When a survey team of the USS Voyager beamed down to the planet of the Sky Spirits in 2372, Chakotay saw a bird he felt resembled a hawk in the sky. Shortly thereafter, Neelix was attacked by the bird and nearly lost one of his eyeballs. (VOY: "Tattoo")
When Leonardo da Vinci began conceptualizing his flying machine, he initially took the "flapping approach", which mimicked the way a bat or a sparrow flew; his attempt was unsuccessful. It was not until Kathryn Janeway suggested that he should base it on the hawk, that his idea finally took off: "a creature that glides through the air." (VOY: "Scorpion")
