In Greek mythology, Pan was the son of Hermes, and the god of shepherds. He was an excellent musician, and was at home in wild places, such as forests, where he enjoyed the company of woodland nymphs. He was a member of a race of alien explorers, who visited Earth thousands of years ago and posed as gods.
In 2267, Apollo directed Kirk not to bring Spock with him to the surface of Pollux IV, claiming that Spock reminded him of Pan, and that Pan had always bored him. In a way, this proved Apollo's undoing, as Spock was able to marshal the resources of the USS Enterprise to destroy Apollo's temple and end his threat. (TOS: "Who Mourns for Adonais?")
