In the mid-22nd century, a quote from The Aeneid, "audentes fortuna juvat" (Book 10, line 284), appeared on the Columbia's dedication plaque. Translated into the English language as "Fortune favors the bold," this quote became an Earth proverb. (ENT: "Home", "Affliction" set artwork)
Prior to traveling back in time to the 20th century aboard the HMS Bounty, James T. Kirk cited a variation of this quote to himself, stating "May fortune favor the foolish," moments before giving the order to engage the slingshot effect. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)
