"We're writers, not vikings."
– Julius Eaton, 1953 ("Far Beyond the Stars")

Julius Eaton, who published under the pseudonym Julius Bass, was a science fiction writer for Incredible Tales magazine in New York in the 1950s and husband to Kay Eaton. Julius and Kay often collaborated on their stories and were accused by Herbert Rossoff of being overly sentimental in their work.

Ironically, though his writing explored the future and the technologies it might bring, Julius was appalled by the everyday advances of his age such as White Rose Redi-Tea. While his wife was of the opinion that H.G. Wells would have liked the idea of 'instant' iced tea, Eaton maintained that no self-respecting Englishman would. (DS9: "Far Beyond the Stars")

Julius Eaton was played by Alexander Siddig. At the time of the episode's filming, the actor was married to Nana Visitor, who played his wife Kay.
His name comes from the script.
The authors of the Star Trek Encyclopedia (4th ed., vol. 1, p. 228) thought Julius Eaton "might have existed in some alternate reality, or perhaps only in certain reaches of Ben Sisko's mind."
