I'm not sure if you are trying to play semantical games or not, but once more for emphasis, I never said it was the central theme of Trek or any Trek series, simply something that kept happening and goes to show realism is not a big priority in Trek.
I'm not playing semantical games at all. Quite the reverse. You used the example of god-like beings in Star Trek as an example that realism isn't a big priority. I'm simply pointing out that Trek covered many more 'realistic issues' than 'fantastical' ones Death, drugs, disabilities, unplanned parentage, religion, among others
