Is it canon that God is at the center of the galaxy? Also...

And what do we know from Star Trek universe about what is beyond the milky way?

Re: Is it canon that God is at the center of the galaxy? Also...

All I saw in ST5 was an insane alien which claimed to be God. This in no way means the alien actually WAS God.

This is also my attitude towards The God Thing.

As a Christian, I'm not offended by either of these things, because I simply don't believe either of them are God.

Anyone, or anything, can SAY that they are God. But only one can actually be so.

I don't know about god, but the basis of the devil is in the center of the galaxy, according to the Episode; The Magicks of Magus-Tu.

At least, I think it was the Center.

Canon is myth.

Like God.

Cool story.

Have we seen anything beyond the milky way?

In quotes.

Canonically speaking, we have no idea what's beyond the galactic edge, nor what that barrier could possibly be doing there.

As for what's at the galactic center: I just said. It's just some weird alien. Obviously not God. It just said it was.

That was answered in Futurama.
It is an exact duplicate/mirror Universe, with the only difference being that everyone wears CowBoy hats.

You know, if the universe is infinite in all directions (insert your mom joke), I actually am the center of the universe.


They didn't find God in TFF, it was only a powerful energy being. God was in people's hearts, according to Kirk's infinite wisdom. So I guess that one is canon.

My take on the "center of the galaxy" is that they are not referring to a exact point in the galaxy's core, but rather a general area inward of the Federation.

Given the speeds that are (usually) shown for starships, the voyages in The Magicks of Magus-Tu, and Final Frontier weren't multiple year journey's.

Now, is God at the center of the galaxy? Of course, because God is everywhere.

I don't think the galactic great barrier is mentionned in any of four canonical gospels.

Lots of space dust and other galaxies. The Enterprise made it to galaxy M-33 then the edge of the universe in "Where No One Has Gone Before".
