Sir Thomas Erpingham was a character in William Shakespeare's play Henry V.

In 2366, Data as a disguised Henry V, was asked by Michael Williams under which captain he served, to which Henry replied that he served under Sir Thomas Erpingham. Williams considered Erpingham a good officer and replied "good for you". When asked by Williams what the captain thought about the chance of the English army defeating their enemies, Henry responded, "Even as men wrecked upon a sand, that look to be washed off the next tide". Williams then asked Henry if Erpingham had expressed his opinion to the king, to which Henry responded that he had not.(TNG: "The Defector")
