Lemuel Gulliver was a character created by 18th century writer Jonathan Swift. He was the narrator and hero of the novel Gulliver's Travels.

Biography[edit | edit source]

In the year 1726, the novel Gulliver's Travels was published. In Part 1, chapter 1, Gulliver washed ashore on Lilliput in 1699 and was captured by dozens of six-inch-tall Lilliputians, who secured him to a sled with dozens of tiny ropes.

In the 2340s, during recess, a young girl in elementary school on the Earth colony Rampart discovered a lone, weathered page from the novel. The page contained a drawing of Gulliver in Lilliput tied to a sled by tiny ropes by Lilliputians. Gulliver’s writing described a Lilliputian poking the inside of his nostril with a spear. The girl, Amoret, became enamored by the page, which was contraband on Rampart, and it spurred her to become a Dissenter.

In 2366, Deanna Troi had a waking dream in which Gulliver appeared and heroically saved Jean-Luc Picard, William T. Riker, Data, Troi and a group of Dissenters from being given lethal injections by Cephalic Security in the city of Verity on Rampart. Gulliver appeared 100 feet tall, in his late 30s, wearing seafaring clothes from the 18th century, and had tiny ropes hanging off his arms and legs as if he’d just freed himself from the Lilliputians. Gulliver scooped up the USS Enterprise crew, and his hand felt warm. Troi sensed he was real and alive. Cephalic Security eventually was able to kill him with shots from a truck-mounted radiation cannon. (TNG novel: Gulliver's Fugitives)

Also in 2366, faced with the threat of sentient nanites, Captain Picard kept thinking about Gulliver and being “overpowered by Lilliputians.” (TNG episode: "Evolution")

In 2370, Benjamin Sisko thought the personnel of the Okana Shipyards constructing the USS Hannibal looked like Lilliputians swarming over Gulliver from his perspective. (DS9 novel: Antimatter)

In 2376, Picard was again reminded of Lilliputians and Gulliver when he approached the USS Enterprise via a shuttlecraft and saw thousands of Elaysians swarming over his ship. (TNG novel: Gemworld, Book One)

Also in 2376, during a Captain Proton adventure, Tom Paris beamed into a room that had tiny chairs and tables which reminded him of Gulliver and the Lilliputians. (VOY - Gateways novel: No Man's Land)
