Schmidt was a German military officer during World War II.

The SS character played by the Hirogen Karr in a holographic recreation of this conflict in 2374 had served under Schmidt in Poland and Erwin Rommel in North Africa before being assigned to Sainte Claire in France in 1944. (VOY: "The Killing Game")

"Schmidt" is one of the most common if not the most common last name in German-speaking countries, and possible World War II Eastern Front candidates of general rank were Arthur, Gustav, Hans, or Rudolf, none of them of the SS, but of the regular Wehrmacht army branch.
