Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin was an American astronaut and engineer. He was a member of NASA's Apollo program. In 1969, he became the second Human to set foot on Earth's Moon (after Neil Armstrong) during the Apollo 11 mission.

After Jonathan Archer was passed up to pilot Starfleet's first Warp 2 flight in favor of A.G. Robinson and kept on as backup pilot, Archer compared himself to Aldrin, telling Ruby no one remembers what Aldrin said when he first stepped on the moon since he wasn't the first. (ENT: "First Flight")

Incidentally, Aldrin's first words when he stepped onto the surface of the moon were, "Beautiful view. Magnificent desolation."

An image depicting Aldrin on the moon was contained in the library computer aboard the USS Enterprise in 2254. (TOS-R: "The Cage")

A year later, in the alternate reality, another image of Buzz Aldrin on the moon was on display in the Shipyard Bar in Riverside, Iowa. (Star Trek)

The real Buzz Aldrin was a speaker at the Star Trek: 30 Years and Beyond special, where he encouraged working towards manned exploration of Mars.
Stock footage of Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong walking to the launchpad for the Apollo 11 mission appeared in the main title sequence of Star Trek: Enterprise. (Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 16))
