Sherwood Forest was an area located in England, Earth, most commonly known for its association with the legendary Robin Hood and his Merry Men.
In 2367, Q sent Starfleet Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the command crew of the USS Enterprise-D into a fantasy recreation of Sherwood Forest in order to prove that Picard had feelings for Vash.
To that end, Q turned Vash into Maid Marian, Picard into Robin Hood, and the rest of the command crew into the other famous characters. Picard had to rescue Vash from Nottingham Castle as she had agreed to marry Sir Guy of Gisbourne in order to avoid being executed. (TNG: "Qpid")
In 2369, Miles O'Brien recalled these events when he mentioned to the senior staff of Deep Space 9 that Vash and Q had "met in Sherwood Forest". (DS9: "Q-Less")
