Jules Verne (8 February, 1828 - 24 March, 1905) was a French author who lived on Earth during the 19th and 20th centuries. He was famed as a pioneer of the field of science fiction writing.

As a child, Benny Russell read Verne's books, which he borrowed from his school library, and was inspired by his works to become as science fiction writer himself. (DS9 novelization: Far Beyond the Stars, TOS - Crucible novel: Provenance of Shadows)

Upon her revival from cryogenic suspension in the year 2371, Amelia Earhart, unconvinced of what she was hearing about the USS Voyager, stated that space travel was purely science fiction, such as the work of Wells. (VOY episode: "The 37's")
