On May 25, 1961, Kennedy called for the people of the United States to dedicate itself to sending a human to their moon, Luna, and returning that human safely to Earth before the end of the decade, a challenge which was realized by the Apollo 11 mission, launched from Cape Kennedy, Florida in 1969.
Vic Fontaine often mentioned Kennedy. Odo once described Shakaar Edon as "a leader, a hero, a man with great charisma", which Vic believed sounded like Kennedy. In 2376, Fontaine described the similarities between Quark and Ro Laren as being "as clear as where Goldwater stands on JFK". (DS9 episode: "His Way", DS9 novel: Cathedral)
