"Star Trek: The Next Generation" Episode "Devil`s Due" (1991) The Enterprise crew faces a person claiming to be Ardra, a devil on the planet Ventax II.

The evil treatise can take many forms, but it is most related to a literal treatise written by the infernal power in question (whether Satan, Beelzebul, Mephistopeles or in some other way), which describes in detail the terms of the agreement and often requires the soul of the mortal after his death or (if not) after a certain time.

They visited these people in the form of humans or animals or were locked in a letter, account or vial, or even in a ring, wide and hollow inside. "The magicians are known," says Pierre Le Loyer, "who use demons, and to my great regret, I must admit that this practice is all too common." A 9th-century Miraculum Sancte Marie de Theophilo inserts a virgin as a mediator with the Diabolus, her "boss," and delivers the prototype of a series closely related in Western Latin literature.
