Sun Tzu was a Chinese general and philosopher on Earth in the 6th century BC, best known for his influential text The Art of War.

Sun Tzu was still required reading at Starfleet Academy during the 24th century. Both Jean-Luc Picard and William T. Riker were familiar with his works; upon reading Riker's mind in 2364, Portal 63 was fascinated by Sun Tzu's wisdom and considered it similar to Tkon thinking. (TNG: "The Last Outpost")

Sun Tzu once said that "the greatest victories are those won without fighting". When Malcolm Reed quoted him thus to Marab in 2154, the Klingon replied with the opposite viewpoint of Kahless, who had once said "there is no victory without combat". (ENT: "Divergence")
