Gilbert and Sullivan were a human musical composition team in the late 19th century. Playwright/lyricist William S. Gilbert and composer Arthur S. Sullivan gained fame for their satirical take on British society during the Victorian era.

A production of HMS Pinafore was mounted aboard the USS Enterprise in 2269, with Montgomery Scott in the role of Corcoran. (TOS - The Yesterday Saga novel: Yesterday's Son)

Captain Hikaru Sulu was fond of Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado, and hosted several performances while commanding the USS Excelsior. (VOY - The Brave and the Bold, Book Two novella: The Third Artifact) USS Enterprise-E officer Data had also performed The Mikado, and Deanna Troi used portions of his performance in 2379 to try to break captured Tezwan General Gyero Minza for information. (TNG novel: A Time to Heal)

In 2368, Beverly Crusher produced a production of The Pirates of Penzance, and tried to recruit Geordi La Forge for the part of the Major-General. (TNG episode: "Disaster")

In 2375, Lieutenant Commander Data was to play a role in HMS Pinafore. When he malfunctioned on the Ba'ku planet, Jean-Luc Picard and Worf sang a song from that operetta in order to distract him. (Worf initially assumed Gilbert and Sullivan were members of the Enterprise crew.) (TNG movie: Star Trek: Insurrection)
