A bust of Darwin

Text mentioning Darwin and his Galápagos journey

Charles Darwin was a 19th century English natural historian and geologist. Based on a study of finches on the Galápagos Islands, which provided vital biological clues, he originated Human understanding of evolution.

His work was mentioned in the Handbook of Exobiology read by Cutler in 2151, regarding the evolution of termites observed on Loracus Prime. (ENT: "Strange New World")

A bust of Darwin was kept by Noonian Soong in his lab on Terlina III by 2367. (TNG: "Brothers")

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 183), the Darwin Genetic Research Station on Gagarin IV was named for Charles Darwin. In that source, his years of birth and death were given as 1809 and 1882, respectively.
In a scene cut from the final version of Star Trek Nemesis, Jean-Luc Picard noted that Darwin sailed aboard HMS Beagle without a single musket. [1]
