This image was a piece of artwork used in the production of TNG: "The Naked Now". It appeared on-screen behind Data aboard the SS Tsiolkovsky.

It is a dedication plaque of that vessel, created by Michael Okuda's art department. It was been reproduced in The Official Star Trek: The Next Generation Magazine, Vol. 15, June 1991, p. 34 and by Okuda himself as part of convention presentations.

It reads:

К. З. ЦИОПКОВСКИЙ
Oberth-class - Starfleet registry NCC-53911
Baikonur Cosmodrome, USSR, Earth
Commissioned stardate 40291.7
"The Earth is the cradle of the mind but one cannot remain in the cradle forever."
The Russian text К. З. ЦИОПКОВСКИЙ is misspelled: as, according to the Star Trek Encyclopedia, the ship is named for the Russian rocket scientist Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, it should read К. Э. ЦИОЛКОВСКИЙ. It would appear that the artist failed to recognize the subtle difference between the letters З (Z) and Э (E) and between the letters П (P) and Л (L) as well.
