In William Shakespeare's play The Tempest, Prospero was the ousted duke of Milan and the father of Miranda, as well as a powerful magician. He lives with his daughter on an island.

Data took on the role of Prospero in a holodeck simulation of The Tempest he performed in late 2370. (TNG: "Emergence")

Rene Auberjonois once likened his own character of Ezral from ENT: "Oasis" to Prospero. (Star Trek: Communicator issue 139, p. 39)
Worf's role in DS9 novel The Tempest was described by author Susan Wright as being Prospero. (Voyages of Imagination)
