"The Tyger" was a poem written by Earth poet William Blake in the late 18th century. (TOS: "Charlie X")

Charlie Evans forced Commander Spock to recite the first two lines of the poem, when he was taking command of the USS Enterprise in 2266:

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night
"Tyger" is the spelling used by William Blake himself, although this is frequently modernised to "Tiger" in many versions.
In the final draft script of "Charlie X", this verse was instead one referencing Tweedledum and Tweedledee.
