The War of the Worlds is a book written by author H.G. Wells. It takes place in England at the turn of the 20th century, and describes an invasion of Earth by aliens from Mars. They built flying machines as part of this invasion.

Charles Tucker read the book as a child. (ENT: "Similitude")

A deleted scene from ENT: "Storm Front" referred to Orson Welles' radio adaptation of the book, and the ensuing panic. Jonathan Archer also claimed that Tucker once replayed the broadcast for him.
The USS Thunderchild was named after the ironclad warship described in The War of the Worlds, the HMS Thunder Child. The Thunder Child destroyed two of three Martian fighting machines while defending a steamer that was carrying refugees out of England.
