Orville Wright (1871-1948), was an inventor and the brother of Wilbur Wright Together, these brothers from Ohio were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible. (ENT: "North Star")

Their aircraft, the Wright Flyer, was historically significant even as late as the mid 22nd century. On a failed Skagaran colony in the Delphic Expanse, the teacher Bethany educated Human and Skagaran children about the Wright Brothers' historic flight in 2153, showing them a picture of Wilbur, who was flying the plane, and his brother. (ENT: "North Star")

In 2372, before Lieutenant Tom Paris attempted the first transwarp flight by Humans, Captain Kathryn Janeway told him he would be joining an elite group of pilots, including Orville Wright. (VOY: "Threshold")

A scene featuring their historic flight is also featured in the opening credits for Star Trek: Enterprise.
Orville Wright was also mentioned in a cut line in the script of Star Trek: First Contact
