"Sea-Fever" was a poem written by the Human poet John Masefield. It was first published in 1916 and is most famous for the following line:

"And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by"

This quote was used by Captain James T. Kirk (TOS movie: Star Trek V: The Final Frontier), Captain Jean-Luc Picard (TNG novel: The Forgotten War) and paraphrased by Quark (DS9 episode: "Little Green Men") In 2267 while Lieutenant Kevin Riley was looking up Irish poets on the computer a malfunction caused it to play Sea Fever.
