Isaac Asimov was a male human author of numerous science fiction stories and novels in the 20th century. Asimov first postulated the possibility of a positronic brain, which was eventually realized by Dr. Noonien Soong. (TNG episode: "Datalore")

Asimov also famously speculated, long before first contact, that there could be tens of thousands of planets capable of supporting Human life. (TOS novel: Strangers from the Sky)

The Asimov-written short story collection, I, Robot, was required reading for those in Starfleet Academy's Introduction to Artificial Intelligence course. (Last Unicorn RPG module: Starfleet Academy Handbook)

The USS Asimov was named in his honor. (Decipher RPG module: Starfleet Operations Manual)

In real life, Asimov was a friend of Gene Roddenberry's, and served as a science consultant on Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
