Peter Pan was a classic story from Earth, written by author J.M. Barrie. It was the story of a boy that refuses to mature and adventures he has with three British children that, through wingless flight, accompany him to Neverland.

In 2293, when Pavel Chekov asked James T. Kirk where the next course should be, Kirk responded, "Second star to the right. And straight on 'til morning," a quote from the story. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country)

The quote used in the film is actually from the Walt Disney animated film adaptation, in which it is said by Peter to Wendy; the actual quote from the book was "Second to the right. And straight on 'til morning." However, neither version is directly cited in Star Trek VI.
Director Nicholas Meyer is a fan of J.M. Barrie's book and originally wanted to use the quote at the end of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, but it didn't make the final cut. (citation needededit) However, it appears in the novelization of that film, written by Vonda N. McIntyre.
In the reference book The Star Trek Compendium (4th ed., p. 42), TOS: "Miri" is likened to Peter Pan, with the characters of Jahn, Miri, and the Onlies said to symbolize Peter Pan, Wendy, and the Lost Boys respectively.
