A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court was a novel written by Samuel Clemens 1889. It was science fiction, a time travel story of a person from 19th century Connecticut meeting King Arthur.

History Edit

In 1893, Data overheard Clemens remark to a reporter that his idea of a Yankee time traveler wasn’t as farfetched an idea as he once thought, having encountered people in San Francisco who were from the future. The reporter thought Clemens was writing a sequel to his time-travel novel. (TNG episode: "Time's Arrow")

In 2370, Jean-Luc Picard read the novel during a four day respite, or one with a similar plot. He found it boring, disliking the gore, and erased it. (TNG novel: Balance of Power)

In 2372, Lwaxana Troi ran a holosuite program in Quark's Bar of King Arthur’s Court. Being in a depressed state, she described the court as “love betrayed, dreams shattered.” (DS9 episode: "The Muse")

In 2376, in a holodeck recreation of Ireland, Kathryn Janeway gave Michael Sullivan a copy of the novel. She said it was partly about people from different time periods who become lovers. (VOY episode: "Spirit Folk")
