For the VOY episode, please see Non Sequitur (episode).

A non sequitur (Latin for "it does not follow") was a line of reasoning said to proceed from another, but which in reality did not make sense.

The probe Nomad referred to three claims made by James T. Kirk as non sequiturs in 2267:

a) That the crew of the USS Enterprise could not board Nomad's ship.
b) That if Nomad cared to leave their ship, the Enterprise would provide needed life support to accomodate them.
c) That a supposedly inferior "biological unit" created Nomad. (TOS: "The Changeling")

In the 24th century, Starfleet named one of its ships after this phrase. (TNG: "Conspiracy")
