Charles Dickens (February 7, 1812 - June 9, 1870) was a Human novelist who lived on Earth in the 19th century.

One of his novels, A Tale of Two Cities still rang true with its message of redemption overcoming foul conditions, for readers of the 23rd and 24th centuries. (TOS movie: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, DS9 episode: "Extreme Measures")

Some of Dickens' most famous works included A Christmas Carol, Bleak House and David Copperfield. All of his books were typically morality tales featuring the great cruelty that Dickens identified in Victorian England. (ENT episode: "Cold Station 12", and TNG episode: "Devil's Due").

In 2371, Thomas Riker discussed the works of Dickens with the Romulan Saket while they were both prisoners in a Cardassian labor camp on Lazon II. Soon after, Riker found himself discussing Dickens with Captain Jean-Luc Picard (while posing as Commander William T. Riker). (TNG novel: Triangle: Imzadi II)
