Those stories were also the source of the nomenclature "Briar Patch" given to an area of space in Sector 441. While engaged in a battle in that area in 2375, Commander William T. Riker mentioned Br'er Rabbit as an analogy while strategizing ways to beat off Son'a pursuers. He explained the Riker Maneuver by saying "time to use the Briar Patch like Br'er Rabbit did...". (Star Trek: Insurrection)
The Br'er Rabbit stories also existed in the mirror universe. Using the Br'er Rabbit approach, the archaeologist for hire Jean-Luc Picard advised his former patron Gul Madred to destroy the Iconian probe which was launched from the surface of the planet. As Picard had hoped, Madred took no action, believing it to be a transparent ruse on the part of Picard's allies in the Terran Rebellion. Consequently, Madred's Galor-class warship Hebitia suffered a total systems failure due to the effects of the probe and was soon destroyed. (TNG - Mirror Universe novel: The Worst of Both Worlds)
