The Adventures of Flotter, a series of children's holonovels, utilized a fairy tale aesthetic and style. Naomi Wildman enjoyed the holoprograms during her time aboard the USS Voyager. Several adults aboard Voyager had similarly enjoyed these fairy tale-style adventures during their own childhoods. (VOY: "Once Upon a Time")
The term could also be used in a derogatory manner in reference to something that the speaker might find absurd or ridiculous. Some Cardassians, such as Dukat, thought the Celestial Temple was a Bajoran "fairy tale" before the Bajoran wormhole was discovered in 2369. They also thought the same about ancient contact, at least until 2371. When Dukat told Benjamin Sisko that he was not threatening him, but merely concerned for his safety, Sisko replied sarcastically, "Ah. Then I'm glad I was wrong. For a moment there I thought that you had been put in charge of the Cardassian Ministry for the Refutation of Bajoran Fairy Tales." (DS9: "Explorers")
In 2376, Neelix assured Tom Paris that he hadn't told the children on USS Voyager Mother Goose stories, as they were frightening, giving examples of ogres and child-eating monsters. (VOY: "The Haunting of Deck Twelve")
