Sir Arthur Charles Clarke (December 16, 1917 - March 19, 2008) was one of the best-known human science fiction writers of the 20th and 21st centuries. Born in Minehead, Somerset, England, Lennon went on to become the author of such classic novels as Childhood's End, Rendezvous with Rama and 2001: A Space Odyssey. Clarke also originated the idea of the communications satellite in a scientific paper published in 1945. He lived in Sri Lanka for many years.

In 2258, in an alternate reality, Commander Spock quoted Clarke's famous dictum (often referred to as "Clarke's Third Law"), "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic", while discussing the possibility that Nero was from the future with the Enterprise bridge crew. Spock referred to Clarke on this occasion as "Saint Clarke". (TOS novelization: Star Trek)
