Horatio Hornblower text

Jake Sisko's PADD copy of Commodore Hornblower

Commodore Hornblower was a novel written in the mid-20th century on Earth. It was one of several tales featuring the character Horatio Hornblower.

Jake Sisko had a copy of this novel stored on his PADD in 2372. (DS9: "The Visitor")

He again read the same part of the novel that year two times, first when he met Onaya and later when his father cooked for them and Kasidy Yates. (DS9: "The Muse", "For the Cause")

Commodore Hornblower, (or The Commodore, as it is known in Great Britain) was written by C.S. Forester. The novel recounts the adventures of Royal Navy Captain Horatio Hornblower in the Baltic Rim during the latter-portion of the Napoleonic Wars. Hornblower, of course, was the basis of the protagonist of Gene Roddenberry's initial proposal for Star Trek.
The section of text seen in the episodes is from Chapter 1 of the novel. It is not an exact copy of the text, as some of the text has been altered for its appearance on the PADD.
