Lemuel Gulliver, hero and narrator of Gulliver's Travels

Gulliver's Travels was a novel written by Jonathan Swift in 1726.


In 2266, an experience similar to the adventure in Gulliver's Travels where Lemuel Gulliver was tied to a sled by Lilliputians was had by James T. Kirk on the planet Kujal. Solar radiation similar to spiroid epsilon waves had slowly shrunk the population to a height of a few inches. General Kwy led an assault of at least a dozen aircraft which fired bolas that whipped around Kirk and dragged him to the ground. He was gassed and hoisted by cranes onto a wheeled cart. He was taken to the city of Fara-3, where he found that Spock and Nyota Uhura had similarly been captured. (TOS comic: "Dwarf Planet")

In the 2340s, during recess, a little girl in elementary school on the Earth colony Rampart discovered a lone, weathered page from Gulliver's Travels, from Part 1 near the end of chapter 1. The page contained a drawing of Lemuel Gulliver in Lilliput tied to a sled by tiny ropes by Lilliputians. The text on the page said, “About four Hours after we began our Journey, I awakened by a very ridiculous Accident; for the Carriage being stopped awhile to adjust something that was out of Order, two or three of the young Natives had the Curiosity to see how I looked when I was asleep; they climbed up into the Engine, and advancing very softly to my Face, one of them, an Officer in the Guards, put the sharp End of His Half-Pike a good way up into my left Nostril, which tickled my Nose like a Straw, and made me sneeze violently . . .” The girl, Amoret, became enamored by the page, which was contraband on Rampart, and it spurred her to become a Dissenter.

The complete novel had belonged to Montoya, who was caught by Cephalic Security police. Montoya had scattered the pages to the winds so that the book would not be censored. The police officers retrieved all of the pages save one and incinerated them. (TNG novel: Gulliver's Fugitives)

In 2370, when Commander Benjamin Sisko saw workers walking about on the USS Hannibal's hull, he was reminded of the Lilliputians tying down Gulliver and crawling all over him. (DS9 novel: Antimatter)
