"Sea-Fever" was a poem by 20th century Earth poet John Masefield. The poem includes the line "all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by" which appeared on the dedication plaques of the USS Enterprise-A and the USS Defiant.
In 2287, Kirk quoted from the poem while aboard a shuttlecraft approaching the Enterprise-A. McCoy misidentified the poem's provenance as Herman Melville, but was corrected by Spock. (Star Trek V: The Final Frontier)
