Sir Isaac Newton aboard the USS Voyager in 2372

Sir Isaac Newton (25 December 1642 – 20 March 1727) was a male Human scientist who lived during the 17th and 18th centuries.

He was credited with inventing calculus and what would later be termed Newtonian physics. (TOS novel: The Trellisane Confrontation)

Newton once encountered a Q later known as Quinn, who was responsible for jostling an apple tree and causing an apple to drop on Newton's head. Q remarked that if this chance encounter had not taken place that Newton would have most likely died forgotten in a debtors' prison in Liverpool and would have been suspected of killing several prostitutes. (VOY episode: "Death Wish")

He is mentioned, along with Albert Einstein and Surak, by David Marcus when telling his mother, Dr. Carol Marcus, how their names will go down in history. (TOS movie: Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan)

Lieutenant Commander Data once created a holodeck version of Newton, along with Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking, in order to observe their interactions in a game of poker. (TNG episode: "Descent, Part I")

Newton held the position of Lucasian Chair at Cambridge University. He lived in a house that became the traditional residence of the person holding the position. In the Q-created anti-time future experienced by Jean-Luc Picard from 2370, Data held the position and thus lived in the house as of 2396. (TNG episode: "All Good Things...")

One of the shuttlecraft attached to the USS Enterprise-D was named Isaac Newton in his honor. (TNG novel: The Death of Princes)

In 2372, Q transported Newton, Maury Ginsberg and Commander William T. Riker to the USS Voyager in order to convince Captain Kathryn Janeway that Quinn had had a profound impact on Earth's history. He was soon returned to his own time with no memory of his brief visit to the Delta Quadrant in the 24th century. (VOY episode: "Death Wish")
