Memory Beta, the wiki for licensed Star Trek content.

Aladdin was a Human folk tale, originating from the Arabian region on Earth, and included in the classic collection Arabian Nights. It takes its name from its main character, a young man who becomes master of a powerful djinni.

While exploring the city of Stratos over Ardana and encountering a large handleless door, Dr. Bart Faulwell jokingly suggested it could be "like an Aladdin door," which would open by speaking a secret phrase. (CoE eBook: Signs from Heaven)

This reference is inaccurate, however, as it was another of the Arabian Nights stories, Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, in which the thieves' den was unlocked with the words, "Open Sesame."

Aladdin is the title character in one of the most famous stories from One Thousand and One Nights. Despite its Middle Eastern origins, the story is classified by many as a fairy tale. The character and story have been depicted or spoofed by the Muppets on several occasions.

Appearances

  • In a Sesame Street News Flash sketch from Season 8 of Sesame Street, Aladdin's magic lamp is electrical, as opposed to the oil lamp traditionally used in the story. When Aladdin asks the Genie for help turning the light on, the Genie shoots back that he isn't an electrician, so Kermit suggests that Aladdin screw in a light bulb, plug the lamp into an electrical outlet, and turn on the switch. In addition to his magic lamp, Aladdin has a magic toaster and a magic hot-comb. In this appearance, Aladdin was performed by Frank Oz, and used the Anything Muppet pattern Large Lavender Live Hand.
  • When The Muppet Show featured a sketch with Aladdin in episode 518, the character was played by Gonzo.
