Herbert George Wells (or simply H.G. Wells) was a Human writer who lived from 1866 to 1946. Some of his best works include The Time Machine and The War of the Worlds.

In 1953, Kay Eaton told her husband Julius Eaton that Wells would have liked White Rose Redi-Tea. Julius replied that no self-respecting Englishman would. (DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars")

Daniels mentioned that Archer was thinking of time travel like an H.G. Wells novel. He said that in real life, it is much more complicated. (ENT: "Shockwave, Part II")

Charles Tucker read The War of the Worlds as a child. (ENT: "Similitude")

Upon her revival in the 24th century, Amelia Earhart, unconvinced of what she was hearing about the USS Voyager, stated that space travel was purely science fiction, such as the work of Wells. (VOY: "The 37's") Kathryn Janeway later explained how they were able to visit the holographic past to the hologram Michael Sullivan by asking him if he had ever read Wells' novel, The Time Machine. (VOY: "Spirit Folk")

In the 29th century, Starfleet named a starship class after him. (VOY: "Relativity")

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 680), H.G. Wells (1866-1946) was the author of The Time Machine (1895), The Invisible Man (1897), and The War of the Worlds (1898).
Furthermore, according to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 509), the USS Thunderchild in Star Trek: First Contact was named "for the H.M.S. Thunderchild, a fictional British warship from H.G. Well's classic novel The War of the Worlds."
