Sensing an opportunity, Apollo has swooped down from Pollux IV and returned to Earth, declaring that it is only he and his fellow gods who can deliver the Federation from the temporal anomaly crisis. Can you redirect Apollo’s benevolence towards the Ferengi Traditionalists, who are in need of a miracle, or the Gamma Quadrant by way of the Bajorans, who know how to speak to a god? 
- Apollo: "It gladdens my heart to see Earth's green fields after so many eons. I have come to you in your time of need, my children, to offer the salvation you seek. Worship my people as you once did, as your only true gods, and I will still the unraveling skein of time."
- Platonian Kirk: "Being called a god once doesn't give him the right to our devotion now. We stopped him once before by destroying the source of his power, but the identity of that source isn't so obvious now. Starfleet Command is at a loss, but I've come up with a somewhat controversial plan."
- Platonian Kirk: "Counselor Troi and I will claim to be the sole Starfleet officers who have seen the light. Though we've failed to convince our fellow humans--or half-humans--we think Apollo might have better luck with another species, say, the Ferengi. The Traditionalists could certainly use a god's help right now."
- Goddess of Empathy Troi: "If the Traditionalists fail to see the profit in such an arrangment, I suggest appealing to the Bajorans. They're loyal to their Prophets, of course, but they could offer Apollo access to the Gamma Quadrant. There are millions of potential worshippers for him on the other side of the wormhole."
- Goddess of Empathy Troi: "Thanks to your hard work, Apollo's setting up a new temple in the Gamma Quadrant. I suppose he got bored with waiting for the Federation to bow to him. It's a good thing, as I imagine an offensive response might have been next."
- Goddess of Empathy Troi: "As a reward for the Bajorans introducing him to a whole quadrant of potential worshippers, Apollo's offered to look for other powerful entities to help with the temporal anomaly crisis. Whatever he finds, Starfleet will be grateful for any help we can get."
- Platonian Kirk: "And I thought my first meeting with Apollo was trying. Starfleet Command is threatening to demote me, claiming I've violated all sorts of Federation laws, but I say we're better off placating a god than angering one. It's worked out very well for the Traditionalists. "
- Platonian Kirk: "Apollo wants to repay his new children for their loyalty. He says he'll find them a master of commerce to lead them in a new age of industry. Whoever he has in mind, they'll have to be pretty damn clever to be a match for the Ferengi."
BUG: The threshold reward for 1500 VP is incorrect, i.e. Starfleet Command Uniform (ENT) i.o. Starfleet Command Uniform (TOS).
- Children of Apollo 2 was the first re-run, which started on November 29, 2018.
