Geoffrey Chaucer (c. 1343 – October 25, 1400) was a Human author, poet, philosopher, bureaucrat, courtier and diplomat. Although he wrote many works, he was best remembered for his unfinished frame narrative The Canterbury Tales.
Tom Paris once had to recite Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales while a teenager. He recalled a line while examining ancient Klingon texts on Boreth and comparing B'Elanna Torres reading them to him reading Middle English. (VOY - Spirit Walk novel: Old Wounds)
- Chaucer's The Knight's Tale was quoted in the Star Trek Cookbook.
