The question of a "higher power" have been tackled in different ways in the different series/movies. Too me the whole notion seems redundant in a Star Trek universe with species like Q,"wormhole aliens", Okampans, etc. These are some of the questions i ask myself: -A problem with the English language? Phrases like"Oh, my god" are hard to avoid. -Being produced in the US -Producers afraid of alienating religious people? -Are they conducting a thought experiment so the viewer ends up pondering his/her beliefs? - If there is a god. Are the klingon, human etc. the same god or what? What`s beyond a species like the Q considering they are already omnipotent. I`m wondering what you think?
