From TARDIS Index File, the free Doctor Who reference.

The Immortals (also known as Homo superior) had no official name, but were simply referred to as the Gods.

Summary

The Immortals are thought to be an advanced sub-species of Humans which evolved alongside them. They claimed to be the gods for many early civilizations, though other gods were already claimed, such as Set and most Horned Gods.

Known Immortals include the Haitian gods and the Greek gods, specifically Demeter, Persephone, Hermes, Hades, Poseidon and Zeus. Some Witches were apparently Immortals and the Players were also grouped in this category. (PDA: Deadly Reunion)

They may have been created as a result of the Dæmons' experiment on Earth.

Powers

The Immortals had a varying amount of power, with Zeus being the most powerful known Immortal. They can teleport themselves, but they have difficultly teleporting other beings. They have a multitude of psychic powers, including mind control and empathy. Immortals can travel through another plane, probably the Time Vortex. Individual Immortals have control over certain powers, such as Poseidon's control over the water. They can also shape-shift, but have a base form which they return to. (PDA: Deadly Reunion)

The Immortals are immortal, but with vague specifications. They can stop their aging, but they can seem to be whichever age they like. Immortals are very tough, but Hermes claims he could be killed by conventional means.

Hades had hordes of monsters (such as the satyrs and a gorgon) in his employment, but it is unclear whether they are Immortals, mental constructs or something else. Hermes mentions some were 'gods', but no creatures were specifically classified. For example, the satyrs weren’t very powerful and could be recreated after being annihilated, but one was able to maintain a mental force field.

Memory Beta, the wiki for licensed Star Trek content.

The Immortal appear to be a sub species of Human which is very difficult, if not impossible, to kill. Immortals are very similar to Humans, yet cease aging at a point, and can heal from all injuries almost instantaneously.

Evidently, one cannot know if they are an Immortal until their death. (TNG novel: Greater Than the Sum)

Gary Seven was aware of the existance of Immortals prior to 1984. (TOS novel: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh, Volume 1)

History

During the early years of the Galactic Civil War, the Immortal was assigned to take out the Tantive IV. It ambushed the Tantive IV while she was receiving the Death Star plans from the Rebel shuttle Maria, launching several Assault Gunboats to disable the corvette before jumping into hyperspace. The Immortal was due to return and deliver a shuttle carrying stormtroopers to capture the vessel after the Gunboats disabled it, however Rebel X-wings, led by Keyan Farlander, were able to destroy the Gunboats and allow the Tantive IV to escape.

Just hours later, while the Tantive IV was about to deliver the plans to the Mon Calamari Star Cruiser Liberty, the Immortal once again showed up and prevented the transfer, this time succeeding in disrupting Operation Skyhook. Keyan Farlander and Hamo Blastwell in R-22 Spearheads held off the Imperial attack while the Tantive IV escaped. The Tantive IV then proceeded to 'plan B' and moved to Tatooine. However, once there, it was intercepted by the Star Destroyer Devastator

The Immortal led several attacks on Rebel Alliance freighters and cruisers shortly before the Battle of Yavin. When privateers, acting on behalf of the Rebels, captured the Imperial BFF-1 bulk freighter Sidral II the Immortal attempted to prevent the transfer of its cargo of military equipment bound for the Death Star to the Rebel corvette Frazier. The Immortal was some distance away but launched TIE/ln starfighters and TIE/sa bombers. However, two R-22 Spearheads from Red Squadron, led by Keyan Farlander, prevented the TIEs from disrupting the transfer and the Rebels fled to hyperspace safely.

When the Rebels disabled an Imperial transport carrying officers headed for the Death Star, the Immortal attempted to prevent the shuttle Hunter from capturing the transport. However, by the time it arrived the transport had already been captured and was headed for the EF76 Nebulon-B escort frigate Inad. While fighters launched from the Immortal engaged Rebel Y-wings, more Imperial transports attempted to recapture the stolen transport. However, Farlander again destroyed the transports and the Rebels escaped.

During another mission it approached Defiance above Bestine IV and launched squadrons of TIE/sa bombers to destroy it. Most of the Defiance's pilots were away flying other missions but the ship was able to scramble three X-wings and two R-22 Spearheads in its defense. The Rebel pilots, including Farlander and Breth Gart, on temporary assignment from the Independence, were able to tarry them, until the Defiance hyperspaced away. Same happened with Independence as soon as the Death Star was completed.

The officers who had been previously captured by the Rebels were unable to reveal much information except that Bevel Lemelisk was leading the design team and that some of his team had recently traveled to Coruscant for a meeting with Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin. As the technicians left Coruscant on the CR90 corvette Godar bound for the Intrepid, the Rebels attacked with a Y-wing from Red Squadron, flown by Farlander, two X-wings from Blue Squadron and the Lambda-class shuttle Rescue 1. The Immortal launched TIEs to assist the escorting Assault Gunboats, but the Rebel fighters were able to hold off the Imperials while Farlander disabled the Godar and Rescue 1 conducted the boarding operation. After Rescue 1 captured the personnel and fled into hyperspace, Farlander destroyed the Godar before following the other Rebels.

Later the Immortal attacked the Mon Calamari Star Cruiser Independence in the Bestine system as part of a major Imperial offensive after the completion of the Death Star. The Imperial attack consisted of TIE Bombers to attack the cruiser while Assault Gunboats and TIE/In interceptors engaged the defending X-wings and R-22s. Despite splitting up and attacking from three different directions two of the Imperial bomber groups were quickly destroyed. The third made it through and began firing proton torpedoes at the Independence. The defending starfighters were caught up fighting the Gunboats but eventually broke away and were able to help the Independence's gunners destroy the last bombers. The Independence escaped to hyperspace with its shields down but with only minimal hull damage.

Behind the scenes

The incidents where Immortal hunted Tantive IV throughout the game, are perhaps based on C-3PO's lines 'There'll be no escape for the Princess this time' uttered while they were being boarded, suggesting that Leia as well as the ship, had also other encounters before finally falling to Darth Vader.

The book X-Wing: The Official Strategy Guide informs us that Darth Vader was onboard the ship while chasing Tantive IV. It's possible that the game authors were ignorant of the canon and Immortal was a mistaken made-up name for the canonical ship Devastator that appeared in the movie.

Immortal is a monster Type that exists in the game Yu-Gi-Oh! The Duelists of the Roses. Immortal cards are not affected by the effect of "Crush Card Virus" (in fact, they're powered by it).

Also immortal cards (not in the videogame)effect makes it so the only way for them to be removed from the field is by returning them to the owners hand.(Making hane-hane a genuine threat.)
