Doctor Sigmund Freud was a highly noted Human psychologist in the 19th and 20th century. Some of his writings included Totem and Taboo, Three Contributions to the Theory of Sex, The Interpretation of Dreams, and The Problem of Anxiety. (TNG: "The Big Goodbye") According to Deanna Troi, Freud once said, "dreams are the royal road to the knowledge of the mind." (TNG: "Phantasms")
Data began visiting a holographic version of Freud in the holodeck for a psychoanalysis in 2370, after having nightmares about workmen ripping up the USS Enterprise-D and attacking him. After a session with Freud, Data did not feel he was helped and sought counseling from Troi. She gave him a different analysis and said, "next time see me before you see Sigmund." Troi also told Data that even Freud did not interpret everything as "sometimes a cigar is just a cigar." Later, Freud was "murdered" by one of the workmen. (TNG: "Phantasms")
