Friedrich Nietzsche was a 19th century Human philosopher who stressed the importance of the unique and autonomous individual. One of Nietzsche's ideas was to affirm the superiority of the Übermensch (homo superior or 'super-human'). Nietzsche explains the steps through which man can become an Übermensch:
- By his will to power, manifested destructively in the rejection of, and rebellion against, old ideals and moral codes
- By his will to power, manifested creatively in overcoming nihilism and re-evaluating old ideals or creating new ones
- By a continual process of self-overcoming
In 2154, Malik likened himself, and the Augments, to Nietzsche's Übermensch. Malik quoted Nietzche, stating: "Mankind is something to be surpassed." Captain Jonathan Archer was skeptical of that analysis and asked Malik if Nietzsche would have really pictured the Augments as Übermensch. (ENT: "Borderland")
