John Masefield was a 20th century English writer and poet, noted for his poem Sea-Fever which contained the line: "And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by." This line appeared on the dedication plaque of the USS Defiant.
In 2372, Quark paraphrased Masefield's poem Sea-Fever, while aboard his ship Quark's Treasure, saying "all I ask is a tall ship... and a load of contraband to fill her with." (DS9: "Little Green Men")
