Samuel Beckett (19061989) was an Irish writer and poet.

When Gideon Seyetik commented that "nothing of any worth was ever created by a pessimist", Benjamin Sisko cited Beckett, Vincent van Gogh and Y'Raka as examples of people who Sisko "wouldn't exactly call them optimists". Seyetik responded by describing the three's works as "dreary, dark and depressing. (DS9 episode: "Second Sight")

When a writer was crossing Vulcan's Forge and found it difficult, he remembered Beckett's words "I can't go on; I must go on; I will go on" in an effort to continue his journey. (ST - New Worlds, New Civilizations short story: "Tempered by the Forge")
