The pages seen in the episode were from the mystery novel, Dangerous Ground, by author Frances Sil Wickware. This novel was published in 1946. Information on Sigmund Freud was from page 37.

He once was on the same car as Gertrude Stein on the Orient Express, so they had dinner together every evening. (TNG: "Emergence")

Data began visiting Freud in the holodeck for a psychoanalysis in 2370, after having nightmares about workers ripping up the USS Enterprise-D and attacking him. He later had nightmares about the crew and bizarre things that were happening to them; in one of those Freud was killed by the workers.

Freud diagnosed Data as a classic polymorphous perverse, who for example desired to possess his own mother. As Data had no mother, Freud was no help to Data, who later saw Deanna Troi in a counseling session, where 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." (TNG: "Phantasms")

In 2374, Captain Janeway told Tuvok that Freud had considered Leonardo da Vinci to have had a problem with his mother. (VOY: "Concerning Flight")

The hologram of Freud in "Phantasms" was played by actor Bernard Kates.
According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 161}, the birth and death years of Sigmund Freud were 1856 and 1939, respectively. He was identified as a founder of psychoanalysis.
