter, make with voices and eerie visitations, or generally make every aspect of his life miserable.

Moon bases and galactic societies seem far away from the mysteries and superstitions of godlike powers. But even as people reach toward the stars, they risk discovering new things as mysterious and inexplicable as the creation of the universe was to our ancestors. Supernatural entities, or "gods" could easily be a part of this. Perhaps the most common theme in SF religion is the meeting of humanity with an intelligence or alien race which is so far advanced that it is for all intents and purposes god-like.
