Wilbur Wright (1867-1912), was an inventor and the brother of Orville Wright Together, these brothers from Ohio were the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed-wing powered flight possible. (ENT: "North Star")

Their aircraft, the Wright Flyer, was historically significant even as late as the mid 22nd century. On a failed Skagaran colony in the Delphic Expanse, the teacher Bethany educated Human and Skagaran children about the Wright Brothers' historic flight in 2153, showing them a picture of Wilbur, who was flying the plane, and his brother. (ENT: "North Star")

A scene featuring their historic flight is also featured in the opening credits for Star Trek: Enterprise.
